Giving Tzedakah on Tisha B'Av:
We are told in the Torah to turn our suffering as in Egypt into empathy for the vulnerable. We enact this on Tisha B'Av, the day we remember all our sufferings, by collecting donations for the following organizations:

  • Make the Road NY builds the power of immigrant and working class communities to achieve dignity and justice through legal and survival services, transformative education community organizing, and policy innovation. They are working specifically on the children separated from their parents at the border and now in NYC.
  • HIAS rescues people whose lives are in danger for being who they are. The help the most vulnerable refugees build new lives in safety and freedom, advocate for the protection of refugees, and assure that displaced people are treated with the dignity they deserve.

We are not holding services on Tisha B'Av morning, Sunday, July 22.
