Schulmans Sponsor Books for Rockland Kids

On the Yahrzeit of his mother, Pesha Devora bas Eliyahu Halevi, Yisroel Schulman and his wife, Rivkah, pledged a number of new projects including an initiative to bring Jewish books to young children in Rockland County, New York where the Schulmans reside.

Partnering with the prestigious Harold Grinspoon Foundation, on a monthly basis, non-observant families with children 6 months through age 5 ½ are eligible to receive a monthly gift of a high-quality, age-appropriate Jewish book or CD as well as a learning guide.

All materials are carefully selected by a team of Jewish education experts. The program begins this month with over five hundred children receiving in the mail their first book, “Something from Nothing” by award winning Jewish author Phoebe Gilman.

If you know of families living in Rockland County with eligible children, please email to enroll this program.
