Support Eli at Yeshiva University!!!
Organized by: Eli Richards
My name is Eli Richards, I grew up in London, England and have spent the past year in Yeshiva in Israel at Aish Hatorah as part of the Gesher program. I have taken the exciting decision to go to Yeshiva University, starting in the Fall of 2016. I have been accepted to the business honors program and I intend to join the Beis Hamedrash program. My decision to attend YU is largely based on avoiding the problems that would arise at home as a result of attending a secular college. By immersing myself in the Jewish environment at YU my Judaism will continue to grow from the level I find myself at now, perhaps in a secular college my level of growth would stagnate or even be reduced. This decision has the potential to be the most important and the best decision I will make in my life. But with this decision comes the realization that I must be able to support myself while away from home. I can't just get by, I need the funds for basic necessities above and beyond the tuition costs; books, travel, phone contract, flights home, snacks etc. My parents would love to help me and they fully support my decision to attend YU but are not in a financial position to be able to provide for me. So I turn to you, please help me. Please pledge whatever you can to support my decision. I am more than happy and would in fact love to discuss my situation with anyone that would like to talk about it. I can't wait to start the rest of my life and I hope you will help!
