Chesed Box

Hospitality & Community Building

In addition to welcoming our new B'not Sheirut (see below) other community members are coming and going and would appreciate a helping hand.  This space is devoted to addressing those needs, and we hope it will generate a generous response.

  • Belaynesh Mekonen is due to arrive from Israel and move into a local apartment Sept. 1.  She would greatly appreciate any information about basic furniture, especially a bed, table and chairs.  Contact Rabbi Davis if you can assist.

  • Mayer, Chumi and Yaakov Juni are relocating to Ithaca and, as their apartment will be without furniture shortly, would appreciate a place to stay next week, Thurs. July 27 through Shabbat or the weekend if possible.  Please contact Mayer at 917-657-5383 / mayerjuni@gmail.com

  • It's not too late to contribute to meals for the Kessler-Laufer or Shapin families who recently welcomed newborn children.  See last week's Darchei bulletin or contact Ed Rapoport or Rabbi Davis for information about how to contribute.

May we continue to support one another in times of simcha, sorrow and transition.

If you or someone you know is in need of financial assistance, please contact Rabbi Davis.  All matters are held in strict confidence.  Click HERE to email him.
