Torah Letzion was started in May 2008 with the goal of helping students grow religiously and personally in their respective Yeshivot/Seminaries. Our organization began when our founder, Marc Merrill, was approached by his Rosh Yeshiva to raise funds for a student who was unable to afford the high cost of studying in Israel. Marc was able to raise enough money to help send three students to Israel for the 2008-2009 school year.
Inspired by his success, a few students joined the cause and continued raising money for this newly founded organization. In 2009-2010, six students were sent to Israel and ten more students were sent to Israel for the 2010-2011 school year. In 2011-2012 we reached 20 students, and for the upcoming year of 2012-2013 30 students will be studying in Israel on a TLZ scholarship. Our hope is to continue to help many more young men and women achieve their goals and reach their full potential.
Torah Letzion has helped students attend the following Yeshivot and Seminaries:
•Sha’alvim for Men
•Sha’alvim for Women
