The Danforth Jewish Centre Sends Message of Gratitude
The allocation of Shaar Shalom’s possessions was a painful process but knowing that transferring our loved ritual items to shuls who need them and will allow them to practice Judaism in other neighbourhoods made the transition meaningful and fulfilling.
Josh, Greenhut of the Danforth Jewish Centre recently wrote to Mel Fishman to express his gratitude.
On behalf of the DJC Board and our whole community, I want to say how humbled we were by the generosity of Shaar Shalom. As I expressed to Seymour Hersh, we’ve been saddened to see Shaar Shalom close its doors, and are honoured to carry on its tradition of prayer, study, and good deeds in our own way. I know you and your wife were instrumental in getting so many of the objects and supplies to us, and we are deeply grateful.
What’s the best way to express our gratitude? Is there anything else I can do to ensure your community and those who made the decision about where to distribute Shaar Shalom’s effects to feel the love, and show impact they have had on our own community? We really feel so blessed.
Chair, DJC Board
