מי כעמך ישראל - Post your stories here
« on: March 30, 2020, 01:19:09 AM »
Lets talk about all the absolutely wonderful things that are being done in Klal Yisroel right now.

From the hundreds of volunteers to fill in for understaffed tomchei shabboses, to the $100k raised in 4 days to help a grocery store support families for pesach by customers adding just a little extra to their bill to help out another family.

From TorahAnytime being slow due to the overwhelming amount of shiurim being listened to online, to the top jewish entertainers all making time to brighten our kids day.

From our educators working hard to provide our kids with an education under incredibly trying circumstances, to a WhatsApp group that is finishing Tehillim multiple times daily as people continuously take time out of their day to daven for others.

From Dan and others for putting together an incredible starting pesach list, to everyone here who continually posts when something that people might need is in stock.

I will say it again מי כעמך ישראל and thank you Hashem for the opportunity to be part of such a wonderful nation.

Please share your stories here!

The Bnei Akiva in Israel have a project where each kid gets an older person to call (75+) each day to see how they are doing. They are also asked to speak to the person about life stories and to write it down. After this is all over they will be putting a book out with all the stories. I think this is amazing!

Hamaspik (and others) for sending over $200 worth of toys for children with special needs!

Frum nurses who have set up a chat and taken it upon themselves to keep families apprised of loved ones who are admitted to Hospitals when the families have no other access.
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

Wow! As overworked as they all are they still are taking the time out to do this!

Teachers calling their students individually and giving classes even though their own kids are home with them. My kids were touched -Kudos to them!

People who can negotiate sponsorship of this are doing double chessed, supporting both Hatzalah and struggling restaurants (someone else’s livelihood, which is the highest level of tzedakah)

My elderly relatives are isolated and a local hotline (Zeh Lozeh) had a kind volunteer deliver their necessities in a gracious, safe and efficient manner. Multiply this by a gaziliion, I’m sure they’re not the only beneficiaries.
