R' Yosef Shandling to Bike for Masbia

This Sunday, October 21, R' Yosef Shandling will be riding his bicycle in support of Masbia , a nonprofit soup kitchen network and food pantry throughout Brooklyn and Queens.

Masbia provides hot, nutritious meals daily for hundreds of New Yorkers in desperate need of food, and every week hands out hundreds of weekend take-home packages of groceries.

Yosef will be riding from the Prospect Park area of Brooklyn, through Manhattan, across the George Washington Bridge into New Jersey, and back. The round trip will total 40 miles.

On the occasion of his ride, Yosef is inviting people to join him in supporting this great organization. In order to do so, please go to www.crowdrise.com/josephshandling then click on the “Donate” button and follow the remaining prompts to make an online donation.

Any amount will be greatly appreciated. If you prefer to write a check, you can make it out to “Masbia” and send it to Yosef at 29 North Rigaud, Spring Valley, N.Y. 10977.
