Philanthropist R’ Yossi Popack is sponsoring ice cream for over 20 parties across New York City, where children who attend Released Time will have a chance to hear Aseres Hadibros.
The Rebbe called for every Jewish child to hear the Aseres Hadibros on Shavuos. Community philanthropist Mr. Yossi Popack is generously helping Released Time heed the Rebbe’s call.
Since Lag Baomer, the Released Time staff have been working closely with many local Shluchim and shuls in organizing local parties, where Released Time families and friends will be able to hear the Aseres Hadibros while enjoying a delicious family ice cream party!
In previous years, bochurim headed out on the first day of Shavuos to bring Released Time children to shul, where they heard Aseres Hadibros and enjoyed treats. This year, with the first day of Shavuos falling out on Sunday, when public school children have a day off, the Released Time staff set out to make sure even more children attend the programs.
Thanks to a generous donation from Mr. Yossi and Batsheva Popack, Released Time will be organizing over 20 Ice cream parties across NYC. Over 2,000 Yidden are expected to attend, many who would not have celebrated Shavuos without the Released Time program.
Released Time and NCFJE extended their thanks to the Popacks, and their wishes of kabalas haTorah b’simcha u’bipnimius to all chassidim.
