UMJCA Announcement: Reopening Minyanim Notice and Guidelines

June 2, 2020
Dear Community Members, It is with a happy heart and gratitude to Hashem that the Central Board is now looking to start the process in gradually opening our Minyans again, this Sunday, June 7th. As we always look out for the well-being of our community, we will be erring on the side of caution and reopening in a slow, limited and monitored process.
As a phase 1 approach, we will be starting with morning Shacharit services only from Sunday through Friday, with three minyans each morning in limited capacity as per executive order.

Central Board Announcement

J u n e 4 , 2 0 2 0
As we witness the demonstrations and protests taking place in cities across our nation, it is our obligation to address the troubling events that have unfolded in recent days. As aminority community, we stand in solidarity with those who have been marginalized and unfairly persecuted. With a long history of Jewish victimization, we should be the first to denounce injustice,murder, persecution, racism and oppression. We should be the first to be promoting the values of humanity, human dignity, the sanctity of life, as well as the values of truth and justice. At the same time, we condemn any violent, illegal or destructive acts that have been perpetrated in the wake of this tragedy. And we deeply respect and appreciate the efforts of law enforcement officers at the local, state and federal levels, who are putting their lives on the line to keep the citizens of this country safe. Jewish values have instilled in us to be tolerant of differences, treat all with respect, be compassionate and always do the most we can to help our community. We keep all the families that have lost loved ones in our prayers, and we look forward to all Americans standing together again united with one another. הנה מה טוב ומה נעים שבת אחים גם יחד . Behold how good and how pleasing it is for people to live together in unity. Respectfully, UMJCA Central Board. Click Here for the Official Central Board Letter

NEW Central Board Update – May 21, 2020

Dear Community members: First and foremost, we hope you and your family are doing well and have been staying safe during these past few months. As always, we would like to extend our gratitude for your generous support of the United Mashadi Jewish Community of America, and wish you and your family success, health and happiness.
As you are aware, our centers have now been closed since March, and we have put all our efforts into minimizing our operating expenses as best as possible. As we prepare for our potential re-opening, we will need everybody's support and cooperation, as the process will take time and will be new to everyone. In order to get our centers back open, with our staff and security (even if not at full capacity), we will be counting on all past pledges to be paid, as well as new Kavods, so as to sustain the increase in expenses. We kindly ask that any unpaid balances, if possible, can be paid in full. In addition, any new donations would be greatly appreciated in any denominations. Your current statement will be arriving by mail in the coming days. If you have any questions regarding your existing account, please contact the synagogue office at 516-487-3636.

Past payments as well as new pledges can be made through the following methods:

a) sending a check to Shaare Shalom

b) through the Venmo app: @UMJCA

c) through our online fundraising page: www.gofundme.com/f/e7ytj-umjca-operations

Sincerely, UMJCA Central Board

tzedakah box

Virtual Sedaka Box

Dear community members.
B”H We have a beautiful custom of giving Sedaka every day in our community. Community members who would attend Minyanim would give whatever amount they want, even a dollar a day during Shacharit and/or Mincha, which is given to the needy. Over the past few weeks, we haven't had the opportunity to attend a Minyan but we have a venmo account for the Charity Fund, that community members can give into a "Virtual Sedaka Box". Feel free to venmo any amount every day, and may the Mitzvah of Tzedakah keep us all safe and healthy B"H.
Venmo: @umjcacharityfund
You will be also able to venmo the amount contained of your SEDAKA BOXES
For umjca boxes, please use @umjcacharityfund
For angel fund boxes please use @umjcaangelfund.

UMJCA Chesed - Elderly Supermarket Delivery Services

Dear Community Members, As one of the projects the Central Board was looking to put forth for the community, we are proud to announce the creation of the UMJCA Chesed Committee. The objective of this new committee will be to engage all members, old and young, to partake in various acts of chesed, such as soup kitchens, clothing drives, and the like on behalf of the Mashadi community. For it’s first initiative, given the current situation we are in, we are happy to announce that we are
coordinating food deliveries from Shop Delight and Everfresh for only those individuals over the age of 70 to protect the elderly and lessen the congestion in our grocery stores: Steps for Food Delivery:
1) Please call 516.350.8787 and leave a message for one of our members to call you back, or send an email
to chesed@umjca.org with the following information: a. Grocery Store (Shop Delight or Everfresh)
b. Your First Name, Last Name and Phone Number
c. The Delivery Address
d. The List of Items You Need
e. Your Credit Card Number, Expiration Date and Zip Code
2) We will contact and order the items on your behalf and provide your billing information. We will then reply to you or call you back with the total amount and date/time of delivery.
3) Volunteers for delivery will always wear protective masks and gloves and will not interact with the recipient. They will leave the box of items behind the door and ring the doorbell.
May the good deeds of our volunteers warrant the grace of Hashem to bring us out of this uncomfortable situation.
UMJCA Central Board.
