After burglary, Lakewood’s Yesodei Hatorah launches Chanukah campaign to help them get back on their feet

[COMMUNICATED] It’s been nearly two years since the renowned melamed, Rebbi Yoel Rother’s vision came to fruition. Yesodei Hatorah – the name says it all. The foundation of a Talmid. That’s Rebbi Rother’s vision and that is what you find. It’s a Talmud Torah that infuses its Talmidim with a Geshmak towards Yiddishkeit. A Talmud Torah where every Talmid is a shining star and an asset to the classroom. The Melamdim are hand picked by Rebbi Rother to ensure that the Talmidim receive the most amazing education and of course, the warmth they all deserve.

The Talmud Torah’s financial situation has had its ups and downs. To make things tougher, a recent burglary in the cheder building has landed a big blow to the current situation.

As Chanukah approaches, we ask that you please open your hearts to help us keep the light of Torah burning.

In this merit, may you be Zoche to בני חיי ומזוני and to be blessed with much health, wealth and happiness.

  1. There has been much confusion about this. Please clarify that this is NOT Rabbi Treff’s yeshiva Gedolah with the same name–Yeshiva Yesodei HaTorah.
