No need for added stress this summer, Misaskim will see you safely through the summer months with their newly expanded 84-page Gates of Chesed Safety Magazine. The magazine is set to be released next week and will be distributed to 100,000 families in the tri-state area. Gates of Chesed is comprised of gentle reminders, useful tips, and pertinent information that can be instrumental in safeguarding your family’s wellbeing this summer season. In addition to exploring the factors that most commonly lead to motor vehicle accidents r”l, this issue of Gates of Chesed clarifies newly enacted laws and how abiding by them can prevent a summer trip from metamorphosing into a traumatic experience. While summer beckons us outdoors, Gates of Chesed firmly establishes a set of safety practices that will create a secure perimeter for your family without impeding the summer experiences that rejuvenate us all each year. You will meet highly-acclaimed safety experts who will share advice on how to safeguard our children and young adults. Various other issues that impact our communities each summer are also brought into focus.
This current issue of Gates of Chesed marks the tenth year that Misaskim has promoted summer safety.
“The experience we’ve gained each year has enabled us to take a lead in awakening practical and vital, awareness”, says Misaskim.
“Be sure to include the Gates of Chesed in your summer plans and please let us know your thoughts too. As always, our objective is to serve you better”. TLS.
I feel uncomfortable with misaskim (a death society) teaching safety. It’s best if hatzala put this out.
Its ok as long as they r helping out what do u care??!!
unfortunately misaskim is spoken about amongst our people and media only after tragic instances, those heartrending tasks are only a fraction of their services. As their mission statement verifies “understanding tragedy with compassion. COORDINATING CRISIS WITH EXPERTISE”, the latter is where 24/7 of their time is occupied and as Rabbis Meyer and Weill’s personal mission is to stay out of the limelight more than possible, we and the media will NEVER know the quiet crisis situations that are constantly occuring in communities and by individuals across the globe, yes across the globe that come directly to misaskim’s hands.
R’ Yanky and R’ Meyer forgive me but this is where i disagree with your mission of staying out of the limelight, and feel the people should know and APPRECIATE ALL your efforts that go unrealized by the masses.(just realize you’ll rarely find their name and pics out there, they honestly pass the credit onto their volunteeers fully as if it is ran by a board of 25 members, while in truth every breath of these 2 individuals is misaskim)
to list a few: When a flight was delayed and being held over shabbos in Rome with plenty of yidden it was misaskim that got all shabbos arrangements and food taken care of.
When 3 families were involved in an accident coming back from Toronto the night of motzei pesach last year misaskim was the helpline that was called and coordinated it all.
When a brooklyn family’s member was injured in yerushalayim in a shooting it was misaskim that handled the crisis upto driving family until the plane yes literally skipping the checkin process and directly onto plane.
When officials have issues with individuals from frum communities it is the misaskim expertise that they learned to trust and confide in, and therefore misaskim wil get the call from all governmental agencies that someone from a jewish community has gotten himself into trouble. and unfortunately these are occurences that happen around the clock at different points of the world. ranging from correctional facilities to local police departments across the US, from border contol to custom officials, “you name them, they name misaskim”.
When they couldn’t bare watching a family in a time of simcha where a member would’nt attend due to illness, misaskim opened their gemach and did live hookups to hospitals and homes(then correctional facilities as well), over time they gave the job to mekimi to run, for the obvious reason of no time in their hands unfortunately due to greater impacting crisis that come to their door, not because more fatal accidents.
Then there are the unfortunate tragic stories.
The reason for this lengthy comment is not because I’m involved, but simply have tuned into their efforts and have tuned into the ignorance that dominates amongst my fellow friends about misaskim’s services as well, the only reason these 2 selfless individuals allowed their name to get out was for fundraising purposes and people that have been serviced by them have spread their name as well, that said, I’m a simple citizen b”h never needed them and only afforded a $36 raffle ticket which is currently during campaign, may this post help raise some more for them and we should not them throughout klal yisroel
