Vaad Hatmimim’s Tomchei Bochurim fund, which provides Israel bochurim learning in 770 with their basic needs, will for the first time also provide subsidized hats for American bochurim learning in 770.
Over the past three years, Tomchei Bochurim, a project of Vaad Talmidei Hatmimim Haolami, has provided Bochurim who come to New York to spend a year learning in the Rebbe’s presence with the most basic of physical needs. From a warm coat during the winter months, to a new hat before Yomtov, and everything in between, Keren Tomchei Bochurim puts the well-being of the Bochurim first.
The financial worry a Bochur can carry with him is often overwhelming. Imagine the peace of mind afforded to a needy Bochur when something as mundane and necessary as shampoo is taken care of.
Vaad Hatmimim is now pleased to announce that for the first time ever, new hats for Pesach at subsidized pricing will also be available for the American Bochurim learning in 770. This is just one step toward the ultimate goal of providing for Bochurim around the world.
“A Bochur needs to know he has someone to turn to,” said Rabbi Tzvi Altein, director of the Vaad Hatmimim. “The goal we had in mind when creating Tomchei Bochurim, was that every Bochur should know that there are people looking after him and caring for his needs.
