from the left  on the top. Click Add Yahrzeit. This will take you to Create New Yahrzeit. The fields are self-explanatory.

 volunteers of all ages
to visit socially isolated
seniors in Westchester.
Volunteers are matched
 with seniors based on
common interests and
 availability. If interested,
 please contact
Monica Aboodi
at 914-450-2165 or mgaboodi@yahoo.com.  
 
If you would like to get rid of:
* All clothing
* Linens
 Get rid of the mess
and get a mitzvah!
In addition to a mitzvah,
 you will receive a valuable
tax deduction as well!
We are collecting these items for an  
organization called
KUPATH EZRAH
OF ROCKLAND COUNTY
.
All items should be clean
 and in good shape,

up-to-date and
 still fashionable.
Remember: you are
giving these things to
 a 'close relative,' and it
costs the organization
 money to sort
and dispose of poor
 merchandise.
Currently Scott Greenbaum is not able to take your donations to Monsey. Volunteers would be appreciated. Please contact Scott if you are able to help: 
914-723-1797 ;
