Ma’alin Ba’Kodesh - Conquering Corona
We hope that this letter finds you and your family in good health. I know that I am not the only person who finds themselves at a loss as to how to process what we are going through. I am reminded of the final words we declare during the Neilah Service of Yom Kippur, “Hashem – only He is G-d!”.
I am happy to report that all our 500 students will be physically returning to our campuses in Elon Moreh and Tapuach with modifications based on Ministry of Health guidelines.
We do not know the full financial impact that the Coronavirus will have on our institutions. The combination of reduced government funding due to the lack of a national government coupled with a pandemic place us in a situation that we have not faced before. We anticipate that we will see an increase of at least $25,000 in expenses related to increased expenses related to increase in products that we will need to use for cleaning, disinfecting, moving to disposables, and physical modifications that we’ve had to make.
These are unprecedented times. If you are not able to help us at this time, we certainly understand. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your families. May Hashem reward your kindness with His.
Please join us as we continue with our mission of expanding Torat Eretz Yisrael and Yishuv Ha’aretz in the foothills of Har Eival and Har Grizim, the land where the story of the Jewish people began, Elon Moreh.
Ma’alin Ba’Kodesh – together we will conquer corona!
