Kollel Bet Mordechai (The Beit Mordechai Campus Kollel) is a Kollel and Bet Midrash in Johannesburg, South Africa. It is associated with Mizrachi and is based at the Yeshiva College of South Africa.

The Kollel facilitates high level as well as community learning on a daily basis.[1] Community focused activities range from individualised chavruta-based study to Public shiurim. Daf yomi is offered three times daily, with a weekly "overview" for Women; Mishnah Berurah Yomit is also offered. Advanced studies include shiurim in Talmud and Rishonim. Four Kollel members have so far received Semicha; the examination by Rabbi Yaacov Warhaftig of Machon Ariel in Jerusalem.

The Kollel is headed jointly by Rabbi Levy Wineberg [2] (also Rosh Yeshiva of the Rabbinical College of Pretoria) and Rabbi Dr. Shlomo Glicksberg, assuming the role from Rabbi Avraham Amitai [3] in September 2014. It was originally lead by Rabbi Doron Podlashuk,[4] with Rabbi Simcha Krauss as acting Rosh Kollel
