Since the article about Yeshiva’s IRS troubles surfaced, we have been humbled by an
amazing show of support. We have received calls from alumni and supporters from all over the
world asking how they can help. These are people who recognize the Yeshiva’s contributions
to their own lives and the lives of countless others over the past 70 years, and they want this
tradition to continue. Like us, they cannot imagine Worcester without the Yeshiva.
As many of you know, the IRS seized the building at 22 Newton Avenue and is holding
an auction next week. We have been working hard to secure funds in order to divert this action.
Though this action is a threat to our building, it has not dampened our commitment
and resolve to persevere. The Yeshiva has served the Jewish community of Worcester
and the surrounding communities for over seventy years and will continue to do so. It is
a beacon of light…the center of Jewish education and commitment to Jewish pride and
Yeshiva was one of the first day schools established by the Previous Rebbe. It is
responsible for establishing six Chabad houses in Central Massachusetts. Yeshiva reaches out
to new unaffiliated families now more than ever before. It is now an established presence as
Chabad on Campus at Clark and WPI.
We are enthused and committed about our future. The only bump in the road is the
IRS. Please make a donation today and call a friend or alert any alumni to help us with this
