Contributions made to The Yehuda Mond Foundation are tax deductible through its affiliation with Woodside Synagogue Ahavas Torah.
Since its inception, the foundation has had a verbal agreement to accept donations as an integrated auxiliary of the Silver Spring synagogue. That agreement was formalized last week, following a meeting of the synagogue board.
The letter, signed by Woodside Synagogue Ahavas Torah President Noah Hochstadt, states that the synagogue “is proud of its affiliation with the Foundation, which since its inception, has been an integrated auxiliary of Woodside Synagogue Ahavas Torah. Our distinguished Rabbi Emeritus, Rabbi Yitzchak Breitowitz was instrumental in supporting the establishment of the Foundation.”
The Foundation helps about 30 families, or 150 individuals, by giving them on average $100 a week that can be used at Shalom Kosher in Kemp Mill. During holidays, the weekly amount is increased.The foundation buys necessities like mattresses and refrigerators for those in need. It also has two refrigerators of its own where leftovers from kiddishes and family life cycle events are kept and distributed to those in need.
