Today Is the Chofetz Chaim’s Yahrtzeit

For the next 24 hours, the duration of the Chofetz Chaim’s yahrtzeit, the Chofetz Chaim Heritage Foundation is on a drive to raise $500,000 to take its mission to a whole new level. Three generous supporters are providing matching funds, meaning that every dollar donated today will be quadrupled.

As the only organization devoted solely to spreading the Chofetz Chaim’s teachings on Ahavas Yisrael, CCHF’s programs have positively affected communities around the world and changed lives of many for the past 28 years.

Here’s are some of the Chofetz Chaim Heritage Foundation’s accomplishments so far:

Our programs reach 6 continents, 22 countries, 350 communities. More than 40,000 students in elementary and high school use our curriculum;· 430 schools participate in our educational programs, 25,000 callers  use our three hotlines daily, 420,000 books are in print, 18,000 learning emails go out daily, 50,000 attend our World-Wide Tisha h B’Av Event.

The Chofetz Chaim knew that Shemiras Haloshon was the best protection for our lives; only if we would have compassion for each other would Hashem have compassion on us. He devoted his life to teaching Klal Yisrael what Hashem wanted from us, what the Torah demanded of us, what we could do to merit protection and salvation.

At the urging of the Manchester Rosh Yeshivah, Rav Yehudah Zev Segal, zt”l, the Chofetz Chaim Heritage Foundation took up this banner 28 years ago. It is the world’s only organization dedicated solely to this purpose, and year after year, it has taken its mission to new levels. As the years have passed, CCHF has initiated many ways of inspiring and teaching both young and old.

Thanks to the generous support of our chairman, the world renowned baal tzedakah and baal chessed Reb Shlomo Yehuda Rechnitz, sheyichyeh, we launched “Cultivating the Caring Classroom” in many schools nationwide. We developed curriculum for grades 1 through 12, teaching children the laws of Shemiras Halashon and helping them internalize its message.

Today, on the Chofetz Chaim’s yahrtzeit, we are offering Klal Yisrael the opportunity to enable us to drastically increase the scope of our holy work. With this one-day, quadruple-matching-funds campaign, we can build on our outreach, our track record and our non-stop development of new initiatives — because today, no less than in the Chofetz Chaim’s day, Klal Yisrael needs this protection.

FOR THE NEXT 24 HOURS ONLY, every single dollar YOU give to the Chofetz Chaim Heritage Foundation will honor the memory of the Chofetz Chaim, whose yahrtzeit is TODAY, and build a powerful merit for the Jewish people as the New Year arrives.

DONATE TODAY by calling 845-352-3505 ext 101, and help Chofetz Chaim Heritage Foundation pave the way for a brighter future!
