(PRESS RELEASE)_North Palm Beach, FL – As the state of Florida rolls out its first dosages of the Covid-19 vaccine, people are frantic to get hold of the depleting supply of shots.
In short supply of the vaccine and a countless number of people looking to protect themselves and loved ones, for many, it may look like the impossible. Rabbi Leib Ezagui of the Jewish Community Synagogue and The Kind Kitchen recognized the need to care for the community’s most vulnerable and partnered with the FDEM and Local Fire Departments to make it happen for them.
Because the Kind Kitchen sends out hundreds of meals on a weekly basis to Holocaust survivors and homebound seniors, they know firsthand the desperate need for help.
Rabbi Shlomo Ezagui shared, “Many of the elderly people we care for are unable to leave their homes and have no family to be there for them. As a community organization, we wanted to make sure the vaccine was also accessible to those who otherwise wouldn’t be able to get it on their own.”
Rabbi Leib Ezagui together with The Jewish Community Synagogue and The Kind Kitchen therefore took matters into their own hands and reached out to the Florida Department of Emergency Management and their local fire department. They managed to secure a limited supply of the coronavirus vaccine for homebound seniors and Holocaust survivors. With hundreds of people signing up through The Kind Kitchen, First Responders visited the homes and senior living facilities to successfully administer them.
