BMG — National Community Development Office

In 2008, the Family Foundation partnered with Beth Medrash Govoha (BMG), the largest Yeshiva in the U.S. with over 6,000 talmidim, to create and build BMG’s National Community Development office (NCDO), headed by Rabbi Sroy Levitansky.

In its many years of operation, the NCDO has invested time, energy, and resources to learn the landscape of nearly every city in North America that has a kollel presence. The NCDO has also built bridges and relationships with these communities, to make them aware, that the office understands their challenges and needs, and that the vast resources of BMG and beyond, are here for them.

In time, the NCDO’s placement division has become the central go-to team, that can and does fill the vast majority of educational and community positions that are opening in North America. The placement division finds and develops new talent, which ensures that when positions open it can fill them with the best possible candidates. It has also become a central address for Yungeleit looking for a position in an out of town community.

The NCDO has also become a national resource for the full scope of community building requirements; from key information such as the cost of living in any given locale, to helping set a strong and effective structured learning program for Kollelim.

This has made the NCDO a nationwide Jewish community building resource, which is a key strength that continues to make them indispensable to the Jewish People.
