The Young Israel of Jamaica Estates continued its tradition of making Thanksgiving special for those less fortunate. This past Sunday’s Family Mitzvah Morning, 60 Thanksgiving centerpiece packages were made for the Queens Commonpoint Thanksgiving deliveries. Special thanks to Ruthie and Charles Merrill for sponsoring to show gratitude to the YIJE community.

Stay tuned for details about the next Family Mitzvah Morning – on December 4 –where we will be making Chanukah gifts for the Margaret Tietz Rehabilitation Center. Visit for more details of future programming.
