During the Shabbaton, community boys become “buddies” to the Chai Lifeline kids. It will include an inspirational community-wide Seudah Shlishit at Ohr Torah. This Shabbaton has been recognized twice internationally as one of the best Shabbatons of the year. It provides the opportunity for kids in a very difficult situation to forget their troubles for a weekend and enjoy themselves with old friends and new “buddies.” It also provides their families with much-needed respite. In past years, the Shabbaton was subsidized by a small number of individuals. Unfortunately, they no longer have access to those funds, and must reach out to the community at large. We need to raise another $7,000 to cover the Shabbaton. Please sponsor or contribute today (all contributions will be displayed on the recognition card): $1,000 Sponsor Shabbat lunch $ 500 Sponsor Seudah Shlishit $ 360 Sponsor a child for the weekend $ 180 Contributor Checks should be made out to “Chai Lifeline” and mailed to David Waizer, 53 North 7th Avenue, Highland Park, NJ 08904. Teens from Highland Park/Edison who would like to volunteer should contact Barbara Edery at barbaraedery@gmail.com This event qualifies for Chesed hours and letters can be provided upon request. ___________________________________________ The FRISCH SCHOOL, located in Paramus, N.J., invites all 8th graders and their parents to our Open House on Sunday, November 10th at 9:15 AM.
