LDovid Mizmor

Tribute to Lifelong Dedication to the Yeshiva

LDovid Mizmor Building Project

This project is named LDovid Mizmor in tribute to the lifelong dedication and askonus of R’ Dovid Chontow ztl on behalf of the Yeshiva.

We are delighted to share with you the news that, at the request of the Hanholoh, work has started on the development of a new build multi-purpose study and dormitory block. It will be situated on the Rectory Road site that currently houses the Yeshiva administration facilities and temporary sleeping accommodation unit.

The Yeshiva has steadily grown in numbers in recent years, with 430 בחורים enrolled for the current Elul Zeman (5781 / 2021).  Whilst the shiur rooms, dining halls and shared amenities can cope with this number, there are not enough bedrooms for our Talmidim.

As a temporary measure we have converted several rooms above the office/admin areas in the Rectory Road extension which can accommodate some students. Longer term more rooms are required, and the communal facilities also require expansion.

What will it contain

  • Over 100 beds (with 2-4 beds in each room)
    Special sick room?
  • shiur / vaad rooms
  • administration offices
  • 4 floors
  • aesthetically done with full landscaping

Costs and timescale

  • project cost £5m
  • to be finished 2024

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Gateshead Yeshiva Alumni to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Gateshead Yeshiva Alumni we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Gateshead Yeshiva Alumni to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Gateshead Yeshiva Alumni will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Gateshead Yeshiva Alumni receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
