FUND FOR THE HUNGRY AND HOMELESS
YOM KIPPUR APPEAL
Is not this the fast that I have chosen
To undo the bands of the yoke...
Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry...
That thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house
And when you see the naked to clothe him?
For a lot of our neighbors here in Westchester a steady income, a place of their own and nourishing reliable meals are a dream right now. Children are living in shelters. The old and the young are going to food pantries for groceries. More people than ever are numbered among the working poor in our county.
This is one crisis we can do something about.
If every family and individual member of TIC writes a check for the amount of money we would have spent on meals if Yom Kippur had been an ordinary day, we can turn our fast into a safe haven for kids, meals and shelter for the neediest, care for the homebound and housing loans for our neighbors.
We will use your money effectively. We have no overhead except the postage for this letter. We direct your donations to local agencies where they will do the most good in the most direct way.
Please make your check payable to Temple Israel Center, mark it "HELP FOR THE HOMELESS" and mail it to TIC.
We wish you and yours an easy and fruitful fast and a year of peace, health and happiness.
