Herd Immunity? We heard unity. One resilient community. Ohr Esther services =are outdoors, safe, socially distant, but spiritually close. But Acoustics are tough so QUIET DURING SERVICES PLEASE! Sat 9:30 AM.
Ohr Esther Joke of the week:
Q: Why is it so hard for women to choose where to eat?
A: Because Eve’s first choice (“the forbidden apple”) nearly doomed humanity…
SHALOM BAYIT TIP: Never take each other for granted… “Choose your spouse” every day!
Parsha Preview: NOAH! Noah builds an ark for his family & every pair of animals. Hashem brings a flood that eradicates all other life on Earth. The Earth is repopulated, and humans build the Tower of babel. G-d scatters the people and their language.

Mashadi Bikkur Cholim Introduces CAPE

Mashadi Bikkur Cholim has been building relationships and negotiating for many months to be able to introduce CAPE to our community members. This will be a great benefit as the need for private therapy has increased during the pandemic, has been very hard to find, is expensive and usually not covered by insurance. CAPE has 12 licensed therapists, each specialized with decades of experience, as well as a psychiatrist and nurse practitioner who can dispense medication.

If you missed the informative Cape Zoom Session that took place Last Week, please click Here for the youtube video

How do you apply for services at CAPE?

Call: 718-224-0566 or email: cape@commonpointqueens.org. The CAPE coordinators will ask for your demographic information such as: name, address, phone contact, birthdate and insurance information. They will also discuss the primary reason you are contacting them. Please feel comfortable giving them this information and stating that you are part of the Mashadi Community. All information are kept strictly confidential. you will then be assigned a therapist who will contact you to intake your information and reason for your contacting CAPE which could take up to two sessions. After that, you will be assigned and matched to a psychotherapist who is usually the same therapist who initially contacts you but not always. Cape bills almost all insurance including Medicare and Medicaid. There will be a sliding scale for those who can not afford co-pay; which UJA will assist. No one who could benefit from Cape's services will be denied care for financial reasons. Submitted by Ramin Mardkha.

Like the past three years, Mashadi Jewish communities of all around the world (USA, Italy , England, Germany, Israel) will join as a united group to give a symbolic gift of 1,000.00 NIS (about $300) to each Mashadi soldier presently serving in the IDF.
Because of coronavirus this year there will not be any ceremony and every soldier will receive his/her gift by mail or wire transfer during Hanukkah.
Last year, the number of soldiers who received a symbolic gift of 1,000.00 NIS was about 165. This year it is expected that there will be somewhere between 150-175 applicants.
It will be greatly appreciated if everyone in our community will give some donation towards the funding of this year’s program
■ There are many volunteers who are helping out by collecting donations from their friends and community members. Please let us know if you or any of your friends or family members would like to be added to the list of volunteers.
■ Special envelopes were printed for the IDF soldiers program, you can place your donation check inside these envelopes and then send by mail. All checks must be payable to UMJCA, please don’t mail any cash. There will be a Venmo account soon for those people who would like to send their donation through Venmo.
■ This year’s IDF soldiers program is in honor and in memory of two very good and respectful individuals in the Mashadi community: late Youness Hakimian (Mortezazadeh) and late Khosrow Hakimian (Mortezazadeh).
For More Info please contact Albert Bassal
