Our mosdos have such a difficult time promoting themselves, running dinners and campaigns, while penning articles about themselves and how great and unparalleled they are.
To assist our heilige mosdos, this writer spent considerable time creating a template that can now be used by any mosad of chinuch and that can be adapted for organizations of chesed.
This template will be a game-changer in the world of fundraising, because in just a few moments, one’s mosad can have a beautiful article written about the institution. Just fill in the blanks.
Obviously, it is vital that such an article contain the phrases “tutelage,” “fostered,” “cohesively,” “interaction,” “uncompromising excellence,” “cutting-edge,” “pilpul chaveirim” and “fullest potential,” which we’ve successfully incorporated here.
Yeshiva [Enter Name Here] Annual
Celebrates [XX] Years of Growth
Text of Article:
The annual parlor meeting to benefit [Enter Name of Yeshiva], led by [Enter Name of Rosh Yeshiva], was held on Thursday, March 21, at the home of [Name of Host] on [Name of Street].
Yeshiva [Enter Name Here] was founded [XX] years ago by Rav [XXXX] and has earned a name as one of the premier mekomos haTorah in [Name of City].
The student body of the yeshiva is made up of bochurim from across North America, hailing from as far away as Baltimore, Boro Park and South Lakewood, flocking to the yeshiva for the opportunity to grow and shteig in this phenomenal makom Torah.
The hanhallah members of [Yeshiva XXXX] are renowned for their ability to reach each talmid on his level and bring out his potential. They have fostered an atmosphere in which the yeshiva caters to each individual bochur. There are strong expectations of excellence from every bochur, and each talmid is extremely motivated to respond in kind by constantly learning and improving in Torah and avodas Hashem.
Since joining [Yeshiva XXX], many talmidim have reached levels they never before imagined they could reach as a result of the urging and encouragement of their rabbeim, and the pilpul chaveirim and achdus, with the talmidim all cohesively working towards a united goal.
In addition to their excelling in learning, the bochurim are also distinguishable for their wonderful middos, which are evident from their interactions with each other and with any visitors to the yeshiva.
After several years of learning at [Yeshiva XXX], the final products are bochurim who stand out for their devotion to learning, Torah aptitude, sense of achrayus, and exceptional character traits.
After completing their time in the yeshiva, the bochurim continue their aliyah at some of the most prominent and prestigious yeshivos in Eretz Yisroel, where they are recognized for their outstanding hasmadah, amkus and middos tovos.
Drivers passing the yeshiva campus may have noticed in recent months a dramatic change of pace in the construction at the site. Slated for completion this coming year, the state-of-the-art campus represents the fulfillment of [Yeshiva XXX’s] unique chinuch vision, building on its successful track record. In true [Yeshiva XXX] tradition, the features of the [XXX]-square-foot yeshiva building raise the bar and set the tone for utilizing every possible resource to optimize the learning experience for each and every talmid.
It’s hard to believe that not that long ago, [Yeshiva XXX’s] parents, grandparents and friends, as well as roshei yeshiva and many rabbonim, stood at the vacant site laying the even hapinah. Indeed, it is truly remarkable how quickly the construction has moved along. The fact that the building has progressed so quickly, be’ezras Hashem, is a tribute to the meticulous planning and implementation of the project.
Virtually every facet of the campus has been thoughtfully designed to serve as a physical bricks-and-mortar vessel that will facilitate the uncompromising excellence and cutting-edge resources of the [Yeshiva XXX] chinuch model. It is the fulfillment of a vision conceived, cultivated and nurtured over the past [XX] years under the tutelage of [Yeshiva XXX’s] founder, Rabbi [Enter Name Here]. The yeshiva’s pioneering approach to chinuch recognizes the individuality and the unique strengths of each talmid, providing whatever resources are needed to enhance, enrich and realize those strengths to their fullest potential.
The building’s interior will house bright and airy classrooms and the very latest resources and amenities. The building will also contain a beautifully appointed bais medrash, a spacious dining hall, and an [XXXX]-square-foot gym.
A Campus Completion Campaign has been launched, in collaboration with parents, grandparents and friends of the yeshiva who wish to earn the special zechus of bringing the building to its successful completion.
“So far,” says the executive director, Rabbi [Enter Name Here], “the response has been extremely heartwarming. To quote one grandparent, ‘When you see such an edifice standing in front of you – no longer just a dream, but a physical reality – you know that this building will be a game-changer in contemporary chinuch and a trendsetter and a standard bearer for what a mosad hachinuch should look like. It is something I really want to be part of.’”
The campaign is a special opportunity to become an eternal partner in the unique chinuch model that is [Yeshiva XXX], an endeavor that will continue to generate perpetual zechusim for the visionaries who invest in its creation.
“Even as we grow, we work hard to maintain that kesher between each student and the rebbi, and each student and the menahel, as well as the parents with each one of us,” stressed the menahel, Rabbi [Enter Name Here]. “To us, when there’s that high level of engagement with each talmid, and each one feels a special relationship, we know that we are achieving our goal.”
