Dear Friends: I do not like to bother my readers, but sometimes I cannot say no. I do not do this for myself, only to help others. I screen requests for help and make sure that no money is spent on "overhead" or "director's salaries." Every penny you'll give will go to help buy food and pay for other amenities, such as Machzorim and Talleisim. Paypal takes a few percent, but I cannot help or avoid that. Collect זכותים before the יום הדין by helping Hashem's children return. Having said that - please read the email that I received today and respond generously. In this z'chus may the Holy One, blessed be he, bless you with a good year and fulfill all your heart's desires.
"Dear Hirshel: We are arranging a Rosh Hashana for about 20 people who are not affiliated with any shul.
We are renting them a home to stay in and food for the duration of yomtov; a house with 10 Bedrooms and dining and living rooms which we will use as the shul.
These are holy yidelach who for various reasons have left the fold and will reconnect with your help.
I am a simple Jew doing this and it has already cost me $1,000 but will need at least another $2,000 which I can hardly afford. I know that your readers have been kind and generous before and ask that you kindly post this on your choshuv'e blog so that other Yidden may have the z'chus as well.
A ziese gebenchte yur, a ksive vechasima toiveh, nur gits far alle Yiddelach."
