JNet, an organization which pairs working people with Torah teachers, is launching this week a phone-a-thon asking Crown Heights residents to volunteer their time or donate money.
For 5 years now, the division of Merkos L’Inyonei Chinuch has setup almost 2,000 people to learn once a week on the phone – making that over 25,000 sessions a year.
On Tuesday and Wednesday this week they will be calling Lubavitchers in Brooklyn and elsewhere to sponsor a match for $18 a month. Any and every donation will be entered in a raffle to win cash prizes of up to $10,000.
Crown Heights residents Aryeh Fuss, Yisroel Shimon Kalmenson, Mendy Dalfin, Tzirl Goldman, Rivkie Brownstein and Margula Roumani who have been volunteering their time have filmed a promo clip.
