Misaskim update regarding Motzei Pesach

Misaskim: In accordance with our daas Torah, R’ Yechezkel Roth shlita, aveilim should continue to sit separately, and nichum aveilim should continue to be by phone. However, Misaskim will be providing shiva chairs only, with the following guidelines.

1. All shiva chairs will need to be picked up Motzei Yom Tov between the hours of 9:15 PM and 11:00 PM, and brought back after shiva.
2. All neighborhoods will have a designated spot to pick up and drop off the shiva chairs, where representatives of aveilim will be able to pick up the shiva chairs.
3. If your neighborhood is not listed below, and you are in need of shiva chairs, please call the Misaskim hotline after Yom Tov at 718 854 4548.
4. In order to ensure the shiva chairs are returned, all shiva chairs will only be released with a refundable $25 cash deposit, per shiva chair, which will be returned in full immediately when shiva chairs are brought back.
5. Our volunteers will be manning the pickup spots. There is no authorization to release anything besides shiva chairs, so please refrain from asking volunteers to make exceptions.
6. All shiva chairs need to be returned on Wednesday, April 22, 2020, between the hours of 7:00 PM and 9:00 PM.
