Tomchei Shabbos Yom Tov Deliveries Spike

PHOTO: Tomchei Shabbos – the organization at the forefront for local needy families – has seen an unfortunate jump in families requiring assistance for Yom Tov.

This Tishrei alone, they are providing for 450 families, Tomchei Shabbos says, an increase of over 50 families from last year.

During their pre-Yom Tov deliveries and pickups last night, families received over 12 cases of food ranging from chicken, meat and fish as well as the traditional honey cake.

The cost of the food is a staggering $450,000.

    Plus each time you visit your favorite grocery store you can donate much needed funding to them

  • Aniye Ircha says:

    I love giving Tzedakah especially before Rosh Hashana. I just know that before I give anywhere else I take care of my primary obligation which is local aniyim /Tomchei Shabbos.

    Keep up the great work.

  • I love tomchei says:

    Once again tomchei shabbos steps up to the plate to fill the plates of the poor. Thank you Rav Trainer!

  • Not An Accountant says:

    Is that $450,000? It looks to me you wrote $450,0000, which is really written as $4,500,000 which I highly double is the case. I therefore think it’s a typo on an extras “0”.
