Excerpts from Eli, someone who was in close contact with Aleph during his time in prison:
As you all know I recently got out of prison. I have always known about the tremendous work that aleph does but through my time in prison I had a chance to experience first-hand the incredible work that they do.
It’s one thing to hear about how they organize kosher food for inmates, it’s another thing to be starving in a holding cell and suddenly be given a kosher meal orchestrated by aleph.
It’s one thing to hear about how they care about inmates well-being, it’s another to have no communication while traveling for 48hrs and aleph leaving no stone unturned to find my whereabouts and put my wife at ease.
Even the small things aleph is there for you. Spending countless hours on the phone and email to calm the wives and ensure minor issues are resolved.
It’s one thing to know you’re going to be provided with kosher food, it’s another to have shmurah matzah, kearas, marror and all other pesach needs, lulav, esrog, succah etc etc provided.
Spending time day in and day out with no real yiddishkeit and then to have aleph come down once a month and during the chaggim to provide inspiration and moral support is a shot of light In darkness.
And for those who need it, once a month aleph facilitates a prison wives call for them to gain chizzuk from one another. In order for aleph to be able to continue their monumental work it is crucial for their auction fundraiser to be successful. I can personally attest to the validity of this cause and urge you all to donate In whatever capacity you can.
Aleph Institute cares for the needs of the most forgotten demographics in our society.
Our country’s heroes, the men and women of the United States Armed Forces, count thousands of Jews among their ranks. The military invests in providing them the best material means to succeed in their mission of protecting freedom. Aleph is here to provide the spiritual support to our Jewish brothers and sisters in uniform.
At the same time, in the spirit of Jewish teaching that no soul is ever lost, and no-one will be left behind, the Aleph Institute counsels and advocates for people languishing in the correctional system, and their families who are struggling to cope, assisting them in repairing their lives.
