Quarantine has been devastating for everyone. For Holocaust Survivors with no family or with children living far away, it has been crippling.
Loneliness, anxiety and uncertainty have strangled survivors.
But there was a warm light shining for our dear survivors. Nachas launched a desperately needed virtual social support network.
Survivors celebrated their triumphant lives with sensational virtual concerts starring Yaakov Shwekey, Benny Friedman and Shloime Dachs. We launched a music therapy session on Zoom every week, with Amy strumming her guitar and singing beloved Yiddish songs from the shtetl along with the survivors. It has been life giving, life sustaining, and life affirming.
And now, we need you.
We need your help.
As our survivors have gotten vaccinated and the world has reopened, Nachas is reopening for survivors to reunite and receive desperately needed support in person.
And we can’t do it without you.
Social Support Network:
Sponsor a weekly aerobic class that keeps survivors energized, healthy and uplifted. Cover the cost of a delicious hot meal that nourishes survivors as they feast with supportive friends. Our survivors look forward to our aerobics class, shiur and lunch as the highlight of their week.
Hot Meal Program:
We are determined that no survivor should ever feel hunger again. Some survivors are housebound, other survivors can’t afford to buy food and don’t have the capabilities to cook their own meals anymore.
We partner with local restaurants to provide healthy and sustaining meals for survivors every day.
Nachas steps in to provide well-rounded and gourmet meals for survivors who would be spending a lonely Shabbos or holiday with no food and a bare table otherwise. Home-style Shabbos cooking that is nutritious, delicious and nostalgic. We pour love and devotion into every meal we deliver to each survivor’s door every Friday to usher in Shabbos.
Thank you for partnering with us to make Holocaust Survivors’ lives brighter. Your donation makes an immeasurable difference!
"Nachas helped me when I had nowhere else to turn, and helped me rise above a crisis. The staff was sensitive and caring, and helped me receive benefits in an efficient and respectable manner." - Sylvia B.
