Yeshivas Toras Moshe, in Jerusalem, named in memory of Rav Moshe Soloveitchik zt"l, was founded in 1982 by his grandson, Rav Moshe Meiselman shlita. Over the years, Toras Moshe has become one of the leading yeshivos that caters to the serious advanced English speaking talmid who wants to grow in his Torah studies in Israel. Rabbi Meiselman has led Toras Moshe in a path that continues his family's tradition of deep analysis and broad application of Torah ideas. The Yeshiva has experienced tremendous growth. With 130 bochurim and 50 avreichim in the kollel, enrollment is at an all-time high.

Ner Michoel, the Alumni Association of Yeshivas Toras Moshe is dedicated in memory of Rabbi Michoel Weiner zt"l. A consummate talmid chochom and a man of exacting emes, Reb Michoel was a contemporary of Rabbi Moshe Meiselman shlit"a. They grew up in Boston together and maintained a mutual feeling of respect and appreciation throughout their lives.

Rabbi Michoel Weiner zt"l

A modest individual who lived his life in search of genuine truth, Reb Michoel's sterling character bespoke a true eved Hashem. He studied under Harav Yosef Dov Halevi Soloveitchik zt"l and Harav Shneur Kotler zt"l, learning to delve into a sugya with single- minded absorption.

Reb Michoel's diligence in learning was legendary; he would sit for long hours, toiling in the understanding of Torah with complete focus. His perseverance and attentiveness were evident in his ability to ferret out the fine details of each sugya. Reb Michoel's commentaries on Artscroll's Maseches Keilim and many perakim of Masechtos in the Talmud Bavli and Yerushalmi reveal the lucidity and precision of his learning. He was familiar with intricate details in the Mishna Berurah and would investigate every issue of halacha very carefully, examining sources and tracing contemporary responses. Every word of his tefilla was enunciated slowly, with fervor and passion.

Despite his seriousness of purpose and overwhelming intensity and earnestness in his avodas Hashem, Reb Michoel possessed an extraordinary sense of humor. His family was raised in a happy home, full of dveikus and ahavas Hashem. Reb Michoel's roar of laughter would inject a sense of joy in to any atmosphere. His simcha in his avodas Hashem was readily apparent especially on Yomim Tovim where he interacted with every member of his immediate family. Reb Michoel's son, Rabbi Shmuli Weiner, has been a beloved member of the Toras Moshe family for the past 25 years. The Toras Moshe Alumni Association is the brainchild of Rabbi Shmuli Weiner and Rabbi Daniel Sinowitz. It is therefore befitting that the Alumni Association is named "Ner Michoel" in memory of Rabbi Weiner's father. May the Torah that is supported by Ner Michoel be a z'chus for Rabbi Michoel Weiner zt"l.

The Ner Michoel Alumni Association of Yeshivas Toras Moshe was founded in September 2012, in Lakewood New Jersey, on the first Yahrtzeit of Rabbi Michoel Weiner zt"l. Ner Michoel was founded for the purpose perpetuating the Yeshiva's connection with its talmidim, even after they have left the walls of the Yeshiva's Bais Medrash and providing the talmidim with an opportunity to take an active role in securing the Yeshiva's future.

Since its inception Ner Michoel has produced numerous audios and publications for the benefit of the Yeshiva’s Talmidim. It has hosted numerous events and Yarchei Kallah in various cities in the United States, Canada and Eretz Yisroel.

Ner Michoel looks forward to keeping the connection between the Yeshiva and its Talmidim strong and to keeping the flame of Torah... kindled in the Yeshiva... burning brightly... everywhere... and always...
