MTA’s Arbesfeld Scholarship Campaign Raises Over $1 Million

(Courtesy of MTA) MTA’s Rabbi Hyman Arbesfeld (’49), z”l, Scholarship Campaign was a huge success, raising more than $1 million, and exceeding the yeshiva’s fundraising goal. The campaign offered special giving opportunities for alumni and grandparents. The MTA Alumni Circle enabled alumni to directly help current talmidim in need of scholarships, while staying connected with the yeshiva through unique alumni programming. In addition, the MTA Grandparents Giving Circle provided grandparents with the opportunity to support the campaign and engage with the yeshiva throughout the year by receiving messages from their grandsons’ rebbeim and tickets to the YUHS Annual Dinner of Tribute. All donations made throughout the campaign were matched 1:1 by a generous donor.

The campaign culminated with MTA’s annual Day of Giving, May 25-26. This student-run event enables talmidim to learn firsthand about philanthropy, leadership and the importance of giving back to others,” said Head of School Rabbi Joshua Kahn. “It’s incredible to see the enthusiasm our talmidim have for supporting our yeshiva. They look forward to getting involved in this meaningful initiative every year and are vital in our efforts to ensure that the MTA experience is accessible to all talmidim in a respectful and dignified manner.

“It’s especially fitting that our talmidim play a role in our fundraising campaign as they are following in the footsteps of its namesake, Rabbi Hyman Arbesfeld (’49), z”l,” Rabbi Kahn continued. “As a scholarship recipient at MTA who had tremendous hakaras hatov to our yeshiva, Rabbi Arbesfeld was not only passionate about talmud Torah, but also strongly believed in the importance of making a Jewish education accessible to everyone. Our talmidim are excited to give back because it’s a shared value that is also instilled at home and modeled by their parents and grandparents. We have created a culture of giving at our yeshiva that extends to the entire MTA community and we are extremely grateful for the generosity of all of our families.”
