PHOTOS: Hundreds enjoy Misameach Erev Pesach event

by T.H. All know the saying, “The biggest help is to stay out of the way.” Uttered by so many parents in the hectic weeks before Yom Tov, oftentimes that is really all the parents need; a slight break from the busy family life, so they could prepare for Pesach.

But what if the child is terminally ill? The parents have been in and out of the hospital for months. The siblings are overwhelmed, the parents perhaps unable to cope. This Pesach won’t make itself, and these children won’t entertain themselves.

Erev Pesach, 5777. While the rest of the world was in a whirlwind, Misameach volunteers were doing what they do best: throwing a party. Hundreds of children attended, with dozens of Misameach staff members supervising. Parents dropped off their children for the day, where they were treated to a hot lunch, prize raffles, a spellbinding story-teller Rabbi Ferber, indoor rides, a drum interactive show, arts and crafts, a full live band by Eli Schonfeld Productions featuring Benny G., Mendel Bruzo, Shmuly Zions, and Yitzy Zions including singers Uri Davidi and Moshe Tischler. There was a fire exhibit by the Lakewood Fire Dept arranged by Mr. Wolf and Personalized ID’s were given to every child by the Ocean County Sherrif Department arranged by the NJCA. Thanks to the coordinators Avi Gindi and Chani Epstein.
