Shekels for Chesed – Helping Local Families In Need

This coming Shabbos we read Parshas Shekolim.  We don’t have a Bais Hamikdash to which to donate our Shekolim and our Rabbis tell us that today doing Chesed is in place of the Korban offerings.  Please join our “Shekels for Chesed” campaign.


The Leon Mayer Fund is many things for many families. It provides emergency assistance to those in need while maintaining their dignity. This includes newlyweds, families with single parents, and those who have recently lost their jobs.  We offer food & clothing subsidies and assist in many other ways.

The fund also helps families enjoy the holidays by assisting subsidize meals for thousands of families in numerous communities. Using community volunteers, the Leon Mayer Fund distributed food to those in need. In addition, the fund arranges many community-wide events/meals during the year.

Our Mark Ramer Chesed Center located in Hewlett is a beautiful community resource that is fully stocked with brand new items from clothing for men, women, and children, shoes, sneakers, baby items, household items, electronics, toys and so much more that goes to clients at zero cost to them.

Please help us in our mission of doing Chesed by giving your Shekels to Chesed.
