One of our dedicated Friendship Circle volunteers, Jade Glatter, together with her mom Gili, have partnered with Friendship Circle for a very special project MEZUZAHS FOR CHARLES in loving memory of their dear father and husband, Charles Glatter A"H.

As we approach the Jewish new year and the high holiday season, Jade & Gili are inspired to do something meaningful to honor Charles' legacy. He was a proud Jew who always celebrated our Jewish traditions and heritage joyfully. Their mission is to find homes for 60 new Mezuzot, with each one representing a year in Charles' life.

To hear about the Mezuzah Project in Jade's own words click here. (If you're not sure what a Mezuzah is, Jade covers that too!)

Sign up to be 1 of the 60 homes and we'll be there to install a Mezuzah on your door in Charles' memory. Mezuzot are available for homes in NYC.
