Our Sponsors

Ohel Ayalah thanks John Ruskay, CEO of UJA-Federation of New York, for a generous grant to launch this project. There is no fundraising at the services. The names of people and organizations that have made donations to cover the costs of “producing” our High Holiday services and Passover seders are printed in the program handouts and listed below. Ohel Ayalah deeply thanks all of our sponsors for recognizing the importance of this outreach endeavor.

met-councilSpring 2011, 2012 and 2013: We thank the Metropolitan Council on Jewish Poverty, an agency of UJA Federation NY, for a generous grant to help keep the Passover seders affordable to all.

A heartfelt expression of gratitude to Erica and Rob Schwartz who have generously underwritten the cost of the Ohel Ayalah once-a-month Friday night services (2008-2010).

Thanks to The Steinhardt Foundation for Jewish Life for a generous donation (2010).

Ohel Ayalah also expresses heartfelt thanks to the Natan Foundation for a grant in 2008 to expand Ohel Ayalah to a second venue in the fall of 2008 and for a renewal of the grant in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013. Thanks to Natan Ohel Ayalah opened a third High Holiday venue in Queens in 2011.

And to the Horace Goldsmith Foundation for a grant to support Ohel Ayalah services (2009).

Todah mi’qerev lev to Rabbi Jonathan Levine, of Media Judaica, who has made a generous donation of mahzorim for both the Manhattan and the Brooklyn venues.

The same expression of thanks to Rafi Musher for a generous grant to purchase mahzorim for the Brooklyn venue and for his ongoing and multi-faceted support of this venture.

Many thanks to the sponsors of the Ohel Ayalah Seder, April 23, 2005/ 15 Nisan 5765:

Special thanks to Drs. Philip and Natalie Hauptman, Rabbi Judith Hauptman’s brother and sister-in-law, who have been generous supporters of this Ohel Ayalah project.
