Help HTC Receive a $10,000 gift from the Harold Grinspoon Foundation

mr. Wess pic for webHebrew Theological College is excited to announce the launch of our new Life and Legacy Campaign. This new initiative is just one of many ways that alumni, parents and friends of HTC are able to give back to HTC. For over nine decades, HTC has educated thousands of students worldwide in HTC's Beis Midrash and College for Men, Blitstein Institute for Women and Fasman Yeshiva High School.

A legacy gift can come in various forms and need not impact one's finances during their lifetime. Life and Legacy gifts will be used exclusively to support the HTC Endowment Fund, securing the future of HTC and its vital role within the community.

As an incentive to kick off this new campaign, the Harold Grinspoon's Life & Legacy Program will give HTC a one-time cash incentive of $10,000, upon securing 18 commitments to our Life & Legacy Campaign this year. With your help we hope to guarantee HTC's vibrancy for future generations.

HTC encourages anyone who is interested in learning more about this special opportunity to contact the Development Team by email at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or by phone at 847 982 2500 ext. 132.

In early June, HTC received a generous gift of a beautiful Aron Kodesh with a built-in safe, from Ohr Yisochor-Chodorov.

HTC plans to dedicate and fill the book cases with new and relevant seforim as well as renovate other parts of the Beis Midrash. In just a few short weeks, these new additions have already begun to enhance the learning and davening experience in the High School Beis Midrash.

HTC would like to thank Rabbi Pinchas Eichenstein, Rabbi Heshy Weingarten and Rabbi Aryeh Bassman for their tireless efforts to bring the beauty of Ohr Yisochor-Chodorov to our Yeshiva.

Reunion 1 croppedOn Wednesday, May 7, Fasman Yeshiva High School held alumni reunions with recent FYHS graduates who are studying in Yeshivas and Colleges in New York. About 40 students gathered in Yeshiva University’s Furst Hall, for a pizza lunch on the first day of reading week. Later that day, about 10 students studying in Lander College for Men gathered for dinner at Carlos and Gabby’s restaurant.

As Rabbi Schuman put it, “It was so wonderful to catch up with our former talmidim and we were overwhelmed by their accomplishments. We brought them up to date on the happenings in the Yeshiva and they were so excited to hear that things are, B”H, developing so nicely.” During the reunions Rabbi Schuman impressed upon the alumni, that with their enthusiasm for their Yeshiva, they can help ensure that FYHS will be as vibrant for future students as it was for them. In attendance were, Rabbi Shmuel L. Schuman, Interim CEO of HTC, Rabbi Mordechai Ginsparg, FYHS Assistant Principal and Rabbi Joshua Zisook, Director of Admissions. All three rabbis were so proud to have had the opportunity to re-connect with the alumni and strengthen their special bond to our Yeshiva.

Reunion 2 croppedLater in June, FYHS plans to host a young alumni reunion in Chicago with students studying in Hebrew Theological College and Chicago area universities.
