    Gevaldik! but maybe we can expand this fund to help Shluchim who are not in the online school but are expected to pay FULL tuition for each of their children by all the Mosdos around the world?. Some Shluchim that I know don’t have two dimes to their name but are paying full full tuition without receiving the local breaks that many of the local parents enjoy! I know of some who are paying close to 60,000 annually to send their kids to Yeshivas out of town!

    Thank you! Thank you!

    Thank you! Thank you!

    This year with 3 of our older children in Yeshiva (no breaks for Tuition for them) and two children on the Online School with a third not being able to afford to go online school. This is great news.
    Looking forward to putting our third child into Online School. Our 2 children are gaining both spiritually and physically on the Online School, it is the best outreach for our own children.
    Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

    amazing!

    As a Shliach with no other alternative we were blessed to have such a wonderful mosad with quality chinuch available for our children. However a few years back I was forced to call the office administration and request a scholarship due to financial circumstances and heartbroken to hear the reply, “don’t register your child for all the classes if you cannot afford to pay for them all, sign him up for as many as you can pay for”. I understand local mosdos make as big an effort to accommodate all financial situations however this was my “local mossad” living in… Read more »

    The Shluchim Office is doing something tremendous to help shluchim worldwide with one of the greatest challenges: the chinuch of their children. With great dedication, the school is providing a terrific chinuch for hundreds of yaldei hashluchim right in their own homes. Many thanks Rabbis Shemtov, Mrs Rosenfeld and the whole shluchim office team, including tech support…and all the amazing teachers …Der Aibishter zol rich bentchen!

    This is, of course a wonderful help for our wonderful shluchim. But, now that the kids are are in out-of-town yeshivahs, dorming, the cost is prohibitive. Schar limud, flying the kids home two or three times a year, takes a toll on our shluchim. Parents help as much as they can, but the need obviously is far beyond most people’s capabilities. A fund to meet this situation is badly needed,and would allow our shluchim peace of mind, knowing help is available to them to help meet the heavy cost of educating their kinderlach. They surely deserve it!

    There happens to be a great Mesivta in Tzfas that gives children of Shluchim a huge break on tuition – a full year (including dorming) for only $1800 – no other qualifications necessary, other than being a shliach. The cost for Anash is $8000 a year, which is far less than many other yeshivos out there.

    A very satisfied Shliach/parent

    Many thanks to the Shluchim Office

    Years ago, at a kinus hashluchos, when we would sit down with a friend on shlichus in remote locations and ask ‘ how is shlichus?’, the next question would then be, ‘ and how is chinuch?’ The answer was often a huge sigh or ‘ don’t ask… this is the biggest challenge…’ BH, the Shluchim Office have changed that! Now, wherever you are on shlichus, your kids can enjoy and amazing chinuch with excellent teachers.. and classmates who live lives similar to their own. This is the only school that begins at 3 am!( NY time) There are no words… Read more »

    The problem is that all students on the on line school feel that they need a break or free tuition and they are probably right. It would drain the school. Other schools have a mix of students, some can pay full tuition, some partial. It is amazing that the shluchim office is looking for ways to help as opposed to the other mosdos who charge the shluchim full tuition and do not take into concideration all the additional cost like flights and having children away from home.

    YAsher Koach to the wonderful people at the Shluchim Office-Moshe Shemtov and the whole team. A very special thank you to Moshe Pinson for really caring about shluchim’s financial drain and often going way “out of the box” to help shluchim. A special YAsher Koach to Ben Federman for getting involved and helping the struggling American shluchim.
