SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ – Ronald McDonald House Charities New York Tri-State Area (RMHC NYTSA) awarded $10,000 to the Scotch Plains-based Emmanuel Cancer Foundation (ECF). The grant benefits New Jersey children with cancer and their families.

The Emmanuel Cancer Foundation was founded to honor the memory of 7-year-old Emmanuel Vizzoni who lost his battle with Burkett’s lymphoma. His parents, Susan and Joseph Vizzoni, experienced the enormous emotional and financial hardships that families endure when a child is diagnosed with cancer. In 1983, two years after Emmanuel’s death, the family established ECF to assist others experiencing the trauma of childhood cancer.

The foundation’s mission is to provide a variety of specialized services, at no charge, to any New Jersey family facing the challenges of caring for a child with cancer. Services include professional in-home counseling, advocacy on behalf of the families, material support such as food, clothing, toys, and household items, and emergency financial relief. ECF has provided free assistance to nearly 2,000 families in need since its grassroots inception to its statewide reach today. The assistance begins where hospitals leave off: at home, where families find themselves isolated and missing the supportive network found in a medical setting.

Sinai or Sanctuary?

 

 

And in the beginning, G‑d was homeless, and so G‑d asked His people to set Him up with some digs. Where does it say that? Well, nowhere, actually. But it does say that G‑d instructed Moses to tell the people, “They shall make for Me a Sanctuary, that I may dwell among them.”

Now the question is, was G‑d really homeless? ...
