For example, if you donate stock with a long term capital gain, you may be able to avoid paying taxes on the capital gain while getting a charitable tax deduction for the full current value of the stock. Please call the Shul office for stock transfer instructions. Of course, you should check with your accountant to understand your specific situation.

GREAT NECK YOETZET HALACHA
In order to enhance the observance of taharat hamishpacha in our community, we are excited about welcoming Yoetzet Halacha, Lisa Septimus, as an additional resource for answering questions.

Like all Yoatzot Halacha, Lisa has been certified by a panel of Orthodox rabbis to be a resource for women with questions regarding taharat hamishpachah (an area of Jewish Law that relates to marriage, intimacy and women's health). This role was devised to assist women who are more comfortable discussing very personal issues with another woman, with the option of remaining anonymous during the call. In preparing to become Yoatzot Halacha, women devote two years (over 1000 hours) to intensive study with rabbinic authorities in taharat hamishpachah and receive training from experts in modern medicine and psychology, including gynecology, infertility, women's health, family dynamics and sexuality.

Below is Lisa's contact information, as well as for our rabbinical team, all of whom remain available to answer questions and provide guidance:

Yoetzet Halacha Lisa Septimus - 516 415 1111
Rabbi Lerner - 516-318-0141
Abby Lerner - 516-661-1072
Rabbi Ismach - 516 250 8202

CHESSED OPPORTUNITY
Tomchei Shabbos of Queens provides food to those in need every Wednesday. There are some routes in Queens that don’t have regular drivers. If you have about 2 hours free (that’s including travel time to the warehouse in Kew Gardens) on any given Wednesday night, please call the warehouse starting at 8pm at 718-850-8070 (do not leave a message, they do not check the machine on Wednesdays). The person who answers the phone will let you know if drivers are needed that night to make deliveries. Keep in mind that in many areas in Queens it is difficult to park, so it is best if you make those deliveries with a partner (one to deliver and one to wait in the car). NO COMMITMENT NEEDED. You can do this once, once a month or every week… it’s up to you.
