A new program from kvutzah bochurim is encouraging them to make full use of their year in 770, while granting them stipends to cover the costs for their needs.
The program was organized by Igud Talmidei Hakvutzah, the organazation that created the quarantine campus for the students arriving from Eretz Yisroel back in Elul.
Even after the bochurim arrived in Crown Heights and as the months go by, the organization continued to create programs for the “kvutzah” – the yearly group of bochurim from Eretz Yisroel who travel to spend the year learning in 770.
In Cheshvan, the organizers launched the ‘Yissochor and Zevulon’ project, which encourages the bochurim to use out all their time for studying, and in return, supplying them with stipends to assure they do not have to worry about any of their physical needs.
Over 200 bochurim have joined the program, which has tracks for the study of Gemara, Halacha and Chassidus. The goal is that all those participating will have completed the entire Bava Metziah, the first volume of the Alter Rebbe’s Shulchan Aruch, and the Rebbe Rashab’s hemshech of Samach Vov 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.
