In honor of Kollel Chabad of Safed

We wanted to express our appreciation for the monthly help we received recently. In general, it helps on a daily basis that there is food at home. But especially at Hanukkah when the married children came to visit, your help enabled us to accept them with dignity. It really pleased us.

God bless you abundantly in everything!
