MTA’s Rabbi Hyman Arbesfeld (‘49) Z”L Scholarship Campaign was a huge success, raising more than $1 million, and exceeding the yeshiva’s fundraising goal. The campaign offered special giving opportunities for alumni and grandparents, including the MTA Alumni Circle, which enabled alumni to directly help current talmidim in need of scholarships, while staying connected with the yeshiva through unique alumni programming, and the MTA Grandparents Giving Circle, which provided grandparents with the opportunity to support the campaign and engage with the yeshiva throughout the year by receiving messages from their grandson’s rebbeim and tickets to the YUHS Annual Dinner of Tribute. All donations made throughout the campaign were matched 1:1 by a generous donor. The campaign culminated with MTA’s annual Day of Giving on May 25th – 26th. This student-run event enables talmidim to learn first-hand about philanthropy, leadership, and the importance of giving back to others. “It’s incredible to see the enthusiasm our talmidim have for supporting our yeshiva. They look forward to getting involved in this meaningful initiative every year and are vital in our efforts to ensure that the MTA experience is accessible to all talmidim in a respectful and dignified manner,” shared Head of School Rabbi Joshua Kahn. “It’s especially fitting that our talmidim play a role in our fundraising campaign as they are following in the footsteps of its namesake, Rabbi Hyman Arbesfeld (‘49) Z”L. As a scholarship recipient at MTA who had tremendous hakaras hatov to our yeshiva, Rabbi Arbesfeld was not only passionate about talmud Torah, but also strongly believed in the importance of making a Jewish education accessible to everyone. Our talmidim are excited to give back because it’s a shared value that is also instilled at home and modeled by their parents and grandparents. We have created a culture of giving at our yeshiva that extends to the entire MTA community and we are extremely grateful for the generosity of all of our families.”
