This Shabbos is the Queens Jewish Community Council’s (QJCC) annual community-wide appeal. The QJCC is a non-political, non-partisan, organization for communication and action on behalf of Queens Jewry. It represents the Borough’s synagogues and Jewish institutions, serves as its liaison to government and elected officials, and organizes actions on behalf of Israel and other Queens Jewry concerns. Each year, the QJCC provides emergency cash assistance and other support services to thousands of elderly, homeless, or poor Queens Jewish residents. Last year, the QJCC delivered nearly 29,000 kosher meals-on-wheels to the frail and homebound, distributed over 18,000 food packages to the poor, and provided social services to more than 13,000 clients. Due to the economic crisis, which has had a devastating effect on our community, the QJCC’s client base increase has substantially expanded. This, in conjunction with the loss of significant funding, has left many of QJCC’s programs in perilous danger of being terminated.
