They are looking for from-home help to quickly turn materials into finished PPE. Professional tailors, seamstresses, cutters, die cutters pattern makers, milliners, props fabricators, fabric merchandisers, designers, production assistants, coordinators, drapers, manufacturers, graphic artists, stitchers, dyers, website builders, furniture upholsterers, marketing professionals, painters, fundraisers, puppet builders, weavers, metal workers, drafters, and 3D printers can all help. Volunteer your time, or donate at or at

4) Closing Message
As we begin a new week in this pandemic, my thoughts return to those who are at home with abusers - physical, sexual, emotional, verbal or otherwise.  Please know that we see you.  The JCADA, Shalom Task Force, and NYC's 24/7 helpline, 1-800-621-HOPE, are here.  Your Bayit clergy are here.  Let's continue to check in on friends and neighbors - sometimes that one call helps someone get the help they need.  If we are feeling stress, let's get the help we need to be healthy and safe.  In the spirit of this past Shabbat's message of "v'ahavta l'reiakha kamokha", loving our neighbors, let's be as loving as we can to each other.    (You can see the closing message in video format here.)
Reminder to all to take good care of ourselves and each other.  Try to do something specific today that strengthens you, and something else that strengthens someone else.
May it be a good day and a good week,
Rav Steven, Rav Ezra, Rabbanit Bracha, Rabba Sara and Rav Avi
