Due to the current pandemic and the increased number of Jewish people who have passed away in recent weeks,
The Chevra Kadisha of Queens and Long Island and The Hebrew Free Burial are in desperate need of taleisim for burials.
If you, or anyone you know has an old or unused Tallis that you can to donate for this incredible mitzvah of honoring the deceased, please do so as soon as possible.
There are two ways you can donate it:
- Drop off at 136-06 71st Road in Kew Garden Hills by placing in the labeled plastic bin on the front porch (this way there is no need for any physical proximity)
- Mail it to: Mount Richmond Cemetery, 420 Clarke Avenue, Staten Island, NY 10306
