Monsey: Kupath Ezrah Desperately in Need of Assistance​, Charity Looks for Help as Funds are Depleted


This Month We Do Not Have the Funds to Support the Families who Rely on Us

Established in 1959 by Rabbi Hershel Mashinsky Z”L and Mr. Sam Nussbaum Z”L, Kupath Ezrah was founded to address the crisis of poverty in our community.  55 years later, what started as a small project has evolved into a multifaceted organization with an annual budget exceeding $2 million.  Kupath Ezrah is a beacon of hope and support to families in need.

Kupath Ezrah is unique because it belongs to the community and tends to the needs of all Jews without exception. Every contribution goes entirely to helping the needy. All operating expenses are covered by profits from Kupath Ezrah’s well established Nearly New Thrift Shop and Furniture Exchange.


One of our primary functions is providing monthly stipends to needy families in a confidential and respectful manner. Each and every recipient is treated with the utmost dignity. Unfortunately, due to the dramatic increase in the number of families desperate for financial assistance, the situation is critical. 10% of families within the greater Monsey area are currently relying on us to help them pay for food, shelter, and utilities.

We are currently supporting more than 600 families throughout the year and applications for help continue to pour in. We cannot meet this growing demand without your generosity.

Since Kupath Ezrah’s inception, we have distributed more than $30 million and have never faced a time when we were unable to send monthly stipends to those in need. However, this month we do not have the funds to support the families who rely on us and have had to delay our assistance, causing pain and embarrassment to members of our community who cannot afford basic necessities.

We are appealing for your emergency support to give relief to those who need it most.
