Met Council celebrated the grand opening of the Chesed Center, a brand-new social service hub to address the needs of the frum community of Boro Park during these unprecedented times. Social services and direct food assistance will be provided by Met Council to support the community and help families struggling in the wake of the pandemic and the economic downturn.

According to the Baal Shem Tov, Hashem leads the world like a compassionate mother who is trying to teach her small, tender child how to walk. She first stands him up on his feet, makes sure he’s steady, then distances herself from him a little so he can get used to walking on his own. And as he gets closer to her with small, stuttered steps, she once again pulls away, ever so slightly, encouraging him to walk a bit further.
