Yeshivat Sderot – A Pillar Of Inspiration & Strength

Kiryat Gat branch of Yeshiva Evacuated to…Sderot!

The Sderot Hesder Yeshiva continues to be a beacon of inspiration even during Operation Pillar of Smoke. The investment of our donors and the State of Israel in armored buildings at the main campus in Sderot allows us to be a source of strength, inspiration and assistance to the entire region:

* Yeshiva students visit, help and cheer up local families,

* Yeshiva students serve as active volunteers in Sderot’s local emergency first response teams,

* The Pensioner’s Kollel is expanding its activities, providing Torah classes and a hot meal for Sderot’s senior citizens,

* Soldiers stationed in the area are treated to surprise solidarity visits and “care” packages,

* Torah study has been boosted in the Yeshiva, going on around the clock 24/7 in shifts in solidarity with the IDF and residents of the South.

This is all going on while many of our Rabbis, Kollel men and students have been drafted into emergency IDF service!

The Sderot Yeshiva satellite branch in Kiryat Gat – Yeshivat Derech Chayim – is located in ramshackle huts with no bomb shelters. It was therefore decided to move them to the “eye of the storm” – to our main campus in Sderot where all the buildings are armored!

The answer to terrorism is continued construction – building the Torah, strengthening Am Yisrael and our faith and trust in Hashem and building bridges to the entire State of Israel by active participation in all official bodies and efforts to defend Eretz Yisrael.

We have turned to the public for financial support at this time. Donors to the Yeshiva have included Irving Moskowitz & Cherna Moskowitz.

Any amount will help us a lot – whether it is a token participation in our emergency activities or a dedication of one of our urgent armored building projects:

1) Our satellite branch “Lev LaDaat” in Sderot has an armored dormitory – but no armored Study Hall – this is our most immediate and urgent project.

2) Another armored dormitory building is needed at our main campus.

3) Our Satellite branch “Derech Chayim” in Kiryat Gat is in need of an entire armored campus – starting with a dormitory building.

This is in addition to two other important projects to strengthen the spirit and body – The Sderot Heritage Center and the yeshiva’s Sderot Sports Center.
