The yeshiva world is very delighted over the founding of the
new Uchesavtem fund, which has been warmly endorsed by
gedolei Yisroel. The purpose of the fund is to
encourage chiddushei Torah.
On the presidium of this special worldwide fund are: HaRav
Boruch Shmuel HaKohen Deutsch, one of the roshei
yeshiva of Kol Torah; HaRav Gavriel Toledano, rosh
yeshiva of Ohr Boruch; HaRav Menachem Tzvi Berlin,
rosh yeshiva of Rabbenu Chaim Ozer, and HaRav
Mordechai Gross. They were joined by HaRav Arye Malkiel
Kotler, rosh yeshiva of Lakewood, and HaRav Eliyohu
Wachtfogel, rosh yeshiva of South Fallsburg.
Recently, members of this fund visited the gedolei
haTorah in their homes. Gedolei haTorah blessed
them with success in the new endeavor, which will spur review
and study in the yeshivos.
According to the plan, pamphlets submitted by students on
subjects studied in yeshivos and kollelim will be
thoroughly reviewed by prominent talmidei chachomim.
Authors of the best pamphlets will receive generous stipends.
The first scholarship will be NIS 5000; the second: NIS 2000;
the third -- NIS 1000; while ten more awards of NIS 500 each
will also be granted.
In addition, a special publication including some of the best
articles will be published.
Last Tuesday night, explanatory material on the program was
presented in the yeshivos. Any yeshiva or kollel
interested in participating in this unique program should
call 050-897234 or write to P.O.B. 57419, Jerusalem,
