Reach out to a friend and help a family in need.

American born parents raised a beautiful family of 13 children in Ramot, Jerusalem.
Recently, 5 of their children were captured and violated on their way back from school. The culprits were non – Jews.
The children are now safe but have ever since have undergone major trauma. They barely speak, they yell in the middle of the night, and can no longer function in a regular school setting. child
They had to receive much therapy, private tutoring and the family also had to move to another
The father is a teacher in the Mirrer Yeshiva in Jerusalem and even before the crisis, the family
was struggling to make ends meet. The sudden move and the needed private assistance for
their children is an overbearing financial strain on the family.
The parents are said to be on the verge of a mental breakdown as they simply don’t have the
means to pay for this private assistance which they still very much need to pay for.
Ezras Achim ( and Rabbi Asher Arieli (Rosh Yeshiva of Mirrer Yeshiva) are personally involved with this case.

  • Learn with them a Torah insight on whatever topic for whatever amount of time, even for 1 minute.
  • Have the person you learned with send a written review of what you learned about in their own words to [email protected]. The review can be as long or short as they like.

Our brothers in need cry out to us for help, our hearts cry for the thousands of Jews disconnected from Torah and Judaism. Partnering with Learning 2 Give can help us answer these calls.

Charity Touches the Heart of Every Jew.

Tapping into their innate desire to give, Learning 2 Give joins Jews of all affiliations closer to Torah by linking their learning with charity sponsors.

Bonding the worldwide Jewish community through Torah and Tzedakah, L2G’s network has the power to unite Jews, raise money for charity and reduce assimilation. Learning Torah becomes the catalyst for a donation to a worthy cause and giving Tzedaka fuels the desire to learn and grow.

L2G offers unique opportunities to both sponsors and those seeking to have charity donated on behalf of their Torah learning.

  • Torah shiurim can become tzedakah and kiruv opportunities by inviting sponsors to pledge specific amounts per attendee to be donated to the organization of choice.
  • Torah learners can also offer their learning goal to be picked up by sponsors and sponsors can offer pledge amounts for anyone willing to undertake specific learning goals.
  • Friend learning together can connect and share their learning with a fellow Jew next door or across the globe to give to a Charity they all want to help.
  • There are also opportunities available for those without internet access to join this tremendous cause.

Any Jew, anywhere, at any time can achieve the dual goal of learning to give.

Our brothers in need cry out to us for help, our hearts cry for the thousands of Jews disconnected from Torah and Judaism. Partnering with Learning 2 Give can help us answer these calls. Thousands of dollars have already been raised for charity and numerous Jewish souls have been touched by the power of Torah and Tzedakah through the L2G program.

Our work is only just beginning. We need your help to develop our program to its full potential and thereby help other Jews realize theirs. Please donate generously by visiting

If you may be interested in potentially becoming a founding partner of Learning 2 Give and would like to get to know more about our history, program, and plan, please call 646 897 6776 or email [email protected]

We would love the chance to present it to you.
