Dearest Ohr Chaim Family,
Firstly, I miss seeing you and hope everyone is feeling well and has everything they need. If someone needs help with grocery, pharmacy, or any other deliveries please call me, and I will do my best to help.

Chavrusa Learning (by phone)
Many of us find ourselves with more free time than usual. There is no better way to fill that time than with increased Torah learning. Rav Jonathan Levene (our Daf Yomi Maggid Shiur) and I are setting up study partners for anyone interested in taking advantage of this opportunity.
Please call Rabbi Friedman (305) 720-4762 or Rabbi Levene (610) 420-7099 to set up a session.

Maos Chittim money for Pesach
There is a pressing need for families in our community who had planned on going away for Pesach and will now be making their own Yom Tov. Compounding the issue is the current financial downturn, especially for people who are hourly employees. As always I will be distributing funds to local families and ask everyone to be as generous as possible.

Selling Chametz
I will be arranging the sale of  chametz to a non-Jew as usual, only this year it will be done by phone or email please call or email me directly. ocrabbi@gmail.com with address and estimated value of the chametz that you will be selling.

Stay safe
Rabbi Chaim Friedman
