Thank You for Quick Response To Talleisim Need

Last week, Hebrew Free Burial Association put out a request for talleisim on TeaneckShuls and on HFBA’s Facebook Page. Since then, HFBA has received over 1500 talleisim from all over the United States, but most from Teaneck, Bergenfield, New Milford, Englewood, Passaic, Clifton and Riverdale.

Outside of our area, we’ve been inspired by local individuals who coordinated collections in their communities. We’ve seen people drive hours to our Staten Island and New Milford drop-off locations. We’ve heard moving stories about some of the talleisim that were donated.

Since March 1, HFBA has buried 182 indigent Jews; over 100 have died from COVID-19. We’ve worked around the clock to provide proper kavod hameis to those in need. But we still need help. If you’re in a position to donate, your gift will be greatly appreciated. You can donate at www.hebrewfreeburial.org/donate.

On behalf of everyone at Hebrew Free Burial Association, thank you.
