Review for RAJE-USA INC , Brooklyn, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Like many people, I am concerned about the possibility of losing my job, or at least losing work hours. So I watch my budget. I found out about RAJE from the Internet. I'm glad I went to RAJE fo rRosh Hashana. I loved every minute of it!!! Not only were the meals very affordable and delicious, but i enjoyed real comeraderie and friendliness. the services were in Hebrew, Russian, and English. There were Dvrei Torah (lectures) in English, and othrs in Russian. thre was something for EVERYONE, no matter what languages you understood. And I saw the real commitment to not leaving anyone out. I know that people could pay for meals by helping out instead of giving money. Even though I do, thank God, have the money now, many people really don't. I'll continue to do so as long as RAJE exits!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

offer religious services and Shabbat meals in more places! It could help even more people who've lost their jobs but still yearn for Jewish learning and fellowship! It could fix up more Jewish singles! Give RAJE 10 million $! It's worth it!!!

Ways to make it better...

I lived in walking distance of the shul. RAJE offers to find hospitality, but I'm skittish about staying in other people's homes.
