Our Shul

A unique community

The neighborhood of Ramat Eshkol was established following Israel’s victory in the Six Day War in 1967. In the year 2000, Americans started moving to Ramat Eshkol, as the neighboring areas of Maalot Dafna and Arzei Habira had started to overflow.

Since then, there has been a virtual population explosion of the American community in Ramat Eshkol. Hundreds of young couples move here to begin their married lives in Eretz Yisrael.

However, the nature of such a community of bnei chutz la’aretz is a very transient one, and most couples leave after just a few years. It has been very difficult for this large and thriving community to integrate into Israeli society. Such a community needs their own Rav, their own shul, and their own infrastructure to help cater to its very specific needs.

Khal Zichron Nosson Tzvi: Filling the gap

It was with this in mind that Mendy Schechter established Khal Zichron Nosson Tzvi (ZNT) and became its founder and first president. What began as a fledgling minyan in the beginning of the winter of 2012 has now evolved into a full-fledged shul that is filled to capacity every Shabbos.

Thanks to their venerable Rav, Rabbi Shmuel Weiner, shlita, Khal Zichron Nosson Tzvi has become an integral component of this neighborhood. It has literally changed the face of the wider Ramat Eshkol community. The shul creates the strong sense of community that the neighborhood sorely lacked.

Its success is drawn from a combination of an uplifting davening, a variety of dynamic shiurim in English and an innovative program for the N’shei. Those who have had the pleasure to experience a Shabbos there understand why Khal Zichron Nosson Tzvi has become such a valuable asset to our community.
