Shavua tov and chodesh tov! We want to thank you for the wonderful boxes you sent. The beautiful clothes are a good quality and are nicely folded. It’s greatly appreciated!
We want to tell you about the store- called Shesh and Argaman. It’s named after a 7 year old boy-Shimon Efraim from Elon Moreh who drowned last year. The store is in Elon Moreh (in the shomron) and it serves all the surrounding yishuvim. It’s suitable for simple and large families who cannot afford the prices in regular city stores. This store gives them the opportunity to buy nice clothes for a symbolic price (3 shekel for each item).
Hopefully you’ll be able to visit and see for yourself how we set up the store. It’s clean neat and organized in a way to make shopping easy. People feel comfortable and good about themselves when buying clothes.
We can’t thank you enough for your help.
Please thank all the people involved.
Wow! The place was crowded by holiday shoppers who were able to satisfy their needs for the chagim and the coming winter months, without worrying how they could possibly pay for it all. Many with large families walked out with large bags filled with most of their season’s clothing. And Big SMiles on their faces. Many came repeatedly during the three days that new boxes were constantly being unpacked. And they told their friends, who told their friends….. Some of these women are embarrassed to go to the local clothing gmachim, but this is after all from abroad – no one here will point and think ‘that was mine’. A few Bnei Menashe, one of the returning lost tribes from India, came to thank me for providing them with holiday clothing, while keeping their pride. MAny want to know when the next sale is! And so all these thank yous and blessings, I pass along to you Jessica, because you are truly a messenger, offering a G-dsend to supply our families with respectable, good quality items without excess financil pressures. Many told me that even their hard to please teens, were happy – and that is saying a lot!
Rivka and Ora, who received similar comments, asked me to send their thanks and appreciation.
Please extend our thanks to all who assist in these great efforts. May you be blessed with good health, strength for your many good deeds, nachas from your family and peace on all of am Yisrael.
