Summary

Kollel Yad Shaul is a Charedi yeshiva and Beit Midrash, based in Johannesburg, South Africa. Established in 1975, it was originally based in Yeoville, Johannesburg until 2000, when it moved to the suburb of The Gardens. Rabbi Boruch Dov Grossnass has headed "The Kollel," as it is known, for over 20 years; Rabbi Grossnass took over from the late Rabbi Mordechai Shakovitzky when the latter moved to Israel. The Kollel is also well known for its lending library. It previously housed the Yeshiva Pri Eitz Chaim.
