Title: A TIME Shas-A-Thon
Post by: mod on December 26, 2016, 09:43:59 PM
From the moment a couple detects a challenge in having a baby of their own, A TIME is at their side providing logistical guidance, medical assistance and emotional support. 

They are currently in the middle of a major fundraiser called the Shas-A-Thon. The Shas-A-Thon lomeid commits to learn 10 blatt gemara with 290 other lomdim under one roof in order to complete Shas in just under 6 hours.  All of the learning, in addition to the money raised, will be in the merit of those who are waiting for their tefillos to be answered.

If you would be interested in sponsoring me and joining me on this special mission, please feel free to pm me.

May your donation be a zchus for you and your family and may all of our effort be a zchus for those in need of a yeshua.

Ma shelibcha chafetz. Can be any amount you want. They have pre filled options from masechta sponsor ($5000)  down to silver daf sponsor ($260) then fill in your own option for whatever you want.
Each loimed sets a goal for what they can reach.

I wonder if this should have been in general discussion vs just shmooze.  Not really sure of the distinctions.

Its fine either way. Its like the famous vort on parshas trumah that it matters on the כוונה of the person giving to ensure that their donation goes towards the Aron kodesh as opposed to the janitor. Here too, since your intentions were good, I don't think it matters whether its in JS or GD

B"H we have had a very successful campaign, but we are not done yet!
We have 1 another month to continue to make a difference.  Please partner with me in this incredible cause and this tremendous zechus of completing all of Shas in one day together with 290 other lomdim.

I personally thank you for your involvement in this endeavor. More than that, I forward the unspoken thanks of those couples who are surrounded by too-clean walls and too-quiet rooms every minute of their lives. The hope and dreams your support will enable is more potent than one can fathom.

Please PM me for information on how to join me!

Final Update

Since signing up for the Shas-A-Thon back in November, I have been absolutely blown away by the caring and generosity that I have witnessed. Baruch Hashem, we have exceeded our original goals, raising a significant amount for couples who yearn for children of their own. I sincerely thank everyone who has donated.

But now, with one week left until the event, lets reach even further. I ask you, one more time, to help us reach our new, final goal.

Please join me by supporting this amazing cause. Your name will be linked to this powerful Siyum of Hope, generated by our day-long learning. IyH, in the zchus of linking your name to this tremendous cause, those who are waiting for their tefillos to be answered should experience a yeshua and Hashem should shower you and your family with continuous bracha, hatzlacha,  and siyata d'shmaya.

Please PM me for info on how to join me!

BH back for another year!!!

It was just last year that we witnessed a miracle!  The doctors had told the couple that it was impossible for them to have a child and that there was no hope. However,  after 10 years, the proud father stood on the stage, holding his new set of twins, a son and a daughter. This is what A TIME is all about!  (I have included links to the 2 personal journeys from last year's siyum)


A TIME is an unbelievable organization. From the moment a couple detects a challenge in having a baby of their own, A TIME is at their side providing logistical guidance, medical assistance and emotional support through its many programs.  


One of these programs is called the Shas-A-Thon. The Shas-A-Thon lomed commits to learn 10 blatt gemara with 290 other lomdim under one roof in order to complete Shas in just under 6 hours. All of the learning, in addition to the money raised, will be in the merit of those who are waiting for their tefillos to be answered. Every lomed is learning and davening for one purpose; to storm the gates of Heaven, beseeching Hashem to see our actions and answer the prayers of HIS children. 


Last year, we raised over $30,000 and have been blown away by the generosity of people who may not even know a couple who is facing this challenge. 


This year, we have undertaken to raise $40,000! 

Join me by sponsoring a daf. Your name will be linked to this powerful Siyum of Hope generated by our day-long learning. The merit of our combined Siyum will certainly be a Zechus and blessing for those who support its completion.


May Hashem see all of our actions, and bless the A TIME couples with a yeshua, and all of us with health, happiness, and siyata d'shmaya in all areas of our lives. 


On behalf of ourselves, A TIME, and all of the couples who are waiting for their yeshua, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. 


To donate, please pm me or go to the site and sponsor anyone you want.
