Before we sit down to our YomTov table let’s make sure our family, friends and neighbours have what to eat too. So many are struggling at the moment.
There is a century old minhag to perform Kaparos before Rosh Hashana / Yom Kippur and distribute the proceeds to the needy.
This year, in accordance with DHS the community may not be performing this minhag with chickens. As such almost a hundred families will not receive the meat that they usually get in honour of Yomtov. This year there is a greater need than ever ! With the community’s help, last year we distributed chickens and meat to thousands of people.
So many people have been affected we could easily distribute twice as much as usual.
Join us in trying to distribute at least 1000 chickens to families for the upcoming Yomtovs.
Please help. Give until it hurts, and then keep giving until it stops hurting ! Let us go to Rosh Hashana confident when we declare that Teshuva, Tefilla and TZEDAKA will remove the gzeira from upon us.
Please consider donating one chicken per person in your household @ $18 each (a family of 5 = $90)
One box for a family @ $180 or meat for Tishrei @ $360
If you, or someone you know, could use assistance with the upcoming Yomtov expenses, please contact Rabbi Yoni Fisher at
