Congresswoman Grace Meng Responds To Jewish Community

Children of Kew Gardens and Kew Gardens Hills were treated to a special treat in honor of Rosh Chodesh Sivan this past Sunday afternoon. The Klein’s ice cream truck came to town, serving delicious cones to neighborhood kids. The first stop was at the Kew Gardens Synagogue Adath Yeshurun(aka The Big Shul), where families lined up in an orderly fashion according to their last name. Then, three stops were made in KGH: first at Young Israel Queens Valley, then in front of Yeshiva of Central Queens, and finally in front of the Queens Valley Playground (better known as the Shabbos Park), at the corner of 76th Avenue and 137th Street. Children and parents alike social distanced in a remarkable fashion, making a true kidush Hashem as they formed lines patiently awaiting their turn to meet the ice cream man! The special delicacy was sponsored anonymously to bring cheer to the children stuck at home most of the week in quarantine. Mi K’amcha Yisrael!
