MEDICAL PROVIDER APPRECIATION SHABBAT

To recognize their tremendous contributions and support them during this challenging time, ASBI is designating Parshat Emor (May 8 - 9) as Medical Provider Appreciation Shabbat. The Chesed committee will arrange to send Shabbat dinner and a thank you note to any shul members who fall into this category.

Mizrahi Comes to Lakeview!
Place an order this week for delivery on Thursday, April 30.
Support one of Anshe Sholom's favorite caterers and enjoy Mizrahi for Thursday Dinner (and maybe for Shabbat as well)!

Organized by the YP Committee but open to the whole Lakeview Community. Mizrahi is bringing us their delicious food to Lakeview and delivering to our homes Thursday evening April 30th for just an extra $5 per household.

Since they are coming all the way from Northbrook, this can only work if we have a minimum of 15 orders and the orders are $25 minimum. Just call Mizrahi (847-831-1400), tell them you are part of the Lakeview order for Thursday April 30th, place your order, and pay over the phone. Orders must be placed by 2:00 PM on Thursday, April 30th.

We miss you a lot but hopefully the taste of Mizrahi will remind you of the delicious YP Shabbat Dinners that we can't wait to have with you (when it's safe!).
cRc List of Items That Do Not Require Hashgachah For Year-Round Use
Due to COVID-19, more consumers have turned to online shopping for their groceries, which makes it more difficult to determine whether a given item is kosher-certified. To facilitate shopping in this new reality, the cRc has compiled a short list of items that do not require certification. These items are inherently kosher, and nothing is done to them during the manufacturing process that affects their kosher status.

Download the list here.
Financial Assistance Fund
ASBI is launching a Financial Assistance Fund to provide short-term financial assistance ASBI members who have suffered the loss of a job or income in the aftermath of the COVID-19 crisis. Please look for a forthcoming email from the shul for information about how to request this support. All donations made to the Rabbi's Discretionary Fund will be dedicated to supporting our community in this way. Donations can be made at asbi.org/donate.
ASBI Small Business Task Force
Have a business and looking for ways to be successful through this crisis? Wondering what to do with employees, whether to take loans on, remote working best practices and how to explore alternate revenue models?

A number of people from our community have come forward to offer consulting services to serve as a soundboard for making tough decision with ASBI businesses owners. We can help come up with scenarios, crunch numbers, share what that means for your business, and what you can do to adapt.

If you'd like to engage with us, or volunteer as a consultant, please email joshuaklipman@gmail.com.

The inspiration for this initiative came from this shiur by Rabbi Jonathan Sacks.
