Hello, friends.

I hope you are staying well. Skokie seems to be doing well statistically. May it stay that way as restrictions are lifted!

If you or anyone you know (who keeps kosher?) is financially strapped due to the pandemic, there is a wonderful opportunity to purchase food at an extremely subsidized rate. Please see flyer below, and let me know if it doesn't come through. $75 total for tons of meat, cheese, grape juice, etc. The only catch is that the quantities are vast. I've put it out there on Facebook that I'd be happy to coordinate among people who want to split an order (and will preserve privacy as much as possible). Please let me know in a private message if you'd like to be part of such a group, and/or pass it along as you deem appropriate Thanks!

Take good care,

Mental Health Resources
As we are all undoubtedly painfully aware, the challenges of the current Covid-19 situation coupled with Pesach and a three day yom tov in isolation can pose both physical and mental health risks to members of our community. Mental and physical health are matters of pikuach nefesh, and if anyone feels any need at all to call for help with a physical or mental health situation of their own or a family member, they should not hesitate in any fashion to make that phone call.

Below and here are a few resources to have handy to address mental health needs.
