Tzedaka in Support of the Poor
for Yom Tov
As is well-known, our Rabbis tell us that before the Days of Awe it is an opportune time to donate charity to the poor and support other worthy causes, most notably, Torah study. These merits will accompany us on the day of judgment. You can donate in any of the following ways:

1- Kollel Yom Tov Fund - Help struggling families for Yom tov by making a check to the Kollel and writing "Yom Tov Fund" in the memo or donate online here: Yom Tov Fund  (Please write "Yom Tov Fund" in the description box)

2- Support the Kollel  and its activities by donating here today:  Philadelphia Community Kollel

A tax deductible receipt will be sent promptly.

May it be a zechus for you for a happy, sweet new year!
