Did you Take Achrayus Yet?

[COMMUNICATED] The greatest sign of adulthood and maturity is being a ba’al achrayus. We teach our children to take responsibility for themselves, from making their bed to brushing their teeth, from cleaning up after themselves to behaving respectfully. Of course, we all view ourselves as responsible adults. But, when it comes to those in need in our community, did we take achrayus yet?

We apologize if we may sound like your mother or your mashgiach, that’s not our intention.

We take achrayus for our family, our children, our business and our shul. And now, we must step up and take achrayus for the hundreds of families Ahavas Tzedakah helps, and the hundreds more in our community who are still on a waiting list to be helped by Ahavas Tzedakah.

Can you imagine what it’s like to be told you need to wait for help to buy the basic needs for your family?

Can we say no to a mother who remains in critical condition after childbirth whose husband spends his days taking care of their large family and can no longer work? Or should we say no to the vibrant young father of six who suffered a debilitating injury and cannot work? How about to the many widows and single parents who struggle each month to make ends meet? The stories are endless – in fact, we currently have hundreds of families on our waiting list!

At this time, Ahavas Tzedakah assists 750 families, including 4,354 children, with an annual budget of $1.9 million and growing each month. That means 1 of every 20 families is helped by Ahavas Tzedakah! This is a staggering statistic. Every one of us knows someone who is being assisted.

For over 30 years Ahavas Tzedakah has been the premier Lakewood Tzedakah helping those members of our community in need. We all know how financial strain affects the community and how Ahavas Tzedakah helps so many.

Ahavas Tzedakah takes achrayus. Now it’s your turn to take achrayus too!

Partner with Ahavas Tzedakah today by joining their 9th Annual Evening With Ahavas Tzedakah on July 23, by taking Achrayus now.

  1. I happen to have a friend who called me last year before Yom Tov saying he simply didn’t have money to cover his expenses. He had a menial job, his wife did special ed but had recently cut her hours due to the recent birth of a baby, he needed food & clothing for his growing family. His teenage son’s suit was 2 sizes too small and he was NOT going to shul with his old suit. On top of that his daughters needed shoes, not because of the newest fashion, they were growing and their shoes simply didn’t fit. Or were ripped. So, I sent him To AHavas Tzedaka. Imagine the pain when they told him, Sorry – you called too close to Pesach and we can’t help you. He called me back mamesh crying. luckily, In the end they were able to help him, only through the generosity of the k’lal. Please, let us help Dr. Shanik and this holy tzedakah, because, I’m tel;ling you – the pain of someone, who humbles himself to call a Tzeddaka orginization and asks for help – & then gets rejected, is almost impossible to bear. May we always be on the giving side !!
