Anonymous Direct Assistance Campaign To Help Families in Need
And to Keep the Operations at Kollel Yad Shaul Going

As we all know, the world has changed in the last month as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. The Kollel and some of its members need assistance.

Several regular members of the Kollel community are facing financial hardship; where possible, they have applied for external support, but they have no way of knowing if and when it will arrive. The Rav is arranging for donated funds to be directed to those in need through the Rabbi’s Discretionary Fund (RDF Tzedokoh Fund). In addition, The Kollel itself is facing critical times as we are struggling to meet the operating costs of the Beis Hamidrosh and support for the nucleus of the Kollel, the avreichim.

Kollel Yad Shaul asks that if you are fortunate enough to have financial resources available that you consider making a donation by participating in this special fund-raising drive. While all three elements are important, please put the individuals and families that have pressing needs first.

Kollel Yad Shaul is happy to facilitate that through this direct assistance campaign. Please simply click on the button below labeled “Direct Assistance to Families and Individuals in Need.” These donations will go directly to people affiliated with the KYS who have immediate needs.

You can donate in memory of a loved one, in honor of a friend or family member, or just because you want to give tzedokoh. No doubt this is a great mitzvoh to engage in at this time and will invoke some measure of Hashem’s mercy in these difficult times. No one can promise results. Besides, giving selflessly with a pure heart, intent supporting Torah, maintaining the shul’s operational costs (so that when this is behind us, KYS associates have a functioning place to come back to), or giving tzedokoh with empathy and care to sustain those in dire need (and also done in a way to preserve their dignity), will be particularly meaningful to Hashem. Giving for any reason is noble. However, contributions driven by self-interest in order to reap the physical rewards of tzedokoh is not as virtuous as when philanthropy is magnanimous, altruistic and selfless. So, when you give, focus on your motivation and make it as holy and pure as possible.

Whether you are able to share now or not, may Hashem surround us all with his cloud of protection for continued health, safety, and increased prosperity for all of us so that we may serve Him properly.

The Kollel Yad Shaul, simply known in Johannesburg as ‘’The Kollel”, has been in the forefront of strengthening and reintroducing Torah true Yiddishkeit in South Africa for over 40 years.
