Rabbi Naftoly Bier
Rosh Kollel, Founder
Rabbi Naftoly Bier founded the Kollel in 1989. Originally from Elizabeth, NJ, he graduated from the Talmudical Yeshiva of Philadelphia and received his ordination from Beth Medrash Govoha in Lakewood, NJ. He and his wife, Rebbetzin Yehudis are involved in many aspects of the Boston community. Their home is open to anyone who needs to talk, revitalize, or eat a good meal. Rabbi Bier’s classes throughout Massachusetts are inspiring and thought-provoking. Rebbetzin Bier, originally from Monsey, NY, is a celebrated educator in the Aleph Bet Child Care center in Cambridge, MA. Together they’ve touched hundreds of lives. Rabbi Bier’s ideas, which have helped so many, have been compiled in a book, 20 Questions: A Guide to Living with Confidence and Joy. Rabbi Bier was strongly influenced by his seventh-grade rebbe, Rabbi Shmuel Kaufman, zt”l, who inculcated his talmidim with a sense of achrayus to Klal Yisrael.
