1) Furniture for English Judaica Library
We recently renovated the English Judaica library in memory of Rabbi Yaacov Rubinstein z"l, founding rabbi at the Young Israel of Scarsdale who was tragically killed.
New doors, ceilings, and air-conditioning have been completed, but we still need new furniture including tables, chairs, and computers.
A placque will be put in the library.
Cost of Project: $15,000
2) Mattresses for the Dormitories
Three hundred students, both Israeli student/soldiers and students from our Overseas Program, sleep in our dormitories at any one time.
We need new mattresses to ensure that our students get the rest they need to put in long days of Torah study.
A placque will be put up in one of the dormitories.
Cost of Project: $60,000
We will be delighted to welcome you at the Yeshiva during your next visit to Israel.
