Due to the worldwide restrictions on travel due to Covid-19, Rav Shlomo Kanievsky is unable to undertake his usual fundraising trips to raise money to keep his yeshiva, Tiferes Tzion/ Kiryas Melech, going. Just over a year after the historic campaign to save the Yeshiva founded by the Chazon Ish and is bnisius of Rav Chaim Kanievsky, the yeshiva once again finds itself at a critical juncture.
Last year, the Torah world of America came together in unprecedented fashion for Rav Shlomo Kanievsky during his week-long trip to the United States to save his yeshiva. Now they need help to get through this challenging time.
The yeshiva is so close to the heart of the rosh yeshiva’s father, the gadol hador and nasi of the Yeshiva, Rav Chaim Kanievsky, that Rav Chaim will be setting aside time every single day of the upcoming Yom Tov of Chanukah to daven for those who come to the yeshiva’s aid at this crucial time.
Rav Shlomo continues to carry the full responsibility for the financial burden of the yeshiva, following the guidance of his father, Rav Chaim Kanievsky, and his grandfather, Rav Yosef Shalom Elyashiv, who encouraged him to do whatever he can to ensure the growth and vitality of Tiferes Tzion/Kiryas Melech. Funds are desperately needed and Rav Shlomo is now turning to us.
The yeshiva that we all saved, the yeshiva whose rosh yeshiva we all welcomed, the yeshiva whose continued vitality is in our zechus, needs our help at this time once again.
