“The doors of Shalsheles will stay open till Mashiach comes”

Those we’re the famous words of R’ Pam Zatzal

But how can it remain open when the teachers haven’t gotten paid since January??

After the Iron Curtain fell, and tens of thousands of Russian Jews swarmed to New York, the Moetzes Gedolei Torah established yeshivos and schools for the tinokos shenishbu, the innocent children, victims of the Stalinist regime. Over the years, many of these schools have closed down due to lack of funds. Remarkably, Shalsheles Bais Yaakov is still thriving. 

Shalsheles Bais Yaakov is an elementary and High school that primarily caters to the Russian population. Shalsheles is not just a school; Shalsheles is a family, a place where everyone feels at home. The love, acceptance and warmth of the principals and teachers permeate the air. That energy and the growth of every girl is what inspires the teachers to keep coming back, despite the fact that the teachers haven’t gotten paid in months.

 

 Shalsheles serves as a home away from home for dozens of pure, good-hearted Jewish girls who want to learn and grow, to do mitzvos and become closer to Hashem. The school is a family,  with the teachers and dedicated principals treating every student like their own daughter. In fact, before every Yom Tov the staff ensures that each Shalsheles child has a place to spend the Yom Tov , and will often invite students to their homes. Shalsheles is not simply another school, but a place the girls call “home.” It’s the place where they feel loved, comfortable, and secure. For many girls, it is the only loving, secure environment in their lives. As related by a visitor to the school, “As soon as we entered the school building, a powerful, sing-song chant reached our ears. It was the glorious sound of little girls singing together, learning together, absorbing the sunshine that permeates every corner of Shalsheles. A peek through the classroom windows highlighted their cherubic smiles. The girls appeared to be typical Bais Yaakov students, who had been frum their entire lives. If we hadn’t been told, we couldn’t have imagined that most of them come from non-religious homes, and had never heard of Modeh Ani until this year.” 

 

The tuition at Shalsheles is minimal, and is received from three sources: the parents give a token amount, Nechomas Yisroel supplies a minimal sum, via their sponsor program, and the rest is raised through donations from goodhearted donors who realize how vital this school is to Klal Yisroel. Shalsheles is proud of its graduates, many of whom have married distinguished bnei Torah and built solid Jewish families.

                         

                The students’ desire to grow and become great is what gives the teachers the drive to continue on. Yet, its August. The school year is through and another year about to begin. BUT  the teachers haven't gotten paid since January.  Teachers are dependent on this income to survive for the basic living expenses a family has; rents, tuitions, food, utilities, etc. Personal loans are being taken in order to put food on these tables. 

    

 

             Shalsheles is a necessity for these young Jewish immigrant children, the future mother's of klal yisroel.Please help them! By supporting us, the teachers will be able to continue teaching and give them the proper guidance to take on their important role as Bnos Yisroel. 

 

How can Shalsheles open it’s doors, when they are a half a year behind?

 

We need you to make that happen. 

We appeal to you! Please help Shalsheles return an entire generation of lost Jewish souls to their Heavenly Father!
