The beautiful home of Nosson and Miri Ginsbury was filled with friends and supporters of Madraigos on Sunday morning, June 11, for the organization’s annual Five Towns breakfast. The theme of the morning was “The Many Faces of Madraigos,” and the community banded together for teens and young adults from diverse backgrounds who are serviced by Madraigos throughout the year. Through innovative programs and support services, Madraigos helps community youths and their families cope with the everyday challenges of life.
In his sincere way, Rabbi Yaakov Feitman, shlita, rav of Kehillas Bais Yehudah Tzvi, shared words of chizuk and inspiration. He stressed the importance of having a place in the community for young people to turn for guidance and support and praised Madraigos for its efforts in meeting these needs. He gave the organization a heartfelt berachah for even greater siyata d’Shmaya and continued hatzlachah.
Rabbi Dov Silver, founder and executive V.P. of Madraigos, greatly appreciates the gracious hospitality of Mr. and Mrs. Ginsbury, who made this year’s event enjoyable, meaningful, and successful in every way. Rabbi Silver remarked, “The existence and growth of Madraigos is a result of sincere, committed friends like the Ginsburys. I am touched by their genuine sensitivity to the special needs of our teens and young adults.”
To the credit of the Ginsburys and the devoted members of the event committee, Madraigos was introduced to many new friends, from the Five Towns as well as surrounding communities. Attendees learned about the scope of Madraigos’s services, including “The Lounge,” the afterschool recreation center for boys and girls (on separate nights), the school-based services program in local schools, and the most recently developed program, the parenting support groups and parenting workshops that are offered throughout the year to families in our community.
“It was my goal to spread awareness and raise funds for Madraigos, a dynamic organization,” said Nosson Ginsbury. “My support and enthusiasm for its work is predicated not only on its unbelievable growth and development as an organization, but on its remarkable success in achieving its unique mission.”
“We are thrilled with the wonderful turnout from local supporters and rabbanim,” said Rabbi Josh Zern, executive director of Madraigos. “We hope to build upon these relationships as we grow even stronger in our ability to effectively meet the needs of the youth in our community.”
