L’chvod Rav Avi, Rabbi Lopatin, Rabbi Linzer, Rabbi Love, Rav Katz and the rest of the faculty and staff, Obviously, we are grateful that you have created a holy place of learning for both Chai and Tzachi. But do you realize the profound influence you have had and continue to have in our lives? Thank you for helping us to create an open orthodox home where Torah is observed consciously. Thank you for modeling for us how to live the Torah that we learn. Thank you for helping us to raise our children with the knowledge that they could question anything that did not make sense to them, and that that is a proper and healthy attitude to apply to all aspects of Torah living. It brings us tremendous comfort and gives us strength knowing that Yeshivat Chovevei Torah is here to inspire and guide all of us.

With heartfelt thanks,
Estelle and Harvey Posner
Parents of Chai Posner (YCT ’10) and Tzachi Posner (YCT ’17)

We are training future rabbis who can lead and transform the Jewish community in consonance with modern and open Orthodox values.

The need for an open, professional, and academically rigorous school is deeply felt in the Orthodox community. We are already making a substantial impact, as reflected by the excitement engendered by our program, the work of our alumni in the field, the participation in our symposia and the number and quality of our students.

The financial requirements to maintain and further develop YCT Rabbinical School are enormous.

We hope that you will join with us and support our mission with a gift.
