raised from the community. Donations can be mailed to:

Kinder Fund, 1789 Lincoln Highway, Box 110, Edison NJ 08817, dropped off at Janice Lustiger’s home or donate online: PayPal.Me/TheKinderFund.

Help for a Settlement in Israel

Seneh – Bnea Adam is a relatively Recent “Suburb” of the “settlement” know as “Adam” (also know as Givat Binyamih, I believe). There are about 50 beautiful families living there and there are-already- over 200 children. The area here is very “unbuilt” (driving on the road is an “unforgettable” experience) and one of the needed items missing is a PLAYGROUND for these children. The families who live here have – through great effort- raised about 1⁄2 of the necessary amount need- ed for such a playground. This will provide a safe, open and inviting area for these children. They currently have to raise about $75,740 more. Because this is considered such an important project in improving the quality of life for these fami- lies, a p’sak was sought and received that one who contributes to this project may use money designated for “Ma’aser Kesafim”. In addition, an arrangement has been made with the organization “Heart of Israel” to make a tax deductible contribution by accessing: https://www.the Chedva-Ashowai- who is my niece- can be contacted for more information at: 011-972-52-558-3635 and can arrange for a visit to the site for those trav- eling to Israel. If have any further questions, please feel free to contact me (Zvi Weiss) at 908-208-0037.

Rides and Drivers for Shopping

I am starting a new community service to match people who need a ride to go shopping to people who are going to that store. If you need a ride to a store, call (732) 501-1409 and leave a message with your name, phone number, store where you need to go. I will send a message out asking if anyone is going to that store. The driver will contact you to make arrangements. This service is for people who can be independent in the store. Please realize that I will attempt to find a driver for you, but I am not guaranteeing that I will be able to do so. Drivers, please call or text (732) 501-1409 to be added to the list of drivers. You will get a message when a driver is requested. You will not be expected to make a special trip to the store, just to drive someone if you need to go for yourself. Susan Kollmar

APPEAL FOR TZEDAKAH from OE Tzedakah Fund.

The demand for tzedakah in our community and others remains as strong as ever. The Rabbi’s Tzedakah Fund is being depleted to meet these needs. Please be so kind as to contribute to this fund to enable those in need to continue to receive the help they require. Please make checks payable to Ohav Emeth and indicate “Tzedakah Fund” in the memo. Thank you for your generosity

Appeal from an OE Member Family:

Update - Thank you to all who have contributed to raise funds for a community member to attend a rehab program. This person has completed the first and most expensive part of the program, and is, thank G-d, doing well. Even with the generous donations shared by community members, the family was forced to borrow thousands of dollars each month to pay $6,000 monthly for the program. They are struggling with significant accumulated debt, and our help is still needed. Please help this local family recover from extreme financial burden. They have generously supported our community in the past and never though they would need to ask for themselves. Please visit https:// to donate by credit card or if you wish to make out a check instead of contributing online, please make it out to Congrega- tion Ohav Emeth and in the memo write Rabbi’s Charity Fund. On a separate note (NOT IN MEMO), write that it is for the rehab campaign.

*Special Mitzvah opportunity for men and post high school boys:

A year and 3 months ago, Rabbi Aaron (Ahrele) Oster, a respected teacher & ben Torah from Monsey, suffered a Septic shock. With Hashem's miracles & Klal Yisrael's Tefilos, his life was saved and is on the road to recovery. Unfortunately, his limbs couldn't be saved and he needed to undergo a quadruple amputation several months ago. For the continuation of his recovery & rehab, Arele was recently transferred from Boston to
the AristaCare Rehab facility in South Plainfield, to be closer to family and friends. The family has set up shifts for visitation whereby there is an almost constant presence by immediate and extended family & friends at his
bedside. Please help Rabbi Oster and his family by taking an empty time slot and going over for a short visit in times of need. A What's App chat is being formed - please join even if you have limited availability. Slots would be posted on the chat. Please reply privately if you can visit and/or to be added to the chat: Rabbi Shmuel Gancz 845-746-1927 or Mrs. Oster 845-596-4868. Please continue to daven for Aharon ben Chana for a complete Refuah. In the zechus of this mitzvah, may you be blessed with health, nachas & prosperity .
