The Tomchei Bochurim fund by Vaad Hatmimim ensures that no bochurim’s needs are neglected, providing for bochurim’s physical needs so they can focus on their ruchniyus needs.
When a Bochur comes to Crown Heights to spend his year learning in 770, his only concern should be coming to Seder and spending his day learning Chassidus and Nigleh in the Rebbe’s Yeshivah.
Each year hundreds of bochurim flock to Crown Heights to spend their year learning in the Rebbe’s Yeshivah. With learning being the only priority on their mind, often these Bochurim lack essential everyday items that others take for granted.
Being that many of these Bochurim don’t have who to turn to, the Vaad Hatmimim has stepped up to tackle this long-standing issue with a fund, called Tomchei Bochurim, to ensure that no bochurim are neglected. This fund provides for bochurim’s physical needs so they can focus on their ruchniyus needs.
“A Bochur needs to know he has someone to turn to,” said Rabbi Tzvi Altein, director of the Vaad Hatmimim. “For too long, 770 Bochurim have felt alone and neglected. This fund helps them, B’gashmius and B’ruchnius, and more importantly, that they know someone cares and wants to help them.”
Over the past few years, Tomchei Bochurim has provided coats and other winter essentials to hundreds of Bochurim who would otherwise not have these important necessities, as well as, Yom Tov clothing for Pesach and other essentials throughout the years.
In the coming weeks, Tomchei Bachurim will once again be distributing coupons for the purchase of hats, suits, and more at subsidized and discounted prices for Pesach.
