Yizkor Appeal for Shavuos:
This year we are directing our Shavuos Yizkor Appeal to the Israeli Chesed organization Baruch U’Marpeh, specifically for the purchase of venitilators and other life-saving equipment related to the coronavirus. Many of our members know Rabbi David Schlesinger, director of the organization, and have supported Baruch U’Marpeh in the past.
Due to the situation we will not be having an oral appeal, and our gabbaim will not be walking around to collect pledges; so it is important that our members give generously to this worthy organization, without further prompting.
To facilitate getting the funds to Baruch U’Marpeh as quickly as possible, I urge you to make out your check to YIGC, and mark it “Shavuose Yizkor Appeal.”
Thank you for your consideration, and best regards for a Chag Somayach.
