NECHAMA at Temple Beth El:
On Sunday, November 11 we received a contingent of volunteers brought to us by an amazing organization: “Nechama – Jewish Response to Disaster” They came with a trailer full of equipment and immediately went to work, removing bucket after bucket after bucket of debris from the flood. They helped our Rabbi sort through the books to separate the holy texts that must be buried. They pried doors open, removed water and damaged furniture, and filled two huge dumpsters. They promised to return – unfortunately the work is far from finished. Their help was invaluable and their dedication most inspiring, and above all, they brought us Nechama – which in Hebrew means consolation- in a time of great distress.
We deeply thank the Nechama team and the volunteers that came with them from Temple Emanu-El of Closter, NJ and from Bonim-Builders. We say to them Todah Rabbah – Thank you so so so much…and Lehitraot, see you again soon!!!
