Financing yeshiva education has become an impossible burden for many families, especially those with many children. And today’s economy is causing an unforeseen hardship for families paying tuition and for the schools themselves.
Yet the bills must be paid and the yeshivot are running into financial troubles. Each yeshiva holds multiple fundraisers throughout the year to pay its bills, pay its teachers and operational costs, as well as finance the increasing number of applications for tuition assistance.
Project Education believes that the education of our community’s children should be the top priority of all community members. Charity begins at home and Tzedekah should remain within the confines of the community. Giving 10 percent of your income for tzedekah is a minimum Halachic contribution, and those who can afford to give more should.
The initiatives of Project Education are designed as a long term solution to the yeshiva education financial crisis. The organization hopes to increase the value each and every community member places on education and that community members will focus more of their giving dollars on supporting our yeshivot.
