Tomchei Shabbos: We Need You for One Evening

tomchei shabbosBy: L. Halevi. Every day of every week of every month, throughout the year, there are hundreds of local families who need Tomchei Shabbos.

Tomchei Shabbos needs you for one evening.

Whether it’s to provide the family with a Monday night supper, give the kids a daily snack or for the Shabbos Seudos to be dignified, Tomchei Shabbos provides these Mishpachos with the basic necessities, and much more, to allow them to keep their heads high and their families together.

To keep doing this, Tomchei Shabbos needs you for one evening.

The hundreds of Lakewood volunteers who give up their time, weekly and monthly, to put together packages and discreetly make deliveries around town, Tomchei Shabbos is on their minds around the year.

Tomchei Shabbos needs you to have them in mind for one evening.

The unimaginable budget that has to be raised by Tomchei Shabbos in order to be able to purchase and provide so much food for so many families is an almost impossible feat, yet it is on the minds of the directors of the Mosad literally at all times, and they take no break from their indefatigable Avodas Hakodesh.

Tomchei Shabbos needs you to feel the burden for one evening.

Tomchei Shabbos, or as it truly should be called, Tomchei Every Day, does not rest. Rain, snow, cold, heat, no matter what the weather may be outside and no matter what other challenges or obstacles may be in the way, the deliveries never stop. People have to eat. Families must be cared for. People’s dignity and respect are first and foremost and cannot take a break. Ever.

Tomchei Shabbos is relying on your presence at the dinner, for one evening.

This Motzaei Shabbos, the annual Tomchei Shabbos dinner will take place in Bais Faiga. This event is not “just another dinner”. This event is not one that can be left for other people to attend. This momentous occasion is the time and place for all of Lakewood to unite and proclaim that Every Family in our community counts. It’s an opportunity to proclaim that you recognize what Tomchei Shabbos does, the extent of how far-reaching their remarkable deeds are and that your participation for a few hours is your show of support for them for an entire year.

Tomchei Shabbos is vital to Lakewood and Lakewood’s participation for one evening is vital to Tomchei Shabbos.

Don’t just nod your head and think about it; proclaim loudly and proudly to your family and friends that you will be there for Tomchei Shabbos this Motzaei Shabbos. Every family in Lakewood is a Tomchei Shabbos family, and you don’t miss a family event!

Be there for the food, be there for the speeches, be there for the musical entertainment, or be there L’shem Shomayim…just be there for the evening!
