The Hebrew Free Burial Society
Since April 1, Hebrew Free Burial Association has arranged 98 burials, mostly COVID-19 victims. They were among the most impoverished and vulnerable of our community — American born and Russians, Holocaust survivors, the suddenly unemployed and impoverished. The youngest we buried was 37. The costs of these increased number of burials and of protective personal equipment for our chevra kadisha and staff has become a crushing burden. If you can contribute in any way, however small or large, please join in this final mitzvah of loving kindness. Your support is urgently needed. www.hebrewfreeburial.org/donate/
Hebrew Free Burial Association is also in need of Talleisim, regardless of condition, Kosher or non-kosher. If you have any you would like to donate, please mail them to: Hebrew Free Burial Association, c/o Mount Richmond Cemetery, 420 Clarke Avenue, Staten Island, NY 10306.
