LETTERS TO THE EDITOR | July 26, 2013
As president of the Vaad Hakashruth of Louisville, I feel compelled to notify those in the community who have an interest in the future of maintaining Kashrus for our community. The By-Laws that we are currently operating under are in need of updating. As the Vaad is an agency of the Louisville Jewish community, I am hoping those interested, rabbis included, will want to get involved with the future of kashrus and operation of the community Mikvah in Louisville.
The Vaad promotes and supervises kosher facilities in our community. The Vaad also provides a Mikvah for community use.
Please feel free to contact me or your rabbi.
Jacob Wishnia, Vaad President
Dear Jewish Community,
On behalf of Nechama, I would would like to thank you for all you have done to support us over the years. It’s your behind-the-scenes compassion and generosity that allows for our nation to heal one heart and home at a time. We are proud to have you all as part of the Nechama family. We hope all is well with everyone in Louisville and enjoy your summer.
Mark Jude McGilvery and Nechama
Editor’s note: Nechama is the Jewish response to disaster. Nechama volunteers provide natural disaster preparedness, response and recovery services nationwide. They bring comfort to disaster survivors by training and mobilizing thousands of volunteers to help communities after floods, tornadoes and other natural disasters. Nechama had teams of volunteers on the ground in Henryville, IN, following the March 2012 tornado, and the Jewish Community of Louisville provided monetary support and volunteers to help.
