After the recent road accident involving our community members, the UMJCA Security Committee would like to remind everyone of the following safety precautions:
1) Always walk on the sidewalk not the road.
2) If there is no sidewalk, then walk single file facing oncoming traffic.
3) Wear light-colored clothing as well as a yellow belt and/or orange safety jacket. If raining then wear the white
raincoats, more of which are on order.
4) If crossing a main road, then only cross where there is a traffic light.
5) At night, plan your trip so that it is the safest route. This may mean going to the closest synagogue. When leaving by car after Yom Kippur, take your time. Do not rush. The minute you save by rushing makes no difference after 25 hours. Remember just because you can see a car does not mean that the driver can see you. UMJCA Security Committee.

Sponsor for Chesed Opportunity:

We are seeking this month’s sponsor to donate $350 for the MYC-Ronald McDonald House Partnership. A coed group of young adults from our community will volunteer their time to cook a hearty dinner for the visitors and families of the Ronald McDonald house, which is an organization that shelters sick, unprivileged patients at the local North Shore LIJ Hospital who can’t afford to stay in the hospital for their extended treatment. 100% of the donation will go towards the materials and ingredients needed to cook the meal for roughly 90 visitors. If you are interested in sponsoring, please reach out to Kevin Hakimi (516-770-4393) or Nathan Kashizadeh (917-674-6456)
