"All who are thirsty, come for water, and those who have no money, come buy and eat; come, buy wine and milk for no money and for no charge!" (Isaiah 55:1)
Rabbi David Kimché ("Radak") explains: "At the end of days the nations will recognize that G-d and none other rules over all, and then they will come to Jerusalem to learn His laws and teachings… Water is a symbol for the Torah. Those who have no money need not worry, for they will be given wine and milk without charge. The Torah is compared to wine, which brings joy, and to milk, which sustains and makes the baby grow."
• Moses said: "See, I have taught you statutes and laws as HaShem has commanded me" (Deut. 4:5) – "Just as I learned without charge, so you too have learned without charge, and likewise when you teach the generations, teach without charge." It is a mitzvah to teach Torah free, without charge. (Nedarim 37a; Rambam, Hilchot Talmud Torah 1:7)
• Internet and other media provide endless free resources and information (as well as plenty of disinformation) in every sphere. Should access to authoritative Jewish teachings be restricted only to those who can pay?
• While some of our students contribute regularly, many are facing severe economic hardship, illness and disability and are often unable to contribute more than a little, if at all.
• Clearly part of the Divine Plan is to give merit to the better-off through their support for Torah study by those who cannot afford to pay.
• All established Yeshivas depend on charitable support.
