Lakewood Gearing Up For Day of Giving

By: L. Halevi. What comes to mind when you think of the month of Tishrei? Shofar? Teshuva? Sukkah? Lulav?

Most people will probably say one of the above items. For many people though, these items don’t even come to mind, as what they have on their minds is food- or the lack thereof. Yes, for too many families in our midst, the overwhelming expenses that come along with a month of Yomim Tovim leave them stressing over how they will put food on their table, how they will provide for their families, and there is no room for thoughts of additional Yom Tov items.

For this reason, Tomchei Shabbos of Lakewood, the organization that is intimately involved with the needs of the men, women and children of Lakewood, has launched a vital #TomcheiTishrei Campaign, where $1 Million must be raised in a 36 hour period to ensure that every family in Lakewood can be secure in knowing that their pantries and cupboards will be filled for the duration of the month of Tishrei.

“Without Tomchei Shabbos, the month of Tishrei doesn’t begin” says one of the leaders of the organization familiar with the day-to-day operations of the Mosad. “Only after we provide for their families the basic foods they need to survive, can they even begin to think about clothing, Esrogim and the like” he says. It’s very simple, and easy to understand, that without food on the table, nothing else really matters.

The $1 Million dollars will be raised by the support of the greater Lakewood community as well as the generosity of some remarkable matchers who are quadrupling every donation given to this campaign. Every $150 donation becomes $600, and every $250 becomes $1,000. It’s not a question of if the goal will be reached, it must be reached; our friends, neighbors and relatives are relying on it for Simchas Yom Tov.
