Rabbi Druckman Becomes Keren Yahad's 5,000th Member


Keren Yahad (The Together Fund - http://kyachad.co.il/ ) passed a milestone this week, when Rabbi Haim Druckman, head of the Bnei Akiva Yeshivas Center and the Or Etzion Yeshiva, became the 5,000th person to join. Keren Yahad's purpose is to provide financial support for orphans under the age of 30 when one of their parents dies prematurely.

Rabbi Hillel Horowitz, who chairs the fund, said that "We built a program to add 5,000 people in six months and to our surprise, in less than three months we are over 5,000 households. An even greater surprise is the diversity present in the public that has joined, from Eilat in the south to the northern Golan Heights, single men and women, families, adults, seniors and people under 18."
