Amazing Matching Grant Opportunity to Help Our Community Mosdos!

In honor of his 50th birthday and first wedding anniversary Reb Avraham Hayman has generously contributed $1,800 to 13 of the local Monsey Chabad Mosdos.

In addition, Reb Avraham will be providing matching grants to the 3 primary Chabad educational institutions in Monsey. All are strongly encouraged to take advantage of this unique opportunity to help these Mosdos, which are the lifeblood of our community, especially during these difficult economic times.

The following are letters from the heads of each institution which include the exact details of the matching grant offer:

This past Shabbos, Avraham Hayman announced at his birthday Farbrengen a special fund raising project in honor of his 50th Yom Holedes. To help Cheder Chabad of Monsey, he will for this week only (March 15-20) any money pledged to this Moisad. Up to $999 he will match one-for-one and any amount $1,000 or more he will match with an extra $2,000!

The amount pledged can be paid out until June 30, 2009 but either postdated checks or credit cards must be submitted this week.

In this special time between Purim and Pesach, the Rebbe emphasized so often the special importance of supporting Chinuch, especially in these difficult days and when children play such an important role to hasten Moshiach’s arrival. What a golden opportunity to participate - where your every dollar is worth double or triple!

All donations are tax deductible. Please make your check(s) payable to Cheder Chabad of Monsey - one of the pillars of the Monsey Chabad community and a flourishing institution, but under the stress of today’s economic times. Please call 845 356 1213 or 845 201 0203 to give your credit card information or email

Please include your mother’s name – to be sent to the Ohel and for the announcement each day in the Cheder of the names of the people having the z’chus of supporting that day’s learning. In the z’chus of your Tzedoka, as the Rebbe always emphasized, may we see the ultimate Geulah and the Rebbe B’rosheinu!
