Gimpels Bris Milah Chair for synagogues
Organized by: Ari Knopfler
To donate a Gimpels Bris Milah Chair to synagogues that don't already have one.
Leili Nishmas , Mordechai Gimple Ben Eliezer.
I started noticing that many synagogues do not have this special chair for this amazing moment in a Jewish persons life. I did a lot of research trying to find the right chair for this occasion in furniture stores and online. Eventually I found a chair that I felt was the right look for this occasion. I started donating a few of these chairs to synagogues in my neighborhood.
Many or most synagogues to not have this special chair currently.This fund will help many synagogues have this chair.
My passion for this project stems from to vivid memories of our dear fathers passion in finding any and every opportunity to donate many different things to holy places of prayer and study.
An additional memory fueled this project as well. My dear father Z"TL was very tuned into the incredible opportunity to pray during this great mitzvah. While others stood around making small talk during the bris milah, he would stand with his tfillin and tallis over his head and would daven for the many people that needed salvation for various different situations they were in. We want to continue his legacy by taking this project to a larger scale.
