Members of three Chabad Kollels in New York will be receiving a bonus to help them with Pesach expenses.
The gift was donated by Crown Heights philanthropist R’ Sholom Ber Drizin, who has generously donated the annual Kollel Pesach bonus for over a decade.
Kollels receiving the bonus will be Kollel Menachem of Crown Heights, under the leadership of Harav Yosef Heller, Upper East Side Kollel of Manhattan, and the Midtown Manhattan Chabad Kollel.
Many Kollel members, who receive only a modest monthly stipend, can just cover their monthly expenses on a regular month. For those young couples, the Pesach gift is a lifeline, helping them cover the many expenses that come with the Yom Tov.
Distributing the checks to the Kollels will be Rabbi Noach Fox, gabbai of the Kollel shul, and Crown Heights activist R’ Eli Slavin.
