Just those pesky Jews bringing light to the world again…
With no end in sight in the partial government shutdown — now in the start of its fourth week — the Flushing Jewish Community Council and Masbia of Queens are assisting federal employees and their families with boxes of donated food items and hot dinners.
At Masbia of Queens, a nonprofit soup kitchen network and food pantry — located at 105 64th Rd #47 in Forest Hills — federal employees are welcomed to pick up hot delicious meals and groceries.
“It takes time for the middle-class person without a paycheck to make the psychological switch to take charity,” said Rapaport. “I don’t think we have seen many yet but we also have a no questions ask policy.”
Here the Rapaport family of the Masbia Food Kitchen are going around the airport handing out circulars offering free food/groceries to TSA agents who are not getting paid due to the Government shut down.
proud even prouder to be part of the Jewish people.
