life and legacy check picHebrew Theological College is excited to announce that it has successfully secured 18 Life & Legacy commitments during the 2014-15 academic year. As a result, HTC received a one-time cash incentive gift of $10,000 from the Harold Grinspoon Foundation's Life & Legacy Program. HTC thanks Mr. Michael Nussbaum, HTC Board Member and Endowment Committee Chairman for spearheading this most important project.

HTC is one of only 15 Jewish organizations in Metropolitan Chicago selected in a competitive process to participate in the Grinspoon Foundation's Life & Legacy Program. At a celebratory event held on June 16, 2015, at the Standard Club, the Grinspoon Foundation announced that they will recognize organizations with an additional incentive gift of $10,000 upon securing another 18 legacy commitments in the next 12 months.

Participating in HTC's Life and Legacy Program is one of many ways that alumni, parents and friends are able to give back to HTC. Legacy gifts can be established 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.

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. With your help we hope to guarantee HTC's vibrancy for future generations.

YU Reunion Pic 2015 for web

On Wednesday, May 6th, Fasman Yeshiva High School welcomed over 40 recent alumni to lunch in Belfer Hall in Yeshiva University. FYHS alumni were overjoyed to share fond memories of the Yeshiva with Rabbi Mordechai Ginsparg, Assistant Principal and Rabbi Joshua Zisook, Director of Admissions. Rabbi Ginsparg updated the alumni about the new High School Beis Midrash and the great accomplishments in the Yeshiva. As one alumnus put it, “It was just like Rabbi Ginsparg was giving his morning announcements. It was so great to hear that the Yeshiva is doing so well.”

Rabbi Ginsparg also stressed that the Yeshiva is so proud of all of our alumni and that the Yeshiva wants to be part of their simchas and milestones. Additionally, Rabbi Zisook updated the group of the upcoming positive developments that HTC will soon encounter. He emphasized that the new partnership with Touro College should greatly enhance the offerings in the college and encourage more students to attend HTC for Beis Midrash & College. Later in the day, Rabbi Ginsparg and Rabbi Zisook enjoyed a dinner reunion with a few alumni studying in Landers College in Queens. One alumnus noted, “We are very busy with college and it’s not often that we are able to get together as a group. We are so thrilled to have this opportunity.” Another alumnus noted, “We should do this more often!” To that Rabbi Zisook noted, “We may do just that!”
