Sassoon Family Assistance Fund Announced

BROOKLYN -

A fund has been set up to help the Sassoon family rebuild their home after the tragic Shabbos fire that left seven of the children dead and the mother and the eighth child fighting for their lives.

“The Sassoon Children Memorial Fund,” the only legitimate fund helping the family at this time, according to Assemblyman Dov Hikind, is associated with the Jewish Communal Fund. People who wish to donate or learn more can visit their website.

In addition, checks may be made payable to JCF (write “Sassoon Children Memorial Fund” in the memo) and mailed to Jewish Communal Fund, 575 Madison Avenue, Suite 703, New York, NY 10022. For further information, contact Ellen Israelson at Ellen@jcfny.org or at 212-752-8277 ext. 213
