Thank you for posting this!

It’s beautiful to see how people are reaching out to help each other during this stressful time. In addition, different groups (who,during normal times might be rivals or business competitors) are working together to accomplish this. And they’re doing this for free. (Okay, it does generate good feelings about them, but I don’t believe this alone would be enough compensation.) Some of my grandchildren have already taken advantage of these programs.

And if word gets out about the Jewish programs, kids who normally might just go to after-school and Sunday Jewish schools will be exposed to Torah true education.

When you push off your mortgage for 3 months and three months worth is now due at the end of the 90-day period. How does that help?
Because that is what Freedom mortgage is offering right now ..
they service many mortgages across the United States including here in Queens..
It’s almost like they didn’t get the memo from the governor about this issue….
Dan, any ideas?
