Do people still get into Yissachar/Zevulun partnerships? And i dont mean simply donating money to a kollel but a real 1 on 1 type of a partnership.
Do you know of anyone who’s done it?
How is it done? Should Zevulun pay certain agreed upon amount, or whatever Yissachar needs or half of everything he earns?
Is it a segula for Zevulun to earn more money?
Is this something you would consider doing?
Most people I know have trouble supporting 1 family, let alone 2. I think the possibility of a true Yissachar/Zevulun relationship is rare.
It isn’t rare at all. Many Kollelim offer this partnership. And there are quite a number of takers.
Ben Torah, a true relationship?
Please show me how many families can take their salary, divide it in two and still be able to afford basic shelter, food, clothing and tuition.
There are rich people around who could do this but somehow i never heard of it being done.
I have heard of many Talmidey Chachamim who do it quietly with gevirim, in terms of support exceeding 20/30 thousand a year and chasunuos. But only top notch, established talmidey chachamim & marbitzey torah. R’ Moshe writes, though, that true yissachar zevulun was to split both the fortune and the learning (not merely full support). But one who supports a major talmid chacham certainly has tremendous zechusim!
