Local Bochurim Make Mitzvah Tank Parade in Honor of Yud Aleph Nissan

You may have noticed the two Mitzvah Tanks parked outside Tzemach Tzedek this week. In addition to the wonderful Bein Hazmanim learning that our bochurim have been doing in the Shul, on Thursday, erev Yud Aleph Nissan, after Seder, they hit the streets in search of Yidden.

With Matzos, Pesach guides, Tefillin and Shabbos candles in hand, the bochurim spread across the streets of Nyack and New City providing hundreds of Jews the opportunity to do an extra Mitzvah in honor of the Rebbe's 111th birthday and Pesach.

A special thank you to Yisroel Kagan for organizing the entire program. Thank you also to Shmuly Lefkowitz, Mr. Reitman, Rabbi Blotner, Rabbi Liberow, Rabbi Hami, Rabbi Rimler, Shlomo Aharon Bronstein, Yossi Light and to the Montreal and LA Mitzvah Tank offices.

Funds are still needed to help cover costs of the Mitzvah Tank rentals. If you would like to be a partial sponsor or just contribute any amount, please contact Yisroel Kagan.
