Lawrence, NY - If anyone had damage or was displaced by the storm and has not yet managed to purchase Chanukah supplies, Achiezer is offering wicks, oil, candles, menorahs, etc. free of charge. Feel free to go down to the Achiezer office at 334 Central Avenue this morning between 10:30 AM and 12 noon and pickup whatever you need. You may also call 516-791-4444.
This was made possible due to the generosity of Five Towns Judaica, Judaica Plus, and a private donor.
Also, a wonderful event will take place this Monday night for the families who were affected by the hurricane. The Chanukah SmileShop is a gift boutique where children and adults whose homes were damaged will be able to choose from a treasure of Judaica books and toys to bring home as Chanukah gifts.
