i'm reclaiming the profile space as my own, so here's what's written as team chessed's profile, just for posterity's sake.

Team Chessed Profile: "With this faith, we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope."--Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Baruch Hashem, we are all so deeply blessed in so many ways. And we all have so much we can give. We also have so many reasons to give: because it's the right thing to do, because we have pain and we want to give it meaning, because we have been through hard times and want to help others who are there now, because we are committed to doing mitzvot, because we are good people who want to do chessed. Here are some opportunities to do good, mostly around the Hyde Park community. May we all be zoche to push the world forward to a better place.
