Askonim Surprise Attendees At Lakewood Cheder Pre-Dinner Meeting, With Unusual Announcement

cheder meet(PHOTOS) At a pre-Dinner meeting for the Lakewood Cheder last night, honoree R’ Aharon Stefansky, who hosted the event, R’ Itche Rosenbaum, and R’ Mordy Schron surprised the attendees with an unusual announcement. “Any money pledged or raised by the Lakewood Cheder/Bais Faiga parent body from now until the Dinner will be matched, raised or donated, dollar for dollar, by the Vaad Hacheder together with the honorees. The matching offer has a cap of $500,000 and will be in effect until the Dinner.”

“That figure is impressive, and it is also realistically attainable,” says Moshe Dovid Perlstein, one of the campaign coordinators. With a combined parent and grandparent body exceeding 5,000, the number can be well within reach. With the positive energy infused in the current campaign, reaching our goal of $500,000 is a strong likelihood.”

The pledge has to be made before the Dinner.

  1. wheres all the great commentators all of a sudden no where to be found not one comment about the cheder yet who cares about spelling food etc…………

  2. This is a typical trick to get people to give money. Its a great Mossad but stop trying to use gimmicks to get people to give money. Many people are struggling and can’t afford big donations at this time. If these Honorees can let them just give it whether the people can match it or not.
