Shiva Supplies Gemach
After the death of an immediate family member, Yad Yehuda runs gemachim from many of the shuls in the Greater Washington area that provides helpful items needed for observing the customs of shiva. Items Include comfortable low chairs, small tables to keep next to the chairs, weather mats to protect floors from larger volume of visitors, portable coat racks to help keep the home orderly.

As Jewish communities in the Greater Washington area continue to grow, so have the number of families and individuals needing assistance. As a volunteer staffed organization, every dollar donated translates into direct assistance. Please consider making a donation of any amount.
