Geshem Fund Needs Your Help
Every week you may see a section in our email about the Geshem Fund. Many people turn to the Geshem Fund for help, some on a regular basis and others when unique circumstances arise. We make an effort to address BE”H each request. Recently the fund has been called on at a much higher level than average. Additionally, the High Holiday season is one of the two times a year, the other being Pesach, that the fund makes distributions to families to enhance their holidays. Please consider helping the Geshem Fund continue to meet its goals of helping those who turn to us. We want to BE”H be able to answer the call when it comes in.
