Rabbi Yitzchok Kolsky

Rabbi Kolsky, a graduate of the Rabbinical Seminary of America and an educator par excellence with decades of experience under his belt, masterfully relates millenia-old Biblical verses and Talmudic concepts to today’s middle schoolers. Students look forward to his classes as an opportunity to challenge and stimulate their intellectual growth in a fun and meaningful way.

Rabbi Kolsky has been part of the Torah Academy family since its inception back in 2009, and we’re grateful to have him on our staff!


One of the more famous methods that Rabbi Kolsky uses to teach his students is by enacting live demonstrations or hands-on assembly.

Students have enjoyed building their own loom, threshing wheat, and combing and spinning raw wool to better understand the laws of Shabbos.
