The Shifra and Puah organization, which provides assistance to new mothers in the community, will be celebrating 4 years with a dinner event.
The organization, which was founded 4 years ago by Nshei Chabad for Hebrew speakers in Crown Heights, was eventually expanded to include many families in the neighborhood who are in need of support and assistance after giving birth.
In the past four years, the organization has helped hundreds of new mothers with nutritious breakfasts delivered for two weeks, Shabbos meals, gifts, cleaning help, babysitting and driving. Bais Rivkah students volunteer to help with older children as well, giving the new mothers a chance to rest.
The organization has plans to continue to expand and grow its operations to continue to help many more families.
“We hope to add more hours to the amount of cleaning help we provide, as well as to start subsidizing visits to a rest home for new mothers,” the organization’s director said. “We ask the community to come together to help our own by participating in our upcoming dinner and raffle.”
The event will take place Wednesday evening, Rosh Chodesh Shvat – January 21st at Lubavitch Yeshiva.
A rare $20 bill given by the Rebbe in a unique designer frame will be raffled off at the event. A donation of 12 payments of $36 each will enter you in the raffle. Those who cannot attend the dinner and want to buy tickets to support the organization, contact Michla (347) 405-3431 or Shlomit (917) 753-1148.
