Zichron Ephraim Shimon Fund: Aims to assist new parents; Launched in memory of Monsey child struck and killed by vehicle

Submitted by family: What is there to say? This still feels so raw and unbelievable. On August 6th, Ephraim Shimon Szydlow, a gorgeous, happy fifteen month old boy, was hit by a taxi in Monsey and passed away.

Friends of the family have joined together to create the Zichron Ephraim Shimon Fund. The purpose of the fund is to help parents who cannot afford necessities for their newborn.

If we raise $50,000, we can jump-start the fund and provide a true chessed to an estimated 75 Jewish families and help them celebrate their simcha knowing that they will have access to baby furniture, baby supplies, and other baby paraphernalia.

We have partnered with Rabbi Chaim Schabes, Rov of Kneses Yisrael. This partnership will ensure that the money raised is handled and appropriated carefully.

We can’t imagine a better way to honor baby Ephraim’s life.
