After the vast success of the “Yissachar and Zevulun Project”, which rewards 770 bochurim for diligent study, over the previous year, the program was relaunched for the new yeshiva year.
Over 200 Israeli bochurim were tested on the material they learned during the month of Cheshvan, with those who passed receiving financial incentives.
The “Yissachar and Zevulun Project” was first launched by Iggud Talmidei Hakvutza at the start of last year. The project encourages bochurim studying in 770 as part of kvutzah to make full use of their year by keeping seder and learning diligently, while granting them stipends to cover the costs for their needs. At the conclusion of each month, the bochurim were tested on their studies and those who received high marks were granted a generous stipend, prominently distributed in 770.
“This project is revolutionary and the first of its kind,” organizers said. “Baruch Hashem, there is a wide participation among the kvutzah and you can really feel the difference the project makes when walking into 770 during any seder.”
Over 200 bochurim are part of the program, which has tracks for the study of Gemara, Halacha and Chassidus. Each bochur must choose at least one of the program’s 4 tracks, completing the entire Mesachta Shabbos, the first and third volume of the Alter Rebbe’s Shulchan Aruch, the Rebbe Rashab’s hemshech of Samach Vov, or Likkutei Sichos Geula Umoshiach by the end of the year.
At the conclusion of each month, the bochurim are tested, and those who receive high marks are granted a generous stipend, prominently distributed in 770.
