CAMPAIGNS

We're all in this together.

We did it! Campaign Funded!

We are The Goodman Family Woodridge, NY

Join us in raising funds and awareness for United Hatzalah of Israel. We are doing this in memory of Our Mother Lea Laufer Goodman .

Message to sponsors:

We have no words...not only were we able to reach our initial goal of funding an ambucycle but, due to the generosity of so many special individuals, we were also able to raise the funds to sponsor our own volunteer, both of these in record time. As of now, any extra donations that come in to our campaign will go towards funding much needed medical equipment for the volunteers, and assist to save more lives. WE COULD NOT HAVE DONE THIS WITHOUT YOU - AND THE OUTPOURING OF WARMTH AND LOVE IS IMMEASURABLE TO US.  MAY YOU ALL BE BLESSED WITH ONLY THE BEST OF HEALTH, AD MEAH V'ESRIM.  We are donating an ambucycle in memory of our mother Lea bas Yitzchok, as anyone who knew her, knew that her life was dedicated to helping the sick and the downtrodden. We invite you to join us and be a partner in continuing her legacy. If you would like to see a 2 minute video demonstrating the amazing "power" of the ambucyle, please click on the arrow to the right of the photo.

this tzedaka is given for a refua shleima to eliyahu ben rivka, as per the RAMBAM who states that tzedaka is the FIRST AND FOREMOST mitzvas Asei in the torah - it is only regarding THIS mitzvah that it says "tatzil mimaves."

Shifra P
One of the core values that comes up when we think about Savta Lea z”l is giving. In so many memories that we have of her, there is always the aspect of her sharing of herself so that others could benefit and enjoy. Savta also had a tremendous appreciation for the beauty in HaShem’s world. She herself was beautiful...and not just on the outside; her middot were exemplary and she brought—and inspired—goodness wherever she went. Savta put care into spreading smiles, simply in the ways she greeted people, brightening their days, and warming their hearts (and necks...with handmade scarves). This ambucycle campaign is a natural extension of Savta's passion for helping, healing, and bringing happiness to others. Yehi zichra baruch. LYMY...wish we could still HYKY. ~Shifra Chana, Ariel, Ilan, and Isser Matan (each of whom contributed to this donation)
Chaim S
In honor of rabbi goodman, whose efforts on behalf of klal yisroel is paralleled only by the amazing chassadim performed by his wife, lea bas yitzchok, yehi zichra baruch.

Dedicated in Memory of Lea Laufer Goodman; a woman who, although recognized for many charitable and kind deeds done on behalf of so many, did so much more for the Klal that remained unknown to most, yet benefited so many more. It is so wonderful to see her four kn"h children follow in her and her illustrious husband's yb"l footsteps. May she be a Melitzas Yosher for us all, for peace in this world, peace within families, and good health and good cheer all around. Yehi Zichra Baruch

Our grandmother "saved" Jewish neshamos on many levels. From teaching Torah to the non-affiliated, to bringing joy to the downtrodden, to feeding people who needed a meal...She "raced" to help all those in need. With this ambucycle, many more lives should be saved, in Savta Lea's zchus.
