In response to name withheld:
Over the past 30 years, Tomchei Shabbos of Bergen County has prided itself on never turning down any family in financial need. Families who currently work with Project Ezrah or other agencies, or a local rabbi who can attest to their ongoing need, are not required to submit additional financial paperwork to Tomchei Shabbos. However, there are families who have been receiving Tomchei Shabbos for an extended period of time and the original referring organizations have not been able to reevaluate their current financial status. It is for this reason that we have asked them to submit some proof of need.
We try our best to be sensitive to the needs of our recipient families. At the same time, we take very seriously our responsibility to use the funds that we collect from the community for the correct purpose.
We are extremely grateful to everyone in our community who has supported Tomchei throughout the years. May the community continue to come together and may we all be blessed with prosperity and health.
