Ezras Torah Funds
Ezras Torah presently has 1,297 donors who have established personalized loan funds or endowment funds with
us. The income of these personalized funds are dedicated to the support of Ezras Torah's programs for
Emergency Medical Needs, Interest Free Loans, and Hachnosas Choson V'Kallah. Named individual
loan funds can be started with a pledge of $1,000 or more. These named funds are usually made in ones own merit
or in memory of a departed loved one.
Wills and Legacies
Over the past several years Ezras Torah has become the beneficiary of over $4,498,771 from wills and legacies.
The funds realized from these bequests were allocated to Ezras Torah's general distributions and Ezras Torah's
Endowment Fund according to the expressed desire of the benefactor. It is known that making a charitable
bequest in a will brings special merit for a long life.
Ezras Torah's financial aid reaches out just under 7,500 Torah families per year. Ezras Torah's Hachnosas Choson
V'Kallah Fund distributed $44,930 assisting 299 couples this year many of whom were orphans. The medical
assistance program distributed $421,898 helping 2,235 families meet urgent medical expenses. Interest Free
Loans were extended to 511 families totaling $1,145,985. Special Yom
Tov funds were granted to 4,353 Kolel families, widows and orphans before Pesach and the High Holiday Season
totaling $401,052. The total grant distribution made in the calendar year 2016 was $958,256. Ninety four percent
was sent to bring relief to the poor in Eretz Yisroel while six percent brought relief to the poor in the U.S.
The poor and needy are constantly turning to us. PLEASE HELP!
