Verified campaign
Campaigns bearing the verified badge have submitted documents testifying legitimacy of their cause. The Chesed Fund has vetted these documents as authentic.

My name is Sara and I am a single mother of six beautiful children.

Seven years ago, when my oldest boy was having difficulties in elementary school, and subsequently wasn't accepted into any yeshiva ketana, I did the unthinkable and started a yeshiva for my son, and boys like him, who are falling through the cracks of the mainstream system.

The alternative to opening a school was watching my son deteriorate and turn to the streets like so many boys each and every one of us knows. And there was no way in the world I was prepared to let that happen.

I started the Yeshiva with a vision to help my son and other boys before it is too late. I wanted to create a place where they feel accepted and respected so they don't need to turn to the streets for validation and recognition.

The goal of the yeshiva is not to solve the crisis. Our goal is to prevent it before it even begins!!

B"H the yeshiva with its incredible dedicated staff are very successful in rehabilitating so many boys, building their confidence, expanding their knowledge in many subjects, and most importantly, keeping them off the streets.

The Yeshiva, which provides a dormitory for the out of town boys, currently has close to 40 boys who are divided into four classes. Every boy has a mentor who learns with him on a daily basis and ensures that he keeps up with the curriculum. The yeshiva offers many prizes and incentives as well as fun extra curricular activities to keep the boys feeling motivated and fulfilled.

Many boys have gone on to receive a higher education, and many are already holding down good, stable, well paying jobs, which is the key to being a responsible functioning adult in todays society.

But all this has come at a tremendous cost.   

The current monthly budget of the Yeshiva is over 150,000 shekel a month, of which very little is subsidized or covered by tuition.

Despite the tuition the parents pay and the fundraising I, as well as other staff members do throughput the years, the deficit of running the yeshiva is always way above the income.

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WAS I WILLING TO CLOSE THE YESHIVA FOR LACK OF FUNDS. I WAS ALSO NOT WILLING TO TURN AWAY A BOY WHO COULDN'T AFFORD THE TUITION.

As of now, I have $50,000 in loans on my shoulders, in addition to the regular cost of running the yeshiva on a day to day basis. I am working and fundraising, but still struggling to pay for all the past and current expenses the yeshiva has.

Now I have no choice but to turn to you and ask for your generous help.

I can not manage this burden alone any longer. I feel like I'm in a maelstrom of debt. I spend many nights awake, worrying how to cover the budget, and spend most of the month borrowing from one to pay back another just to keep this yeshiva running smoothly on a monthly basis.

Life as a single mother is tough enough, and travelling the world fundraising for the yeshiva is taking a toll on myself and my children, as well as affecting my regular job.

Please ease my burden and help me raise the necessary funds needed to cover the loans I undertook to cover the yeshiva deficit so that I can live my life without the constant added stress and worries of debt I have every single day of the month, every single month of the year.

My goal is to raise as much as possible so that in addition to the deficit I hope will be covered, there will be enough to assist in ensuring that the yeshiva will continue functioning at its' maximum capacity.

In the merit of your kindness and generosity in helping me, and the tremendous zechus of keeping the yeshiva open and saving Jewish lives, may you be blessed with a joyful healthy life and everlasting nachas from your entire family.

Please forward this cause in social media - email, watsapp, facebook, instagram... the more publicity this gets the more successful this campaign will be.

With heartfelt gratitude,

Sara K.
