Support YGW

For almost 60 years, the Yeshiva of Greater Washington has been at the forefront of Jewish education. Our mission is to root each student in Torah, plant a passion for learning, and prepare them for life. Almost 2,000 alumni are testament to the success of that mission as they teach and serve the Jewish community in 26 states, in Israel, and in countries throughout the world.

Nowhere has the impact of our mission been felt more than in our own community. Our local alumni are active in every way, and are engaged in the entire spectrum of our community’s institutions, schools, and synagogues, as rabbis, teachers, board members, and volunteers, passionately committed to the growth and future of our community.

It is thanks to our partnership with you, in support of Jewish education and a Jewish future, that all of this is possible. We provide scholarship funds of approximately $2.3 million per year which helps more than 75% of our families. It is an enormous challenge, but one that we know is necessary for our community and our future. Join us today.

    The Yeshiva of Greater Washington will recite Kaddish three times daily throughout the year of mourning and on each Yahrtzeit in perpetuity to fulfill this obligation. Through our Kol Kaddish program, your donation will ensure a voice to say Kaddish in memory of your loved one. The suggested donation for these services is $750.00.

    This includes Kaddish three times daily for the year of mourning.

    Yahrtzeit and Yizkor in Perpetuity $600
