Acts of chesed are at the core of the Young Israel of Jamaica Estates. At this month’s Family Mitzvah Morning, 40 mugs were decorated and filled with coffee and snacks for local hospital healthcare workers at Northwell Health! Parents and grandparents enjoyed making crafts with their children.

Special thanks to the Hertan family for sponsoring in memory of Sharon’s father Bernhard Samstein z”l. If you’d like to sponsor or attend future mitzvah mornings, please visit
