πŸ‘ πŸ‘ πŸ‘ Thank you to Sari Garfinkle, the Chesed committee and all those who made beautiful cards to our sisters and brothers in the military πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ 🍎 🍯

β€œThe United Orthodox Synagogues member made and collected more than 100 handmade Rosh Hashanah cards that will be added to care packages sent to soldiers in celebration of the upcoming Jewish New Year.

β€œPeople don’t realize how much sacrifice goes into the service, and when you are in a place where there is no Jewish community, or in a country that is actively hostile to people of our faith, this is like a lifeline for Jewish soldiers,” Garfinkle told the JHV”
