Kushner high, Kars 4 Kids = Kidush Hashem !

With many recent negative stories in the press regarding frum yidden, It is heartwarming to see recent positive beautiful stories of kiddush hashem followed by the national media.

 In Lakewood, NJ where a fellow yid and another frum person saved 2 childrens lives when they were hit by a car. The story made it to all national media outlets. What a Kiddush hashem. HERE

Second story, Kars 4 Kids organization HERE gives out 1000 coats on Staten Island, NY for Victims of Hurricane Sandy. A Frum Organization, Kars4kids, Oorah makes a Kiddush Hashem. Kars4kids also received donations from victims with flood damaged cars and salvage vehicles by hurricane sandy and gave them free towing and  hotel vacation Vouchers. HERE

Third story, Students from Rae Kushner high (Jared Kushner family of Donald Trump) in Livingston, NJ went out to feed the Hungry in Newark, NJ giving food, shelter and donating blankets to the homeless at Newark Penn station. HERE

Of course the countless chesed that frum yidden do with each other is the highest form, but the media will never pick up on it. At least we have some positive coverage in a media that's always looking to find a fault.  !מי כעמך ישראל


  1. I don't like the fact that the Lakewood one calls Jews Samaritans?

    1. It's an expression from the Christian Bible, though I doubt the reporter knows that. You can Google it.

    2. I was thinking more along the lines of Good Samaritans being good Kutim, which is obviously a negative connotation. However, that is the entire point of their Scripture's mashal. However I suppose that your concern is valid as well. The example makes sense though, and the journalist did use the expression properly.

  2. I don't know if I would call it a kiddush Hashem.

    Let's remember that we don't need their approval - we need Hashem's approval for our behaviors. (Two of these stories certainly had them.)

    We will never get them love us. Halocha yodua, Eisov Sonei es Yaakov.

  3. What's with the 4 K's in the headline? :-)
