$441,269, but will benefit the
school in perpetuity.
"The Tanenbaum gift is the
beginning of a solution to the
yeshiva's long-range needs,"
Rabbi Freedman said. "His
style of giving recognizes that
the yeshiva needs to be here
for years to come." Freedman
said it is the first major long-
term gift received by the
yeshiva, and that gifts of this
nature will not only benefit
the students currently enroll-
ed but children who will at-
tend in the future.
The burden of support for
the yeshiva should not be
borne by the parents alone,
Rabbi Freedman added.
"Jewish schools have to be
seen as a resource for the en-
tire community. You need
Jewish education for the
future of the Jewish com-
munity."
