Located in the heart of Jerusalem, Mayanot Institute of Jewish Studies has played a central role in the lives of thousands of college-age men and women who come to Israel to explore their Jewish identities in a warm and welcoming environment.
Mayanot is pleased to announce their new Financial/Administration Center, which will be dedicated right after Purim this year.
The new center has been made possible due to a generous contribution by David and Eda Schottenstein of Columbus, Ohio and will be dedicated in memory of Rabbi Gavriel and Rivka Holtzberg, HY”D, and the Mumbai Kedoshim, whose precious lives were tragically lost in last year’s terrorist attack in India.
“The Financial/Administration Center will be established in order to consolidate Mayanot’s resources as it continually expands each year,” explained Rabbi Kasriel Shemtov, the executive director.
“This new facility will ensure that thousands more young Jewish men and women will have the opportunity to study Torah and explore their rich heritage, with the encouragement of experienced and attentive staff at this wonderful and necessary institution.”
“We all feel the painful tragedy,” said Rabbi Shlomo Gestetner, Dean of the Mayanot Institute of Jewish Studies, “we must respond with renewed energy to do more to spread the light of Torah and Chasidus.
“The new Financial/Admin Center will give us the resources to expand in a real way. We are grateful to our partners David and Eda Schottenstein, who are dedicated with all their heart to the Rebbe’s Shlichus and focused on ensuring that we are in the position to impact the future of the Jewish People on a global scale.”
