Community Initiatives:


Gloves and masks

Hatzolah has been getting requests for assistance with obtaining surgical masks and gloves due to people not being able to find them anywhere.


In response to the requests, we are trying to make a bulk order at this
time. Taking supply-shortages into account, there is a max of 20 surgical masks/family, and 2 x boxes of powder- free vinyl gloves (sized either medium or XL).
Gloves = $8/box of 100
Surgical Masks = $1/mask


NOTE: This is for the local community only. Please send an e-mail to atara.erps@gmail.com in the following format:
Subject: Please write “COVID”
Body: Write Name, Address, Cell number, and quantity of masks/gloves

The current circumstances present a unique opportunity to perform acts of chessed with our fellow community members. The Vaad will be establishing two separate committees in order to provide support and assistance during this critical time.

Emergency Parnasa Initiative (EPI) – Undoubtably, the current situation will affect the income of members in our community. We are setting up a committee that will identify specific needs and allocate the necessary support and funds to individuals. When there was a community-wide appeal in 2009, members responded with extreme generosity, and we were able to help both the unemployed and the underemployed with dignity. We hope that the community will respond similarly during this time of crisis. If you are interested in participating on this important committee, please contact Rabbi Gedaliah Jaffe at gedaliahjaffe@yahoo.com
