In front of a packed house at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia on Sunday, Rav Malkiel Kotler shlit”a made a stunning announcement: BMG Kollel checks, which had already been increased thanks to the revolutionary Adirei Hatorah initiative, would be going up again. The announcement drew applause from the crowd of more than 25,000 in the arena.
However, the BMG rosh yeshiva did not state how much the checks would be increasing. Lakewood Alerts can now report that the increase will be 5%, beginning in Elul zman.
As Rav Malkiel called it: Being mosif Ahava on Ahava, kavod on kavod hatorah.
