Lakewood Jewish grandchildren of Holocaust survivors today did their part in welcoming Afghan refugees by sending meals packages and supplies for the families.
When Reb Alexander Rapaport of Masbia reached out to his brother Berish of Yapchik telling him about the refugees, Berish immediately offered assistance. He reached out to U.S. Air Force Reserve and Deputy Mayor of Lakewood Menashe Miller to see if he could help facilitate food packages, which he immediately began to coordinate.
This afternoon, boxes of supplies and food prepared at Yapchik in Lakewood were shipped off to Joint Base MDL in New Jersey, where tens of thousands of refugees are currently housed.
Menashe Miller, a grandson of European immigrants, as well as Rockland County Legislator, Aron Weider, a grandson of two Holocaust survivors, marked all the boxes with messages which read, “With Love from the Jewish community.”
