The Sammy Farkas Torah Center

Inspiring Jewish families to light up their Shabbat

You are reading this because you knew Sammy Farkas or you knew his story.

 

Sammy was a source of great light to his family and to all those who met him. He had a contagious smile and a beautiful sensitivity to the needs of others. He coupled his sweet nature with a special relationship with Hashem, to Whom he prayed so fervently.

Within twelve hours of Sammy’s burial on the Mount of Olives less than one year ago, Kollel Akeidas Yitzchok, a unique Friday learning program focusing on Shabbat and sharing its beauty, was launched in his everlasting memory by his father.

As we approach Sammy’s first yahrtzeit, please partner with us to continue this special mission in his merit.

Sammy had a very special neshama and would always prepare the Shabbat candles.

Your gift ensures that Sammy’s neshama lights up the homes of countless families, every Shabbat.

Your gift ensures that The Sammy Farkas Torah Center has the resources to do what it does best: Inspire families of all backgrounds to ELEVATE their Shabbat and CELEBRATE their achievements.

Your gift makes a profound difference.

Because of you, Sammy’s legacy will be perpetuated for eternity.

Because of you, families will discover a passion and excitement for Shabbat, its depth and its beauty, that they never even knew existed.

Because of you, Jewish unity will be cultivated in the Land of Israel.

The Sammy Farkas Torah Center brings together Jews and families from across the spectrum.

Native Israelis join Olim from across all five continents of the world; full-time professionals alongside respected Torah scholars; all dedicated to lighting up their Shabbat in memory of Sammy.

Your gift will empower The Sammy Farkas Torah Center to host special events and celebrations, in addition to the regular Friday program, to share the beauty of Shabbat with as many families as possible.

Your gift will create passion, joy and inspiration at the Shabbat table of numerous families in Israel.

Please open your hearts.

Rabbi Yaakov Arvele, Director - The Sammy Farkas Torah Center
Jerusalem District, Israel

Upon my cousin Sammy's tragic passing, his father and I dreamed of continuing his legacy. Sammy's preparation for and dedication to Shabbat inspired us to launch the Sammy Farkas Torah Center in his memory, dedicated to sharing the beauty and depth of Shabbat with families across the spectrum. Having been involved in inspiring and teaching teenagers and professionals on all levels from an array of backgrounds, I now dedicate my energies to spearheading educational programs in Sammy's merit.
