Chabad of Teaneck will hold a benefit for women on Monday, August 15, at 8 p.m. at the Chabad House for Ayala Shapira, who was critically wounded in a West Bank firebomb terror attack in 2014, when she was 11.
Shashi Ishai, now of Netanya and formerly of Teaneck and a blogger for the Times of Israel, will lead the benefit. Ayala’s grandfather, Israel, is the gabbai at Ms. Ishai’s Netanya shul. Anyone who donates chai ($18) at the meeting will receive a copy of Ishai’s book, “Ask Avigail,” a compilation of stories from her timesofisrael.com blog. Funds raised will be given to Ayala as a belated bat mitzvah gift. For information, call (201) 907-0686 or email email@example.com.
