"Chessed Ve'Emet" is involved in a number of Chessed Projects. Our latest global project is centred on helping those returning to Judaism to be able to afford the necessary items they may suddenly need when becoming observant. No Jew should ever lack the financial ability to be able to purchase those necessary items, though it happens that many new "returnees" find themselves strapped for cash when it comes to purchasing their necessary requirements.
This week, being Shavua HaSefer - Book Week - with book prices being highly discounted, we are extending the opportunity to those interested, to take part in making their money go further by aiding those in need of Jewish books, to be able to make purchases this very week.
If you'd like to find our more or take part in this project or any other, see:
Baalei Teshuvah Mitzvah Fund for more info. This is truly a special opportunity to help those not fortunate enough to own their own books, to be able to do so.
In amongst books required for Baalei Teshuva, we are assisting
- a Baal Teshuva who is isolated from the Jewish community and living in Europe. For this BT, helping him to have a library is a big chesed and fulfills the verse, "for out of Tzion will go Torah and the word of Hashem from Jerusalem"
- an Oleh Chadash who has come closer to Torah and is becoming more involved in his Torah learning
- a Chatan who is Baal Tshuva and needs appropriate sforim for his new home.
Thank you for your support.
