Letter from Mrs. Rochel Frid

Dear Editor of The Lakewood Scoop,

Shalom U’Bracha,

I hope this letter finds you all well. It has been an extremely challenging six months since the last time we had contact. This year on Rosh Hashanah we will all add a heartfelt prayer for an end to this מגפה.

The pandemic presented a great challenge to us in ensuring that R’ Dovid was kept safe. As he is fully cognizant and follows the news, he actually gave instructions on how to proceed with his care. As much as two weeks before Purim, he requested that only his caregivers and myself enter his room and later that we wear masks. Baruch Hashem, he is doing well.

The pressure was great at times and there have been many extra expenses. I don’t know how we would have survived without the funds that came in from the campaign you and other Anshei Chesed ran for us on Purim. It was a literally a miracle.

Once again, we have put together a fundraiser using the ChesedFund platform. We would greatly appreciate it if you would run the campaign in your publication, as much support comes from your Heilige city.

Here is the link:

Wishing you and the entire staff a healthy, peaceful and prosperous New Year full of blessings.
