Throughout this past year, 200 Israeli bochurim who learned in 770 as part of ‘kvutzah’ collectively received over $250k in cash prizes.
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.
The final exam, taken during the days of Selichos, covered all the material that they learned during the past year.
The talmidim were tested on the entire Bava Metziah, the first volume of the Alter Rebbe’s Shulchan Aruch, and the Rebbe Rashab’s hemshech of Samach Vov. The students demonstrated a great deal of knowledge and it is evident that they invested great effort in their studies. Those who passed received cash prizes.
The test and incentives were part of the “Yissachar and Zevulun Project” launched by Iggud Talmidei Hakvutza at the start of 5781. The project encourages them to make full use of their year in 770 by keeping seder and learning diligently while granting them stipends to cover the costs for their needs.
Organizers were very proud of the success of the program and are planning to expand it in the coming year. “Baruch Hashem, there was a wide participation among the kvutzah and you can really feel the difference the project has made,” they said.
