  1. I am from Philadelphia and dropped off some items this morning at a shul serving as a collection and packing center. I believe that the trucks from Lower Merion Synagogue (the drop off point here) will join the Lakewood convoy. Watching people bring the items was so moving…it did not matter how many items but rather the concern and ערבות for others in need was so moving!

    To see whole families – parents and children of all ages – participate in many aspects of this effort was truly amazing.

    Thank you for facilitating this big מצוה!
    מי כעמך ישראל!

    • I totally agree! This is a perfect educational moment – teaching חסד בגופו. Not too late. Texas will still need our help in the coming weeks. Plus there is another major storm coming this week…chesed is not just for the adults. Plus it are these opportunities to engage teens to do things which we often miss. Let’s do it!
