Mission of the library project
I have been learning in Yeshivas Mir Yerushalayim for a couple years.
Often, I have heard from other bochurim that they are interested in gaining a deeper connection to Yiddishkeit. These are mainstream bochurim who want to spend their free time finding answers to their questions and to expand their knowledge in areas of Torah, Hashkofa, Mussar, Chassidus, and Halacha that they are unfamiliar with. However, many bochurim find it strenuous to read these seforim in Loshon Kodesh while relaxing during their free time.
Fortunately, there are plenty of English seforim available that discuss and delve into almost every topic in Yiddishkeit. Unfortunately, however, many bochurim still cannot access this wealth of Torah knowledge due to the high cost of English seforim.
Because of this, I decided to raise the necessary funds to spearhead a free English seforim lending library for the bochurim of Yerushalayim so that they can take a couple books to their dira, or read a book during their break in a relaxed library atmosphere.
With the help of Hashem, within a few months, I exceeded my original goal of $10,000.
Despite the setback caused by Covid-19 on a physical library in Yerushalayim, I am now looking to expand the selection of titles to acquire for the library as well as to ensure the continuous operation of the library once in service.
So I am turning to you to ask if you'd like to share in this wonderful opportunity and be a sponsor of this Torah Library, which will no doubt be a tremendous zechus for you and your family.
