OUR CHALLENGE

To identify those in the community in need of support.  

We request members of the community to let us know, in the strictest confidence, if they come across someone in need of support

It is a great Mitzvah to bring assistance anonymously to someone in need.

                                                        

Please contact either:

Rabbi Krebs (02) 9988 4417

Howard Sher (Shul President) 0419 299 301

David Selikman (KMC President) 0416 007 116
