Almost immediately after Masmid Govoha kicked off their Sefer Torah Raffle Campaign, every single Chumash and Parshah was sold out. The speed at which the parshiyos were bought is a testament to how highly the 30,000 talmidim who have benefited from the program value Masmid Govoha. But a study of the sponsors so far shows that psukim are being reserved not only by current and former “talmidim” and their parents, but that Klal Yisrael as a whole has jumped onto the Masmid Govoha bandwagon.
Until Shavuos, just $75 will entitle a buyer to one raffle ticket, and three psukim will be written in the purchaser’s zechus as well. After Shavuos the price will go up to $108 a ticket. While chumashim and parshiyos are all reserved, many psukim are still available, so the opportunity for anyone to win a Sefer Torah is still readily available!
One sponsor will win the Sefer Torah, plus $1,000 towards a Hachnosas Sefer Torah. Yet all contributors will have the zechus of supporting a program that benefits talmidim in dozens of Yeshivos across the United States, with over 90% of the boys increasing their learning at least 10-15 minutes a day!
The winner will be chosen on Erev Yom Kippur, so that a Hachnosas Sefer Torah before Simchas Torah will be possible. For more details please visit MasmidGovoha.org or email [email protected] or [email protected].

Go Usher Go!! You CAN do it.
It would have been better to allow one ticket per passuk purchased. Not everyone can afford $75. Being more inclusive means even one who purchases a single passuk can be entered into the raffle.
