Yad Chessed Collection

- All Day Event
TBE is collecting donations for Yad Chessed, an organization that provides emergency assistance and food support for our Massachusetts Jewish Community. They support Jewish individuals and families by alleviating economic distress and helping them reach financial stability, all while working to preserve the dignity of each individual client.
Many are unaware of Jewish poverty, but there are Jewish families struggling right in our own communities. In the Greater Boston area alone, 4,000 Jewish households are living in poverty, at or below 200% of the federal poverty line. Up to 11,000 more are at risk of poverty. On Purim, we have the obligation of Matanot L’Evyonim (“Gifts to the poor”). This is a wonderful opportunity to fulfill this mitzvah and help Yad Chessed provide good assistance to our neighbors.
Please bring in a check made out to “Yad Chessed”.
