Torch Gmilus Chesed Fund

Donors can also make donations via zelle @

The dissemination of Torah ideals to the American Jewish Community is a critical need at this juncture of time.  The Torah Ohr Scholarship Fund’s goal is to assist the major Torah Educational Institutions in America for the advancement of Jewish education. We will promote these ideals through a Torah Scholarship Fund for dedicated Rebbeim who find themselves in critical need of financial assistance. 

Our goal is to distribute funding where ever and whenever nationwide in the most discreet and dignified manner to our Rebbeim who are involved in the vital role of being the lifeline to the spiritual growth of our children. We are guided by our Rabbinical Supervisory Board in the distribution of these funds.

Torch since its inception in 2005 has been a conduit for over hundreds of thousand dollars of grant money to worthy Rebbeim in Cleveland, Baltimore, Detroit, and Philadelphia. We urge you to join and partner with us in this most urgent and pressing to those we are so indebted for the spiritual success of our children.
