BMG raises kollel checks for youngeleit

In what has been a new initiative, the Lakewood yeshiva Beth Medrash Govoha has for the second year in a row raised the bi weekly kollel check for the kollel members. Its part of a strategy to raise it again over the next few years while at the same time adding many new members on to the payroll. The Kollel budget has now reached close to $15 million dollars annually. The yeshiva has not missed a payroll in over 14 years Ka""h. The raise is a full extra paycheck per year which in total is $500,000.

  1. All those wealthy BMG alumni CPA's should help support and triple the kollel check.

  2. Cpas are not so wealthy. The starting salaries are not earth shaking. Barely enough To pay tuition and put good on the table.

  4. Where is your hakarat hatov?! The yeshiva returns as much as 40% of the money they receive in your Pell grants and you are demanding more?! Do you believe they owe you everything?
    ' Alles kumt mir' . The attitude of these people. They think that because the government sent them money, they actually deserve it!
    You just sit and learn and let someone else get the money.

  6. How many checks are senteach week?

    Numbers don't add up. $15 million is not $500K per week for 50 weeks. Let alone how many checks get sent out.
