I am trying to raise money for a one-way trip to Israel so that I might resume my studies at Yeshivat Aish HaTorah.
Since I came back to the United States, I've slowly fallen of the derech and am in dire need of a spiritual steroid.
Help me get back to Aish. Help me connect to my roots and become a better person for the benefit of mankind.
Every bit helps and any remaining funds will be given to tzedakah.
Avraham Mendel ben Osher HaLevi
