Dear Fellow Brothers,

Can you imagine having a bright child who must attend public school due to lack of social skills and behavioral challenges. In the frum world, everyone knows that sending our children to Yeshiva is of prime importance. Unfortunately, there is a growing population within our community that has been unable to maintain this standard of chinuch for their own children. Most of these children are with an above average intelligence and with an overwhelmingly promising potential! However, these children suffer from social and emotional challenges, for whom our yeshivahs are unequipped to service. Thus denying them a chance to be part of Kal Yisroel. They have been accepted by the public school system with open arms. Gesher HaChaim is answering the cry of the parents of Yiddishe Neshomos who spent years languishing in public schools while their neighbors were raising beautiful families Al Pi Torah.

Gesher HaChaim was founded in September 2017 by parents who wanted to give their beloved children a Torah education and a place to be part of Klal Yisroel. Gesher HaChaim is a yeshiva setting where these precious Neshomos have a place where they can grow in their yiddishkeit. The children feel a sense of belonging and have the opportunity to thrive as Bnei and Bnos Torah in an environment conducive to their strengths and abilities.

Gesher HaChaim’s student body includes children from a variety of chassidish, litvish, and sefardish backgrounds. In the short time since Gesher Hachaim has opened its doors, the children have been making tremendous strides. Their parents are thrilled to see them coming home with Divrei Torah, Halacha and Hashkafa, just like their siblings in the mainstream yeshiva system. This is something that seemed unrealistic before Gesher HaChaim. The children are proud to be in yeshiva like their siblings and peers. In her first month in Gesher HaChaim, one child commented on Simchas Torah, “Mommy, you know, I also have a neshomah!”

We need Gesher HaChaim to continue its vital service for the children of our community.

Kol Yisroel Areivim! The costs involved in running this program are staggering. The parents cannot do it alone. Many parents of these special needs children are already financially strained due to the overwhelming costs of special services they require but not covered in the system. Gesher HaChaim needs your help to continue its vital work. Please show your support for this important part of our chinuch system. These are Klal Yisroel’s children. It is only possible with the support of the community.

Please join us in our sincere efforts of saving Hashem’s children! May HKB”H bless you with health and Yiddish Nachas from your children!
