Teaneck Storeowners Help Israel’s Leading Lifesaving Organization

In solidarity with Israel during these difficult times, 18 Teaneck businesses teamed up last week to raise thousands for United Hatzalah of Israel. Participating businesses include: The Purple Bow, On The Table, Chopstix, Poppy’s Bagels/Pizza and TCBY, Brooklyn’s, Privet, Links, EJ’s Place, Rock N’ Roll Sushi & Noodle Bar, ETC Steakhouse, Schnitzel Plus, Gotham Burger, Garden State Jewelers, The Wig Washers, Rubin & Dombeck LLC Attorney at Law, Cedar Market, Teaneck Doghouse, and Berkshire Abstract & Title Agency LLC.

A portion of all sales from the local shops and restaurants along Queen Anne Road and West Englewood benefited United Hatzalah, Israel’s largest independent and fully volunteer emergency medical first response organization. United Hatzalah’s network of 3,000 trained volunteers across Israel work around the clock to provide free emergency medical services in emergencies and terror attacks. Combining customized GPS technology and medically equipped motorcycles, United Hatzalah’s average response time is three minutes.

“When all the stores, customers and Teaneck came together in supporting Hatzalah, the support becomes so  much greater in numbers,” said Rachel Kupfer, owner of housewares shop On the Table. Along with Rebecca Katz of The Purple Bow, the two decided to organize the fundraiser. “We wanted to raise money for Hatzalah because they are the first to respond. Hopefully, one day we will never need them, but for now, they need more help, equipment and manpower to keep being the first to respond in times of terror. This is the smallest way we here in Teaneck can help,” said Kupfer.
