Powerful CSE Response to a Powerless Florida

Crucial Post-Irma Relief Campaign Launched

By: L. Halevi

Chesed Shel Emes of Florida (CSE) is a unique, multi-faceted organization, which carries the workload and the burden of multiple organizations in one.

Founded with a mission to assure proper respect and dignity to the bodies of Jews who have passed away, and as a support system for the loved ones they left behind, it has become so much more than that.

As time went on, the indefatigable volunteers of CSE quickly realized that their assistance was needed on so many more occasions, and in so many other ways than just as a “Chesed Shel Emes” team. True, the core Chesed of assisting families of the recently deceased remains front and center in their mission, including Levaya and burial arrangement, autopsy intervention, cremation prevention and other vital services. However, the many members of CSE, led by its director, Mr. Mark Rosenberg, have become the de-facto Jewish community liaisons between the scores of Police departments, law enforcement and other government agencies across the State of Florida, assisting individual Jews as well as entire communities in many ways throughout the year. From pre-Yom Tov safety coordination to post-crime investigations and outreach, the one address for all communal issues in Florida is CSE. No matter the issue that arises, the relationships that the CSE has forged with the officials in virtually all agencies, proves vital to the continued good-will and betterment of the needs of Jewish Floridians across the State.

Most recently, with the devastating Hurricane Irma, which has wreaked unprecedented havoc across Florida, many Jewish communities are struggling to survive and sustain themselves in the aftermath of the storm which has taken their power, their food supply, their gasoline, and even their homes.

CSE to the rescue! From before the onset of the storm, with crucial preparation, and with round-the-clock assistance after the storm, CSE has arranged for thousands of meals for starving families, procurement and installation of scores of generators for powerless homes, over 2,400 gallons of gasoline for stranded motorists, and other crucial life-saving assistance for the elderly and others with medical conditions. Just one small example of many is the recent discovery by CSE volunteers of 30 holocaust survivors in one building, who have been without food or water for 2 days, and were unable to call for help; they were saved in the nick of time, averting a major tragedy.

CSE has answered the call, and continues to answer the call, despite the heavy financial burden that comes along with it. To date, CSE has footed the post-Irma relief bill to the tune of $25,000 to assist Florida residents in need.

CSE needs your help! We cannot – and will not -  stop helping those in need, but we need your financial assistance to keep us going.

The #ChesedForChesedShelEmes campaign (or whatever other #HASHTAG you named the campaign) was launched to allow Klal Yisroel to collectively shoulder the burden of ensuring the safety, security and care of every member of the Florida Jewish community.

The storm was powerful, but Klal Yisroel, when united, is stronger than any storm!

HELP CSE HELP THOSE IN NEED, TODAY, TOMORROW AND ALWAYS!
