‘Giveback Sunday’ in West Hempstead


Patients at Northwell Health’s North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset will have everything they need to make their own seders, thanks to the children of the Young Israel of West Hempstead. More than 75 of them, along with their moms and dads, participated in the YIWH’s annual #Giveback Sunday event.

Each patient who gets a #Giveback box will find a brightly decorated Kiddush cup; a seder plate made from the lid of the box; a washing cup with sharpied decorations; a cloth matzah cover decorated with bright fabric markers; a friendly looking frog origami bookmark, and, of course, a Haggadah.
