Nearly 400 people braved the snow to attend “An Evening of Inspiration with Rabbi Ben Tzion Shafier Nov. 11 at Green Road Synagogue in Beachwood.
Dr. Meir Pollack, chairman of the Yesh Tikvah board, talked about the desperation of one having to forgo mental health treatment due to lack of funds.
Guest speaker, Shafier, an author, lecturer and founder of The Shmuz, said, “People often tell me they aren’t getting the treatment they need because they can’t afford it and I don’t know what to say. I just don’t know what to tell them.”
The Cle Zemer band provided entertainment.
Yesh Tikvah is dedicated to providing financial assistance to individuals in need of mental health treatments.
