Help Finish The Mechitzas for Tzemach Tzedek's Simcha Room

In an effort to make it more comfortable for women to participate and hear the Rav during kiddushim and farbrengens, Reb Moshe Reitman has been working over the last few months on constructing beautiful new mechitzas for the Simcha Room in Tzemach Tzedek.

When finished, the mechitzas will contain one-way glass (with an image on the men's side), enabling the women to have a clear view just like upstairs in the main shul, as well as contemporary spotlight lighting and beautiful curtains.

In addition, the mechitzas may bring down the noise level of the room slightly and provide an aesthetically pleasing addition to the room for when people use it for Simchas.

To date, Moshe has laid out more than four thousand dollars towards this project and needs another two thousand to finish it up.

If you would like to have the zechus of contributing towards these mechitzas, please contact Moshe at or 917-301-5537.
