As Yeshiva Karlin Stolin Takes Trailblazing Step, ‘Raising their Rebbeim,’ Klal Yisroel Galvanizes in Support
A Citadel of Torah in Brooklyn
Yeshiva Karlin Stolin, one of Boro Park’s oldest yeshivos, has been a name synonymous with the highest level of Torah learning, steeped in the tradition of kedusha and taharah... deep authenticity and purity.
Throughout the decades, it has attracted talmidim from Brooklyn’s most prestigious homes of Torah and chassidus, selected by Roshei Yeshiva, Admorim, and Torah’dige balebatim as the mossad of choice for their children to grow into Talmidei chachomim who will be steeped in yiras Shomayim and ahavas Hashem.
Roshei Yeshiva, Talmdei Chachomim, upstanding, Torah’dige laymen, some of the greatest mekarvim in the world... and the thousands of pure Yiddishe kinderlach of the future of Klal Yisroel, have one thing in common: A chinuch in a most unique mossad haTorah which continues to valiantly adhere to the mission of its founding—no matter the winds of the time.
Raising our Rebbeim
The Rebbeim of the Yeshiva have always been role models steeped in Torah and yiras Shomayim. The memory of these rebbeim remains with the yeshiva’s talmidim for decades after they leave the yeshiva, continuing the influence long after they leave its confines.
Now, the time has come to place our rebbeim at their deserved place in our society—by showing them their worth; by raising their salaries in a meaningful manner. Stoliner yeshiva has always paid higher than most other Brooklyn mosdos—but we must do even better. We must invest in our most precious asset.
Investing in our Rebbeim; an investment in Eternity
This is an idea whose time has long since arrived.
We cannot expect our rebbeim to enter their classrooms each and every day with peace of mind —prepared to shape the future of Klal Yisroel— even as they are compensated at a rate that has not risen in decades.
Yeshiva Karlin Stolin has never been known for its affluent parent body, and this is a step that we cannot take alone. It has always been Klal Yisroel, those who appreciate Torah, Torah with fire, and steeped in a tradition of fire and joy, who have rallied to support it as it has thrived so miraculously.
The yeshiva has taken the brave step of raising every rebbi by $10,000!
Today and tomorrow (Tuesday and Wednesday), a historic campaign will take the world of chinuch by storm. “Raising our shining stars” (as the Gemoro refers to rebbeim) is Yeshiva Karlin Stolin’s foundation into a monumental commitment to raise every one of its rebbeim. Alongside this is the establishment of a rebbeim simcha fund that has already awarded tens of thousands of dollars to our rebbeim at the time of a simcha.
During this campaign to “elevate its mechanchim, raising its rebbeim,” the yeshiva will be joined by thousands in the community, its own parents and alumni, and those of other beautiful mosdos haTorah, who will support this trailblazing effort.
Together, we will impact the future of Klal Yisroel whom they will mold.
