Zayin Adar is the yahrtzeit of Moshe Rabeinu and has traditionally been a time where communities gather to to raise awareness of the local chevra kadisha. Our Elizabeth/Hillside community has a strong chevra of dedicated men and women who are available in times of need, from burial to shiva and beyond. To support this important work, we are introducing the Chesed Shel Emes Fund of Greater Elizabeth. This fund will include the expenses of the chevra kadisha while also serving as an emergency assistance for families who are unable to meet funeral and burial expenses. 

This year we will be having our annual Zayin Adar event on Sunday night March 1, 2020 at 7:45 pm. We will be welcoming Rabbi Yosef Sharbat, Associate Rabbi and Sephardic Rav of Ahawas Achim B’nai Jacob and David in West Orange and Tanach teacher at the Joseph Kushner Hebrew Academy.

Please help support this important fund so that the chevra can be there for families in their time of need.  All sponsors will be recognized, including the loved one in whose memory the contribution is being made. 

Please RSVP for the event which will include dinner and refreshments. 

Thank you very much for your support,
