  1. These people are mamish amazing.
    If you met Mr. Werther in shul over Yom Tov, you were not able to tell a thing. He had the same smile and demeanor as always. Absolutely amazin.
    May they know of no more tzar, only simcha.

  2. The tent is to acomidate the large crowd and misaskim they were on scene right away to assisit in many ways!! U should never need there services but misaskim is the true Chesed shel emes

    The tent is to acomidate(accomodate) the large crowd and misaskim they were on scene right away to assisit(assist) in many ways!! U should never need there(thier) services but misaskim is the true Chesed shel emes( hashem is the true chesed shel emes,not misaskim .)

  4. Its nice that misaskim helps by supplying the chairs and so forth but the tent was the idea of a few friends of the family who worked during chol hamoed to come up with the idea to rent the tent, lights, and many other items and logistics that were needed.

    I will say that allthough it was chol hamoed and many of the various organizations volunterd were out of town, all resources from bikur cholim, chai lifeline and misaskim worked in a unified manner as a team

    Bikur cholim and chai lifline was there asap to help organize with the family many issues that needed to be addressed before the levaya, after the levaya and now during shiva

  5. Excuse Me! We are not just tables and chairs! Can’t get in to too many details on this site but we were on scene right away with much work for us to do on scene and then dealing with authorities! Our guys do this totaly volunteer! They were there till the wee hours of the morning helping out and holding command

  6. Misaskim. Chill out!!!
    we know the great work you do with the clean up but like I stated all people from all organizations came together to assist each other even with the clean up, or with getting involved in areas not specific to their organizations programs. Everyone helped each other.
    If you want to “hold command” ok??? Problem with organizations are that they get sensative who takes credit and this sometimes getz in the way of allowing other organizations to work together.

    What I wanted to state was how everyone worked together.
    But don’t take credit for things you did not do. Like the tent.

  7. After speaking with the head of misaskim lkwd who told me that it was not misaskim lkwd who set up the tent. And they do not take credit for it! Also he mentioned that vol were on hand to assit with the clean up and they sent a few home due to having enough help from the community !keep up the great work! Ps yitzy is the best!

  8. Like I said various organizations worked together. That is the beutiful point I have been trying to communicate. Yes yitzy,mutty, yehudah, osher and many more wotked so hard that night

  9. while were dishing out compliments lets not leave out the oldest organization in lakewood which you all forgot to mention the LAKEWOOD CHEVRA KADISHA
    who were down at the hospital as soon as the bochur arrived to deal with “official issues” that arise in such cases and were their at scene as well as the house dealing with the all details of and arranging kevura etc kudos to reb bein p, reb moshe d e,reb nissi g from lakewood chevra kadisha who were their thruout as well as matan beseser .. who worked the phones from out of state dealing with issues from afar

  10. i am a close friend of the Werther Family. The tent was put up by friends of the family, (thank you Viggy and whoever else was involved)
    There is a heater in there, and it is quiet comfortable.
    The amount of food that people are sending is truly unbeleivable… Mi Kiamcha Yisrael. Feeding 20 (12 Aveilim and their wives ) people is no easy task, and the way so many people offered their assistance is truly amazing. Misaksim, Chai LIfeline, and Bikur Cholim are really there for everything the werthers need. They sent over a fridge to accomodate the food, etc… the list goes on.
    May Hashem send a Nechama to the family.

  11. you are 1000% correct. The chevra Kadisha are par excellance. I could not do what they do and they are always there for the kehilla.

    Also Thank you to Menashe Miller, Rabbi Rozansky and Rabbi Gissenger, Viggy. I am sure there are many others who need to be mentioned.
