Originally from Brooklyn, NY, Rabbi Kowalsky studied in Beth Medrash Govoha (Lakewood Yeshiva) for eight years and Yeshivas Toras Moshe – Jerusalem for four years. He joined the St. Louis Kollel in the fall of 2012 and merited to lead the Kollel’s “Torah & Turf” program for three years before transitioning to serve as Chair of the Dr J. Lester Zeffren Jewish Medical Ethics Program. His popular ongoing Sunday morning Halacha class at Agudas Israel engages participants of all levels in a lively Torah discussion. In addition to leading his fellow Kollel members in their afternoon learning session, Rabbi Kowalsky maintains numerous study sessions with members across the entire spectrum of the community. Together with his “Eishes Chayil”, Shoshana, they are the fortunate parents of four delightful young children.
