Sponsor Learning in the Kollel
Our Rabbis teach that there is enormous power and merit associated with supporting Torah learning. As such, please consider sponsoring a night, a week or a month of learning in the Kollel. You may sponsor in memory, or for a speedy recovery, or in honor of a loved one or friend. In addition to the great merit of supporting Torah in our community, your sponsorship will be marked with printed pages noting the intent of your support that are placed in stands on the tables in the sanctuary for the duration of your sponsorship period.
Here are the costs for the various sponsorships:
A night of learning – $52
A week of learning – $100
A month of learning – $400

Thank you in advance for your support!
