2,000 Kiruv Outreach Students from traditional and irreligious homes throughout Israel are enrolled in the 121 Chinuch Atzmai Kiruv Schools. 20,000 of these students live in periphery communities lacking an adequate Torah school.
By funding transportation for these students whose irreligious parents are unwilling or unable to pay, we are enabling them to receive a Torah education that would otherwise have been unavailable.
Additionally, the entire existence of the 121 Kiruv schools is dependent on this transportation funding. The Israeli government requires a minimum of 20 students per class in order to provide educational funding. By strategically placing the students from periphery communities in schools that would not otherwise meet the quota, we are ensuring their continued viability.
