Founded in 1978, the Hebrew Academy of the Five Towns and Rockaway (HAFTR) sets the standard of excellence for American Jewish yeshiva education on both the lower and secondary levels. Located on Long Island in Lawrence, NY, HAFTR educates students from age two to twelfth grade amd prepares them for a true Torah Life as Jews. As with all schools, operating funds are always needed.
The yeshiva decided to have a Chinese Auction as a fundraiser, but they wanted to reach out beyond their local neighborhood. With their web design by Bitochon they were able to reach out and draw bids from across the U.S. We built HAFTR's website with great flexibility in mind. It features an e-commerce website development that allows different types of tickets to be purchased via credit card. The website accepts donations from anywhere in the world and at any time. Their Chinese Auction was a huge success because they were able to raise more money through the sale of tickets on their website. And they can reuse the website year after year for their annual Chinese Auction.
