Shomrei Shares 2012

If there be among you a needy person, one of your kinsmen, in any of your settlements, in the land that the Lord your G-d is giving you, do not harden your heart and shut your hand against your needy kinsman. Rather you must open your hand and lend him sufficient for whatever he needs.” Deuteronomy 15:7-8

Each year, the congregants of Shomrei Emunah adopt needy families during the holiday season.  This year, we are supporting 9 families, one for each night of Chanukah and one for the Shamash.

Please gift wrap your gifts and code with the number that is assigned to each family and what the gift is.  Please also note specifically who in the family the gift is intended for. The families have listed what they need. Since we are purchasing collectively, don’t be bound by only their request. Free to think creatively and warmly!

Place the wrapped gifts in the boxes marked with the code number associated with the specific family.  Gifts must be new items.  

Families often request gift certificates for food or gift certificates to stores like Target, clothing, household items, toiletries, books or toys for the children.  Listed are their requests, but anything is appreciated. No item is too small! Used clothing is not acceptable.

You can provide Shomrei Scrip for the families as well. Scrip is a great way to give to Shomrei Shares. Here is how Scrip works. Purchase scrip-100% of your contribution is given to a Shomrei Shares family or families and the store gives Congregation Shomrei Emunah 5% back. So you are actually giving twice, once to the families and once to Shomrei Emunah. To purchase Script, simply write a check to “Shomrei Emunah” and leave it in the office for Renata Worob.  Any questions on scrip, please contact Renata Worob at 917-346-4761.

Gifts must be dropped off no later than 4:00 pm on December 19th.

Thank you for reaching out to the families.

Any questions regarding Shomrei Shares, contact Amanda Seeff-Charny (973) 509-0437.
