Chesed 24/7 is gearing up for the grand finale of its Million Dollar “Food Fuels Refuos” campaign, and the entire community is getting caught up in the excitement.


The event, Kosher Market Sweep, will cap a week-long Rayze.it campaign to stock the organization’s hospitality rooms with the most-needed items, such as coffee, yogurt and Shabbos meals.

The Sweep will pair Jewish celebrities and influencers with people who were touched by Chesed 24/7, and send them on an exhilarating race through supermarket aisles to decipher clues and raise funds.

Kosher Market Sweep will be streamed live on February 16 from the Chesed 24/7 warehouse in Monsey, and will feature separate men’s and women’s events, so that every member of the community can join.

The men’s event will be hosted by Charlie Harary, and will feature a lineup of singers, comedians and Jewish celebrities including Gameshow Host Mendy Pellin, as well as Benny Friedman, Joey Newcomb, Jake Turx, and others – including a surprise big announcement. The women’s event, hosted by Charlene Aminoff, will include Gameshow Host Malky Knopfler, and stars including Naomi Nachman, Frumee Taubenfeld, and many more. The men’s event will feature a half-time show by Benny Friedman and Joey Newcomb; the women’s half-time show will be hosted by Bracha Jaffe. The campaign participants are thrilled to be part of a fundraiser that touches so many lives.

“I spent time with my sister in the hospital,” says social media influencer Abbey Wolin, producer of the event. “I know what it’s like to be desperate for a Kosher coffee or sandwich, and be able to get it, smack in the middle of Manhattan, at 2 am.” Her experience was echoed by many of the celebrities and influencers who are participating in the campaign, and by members of the community who are starting fundraising teams and raising funds.

“I started a Rayze.it team because I want to give back,” says Rivky M. “When my father was in Columbia, the Chesed room was our home base in the hospital.” Rivky set a campaign goal of raising funds for 150 twelve-dollar items, and is close to reaching it. She’ll be watching the Kosher Market Sweep from home, and is excited about the entertainment for a cause.

“Chesed 24/7 touches everyone,” she said. “It’s the community’s organization. It’s the community’s event.”

Great organization and looks like a fun event. However, I saw this on Instagram. Was dismayed to see all the influencers in the story and picture with no masks or social distancing. Even if the participants don't care, this is a publicized event. It's a chillul hashem, imo.

I stand by my comment.
There are other ways to promote an organization and fundraise. Hatzlacha to them

If Tom Cruise can do it (ie keep safety protocol) on his movie set, if Grey’s Anatomy can do it on their show set... a small heimish org can CERTAINLY do it on their set.

Let’s support them, shall we?

I was thinking the same thing. No one is rallying that no movies or television shows should be filmed with multiple ppl on set. Only tzedakah organizations get pulled down.

These women were back in their homes and communities right after the event, then sending their children to school. The same schools I send to.

I don't care what Hollywood does because it doesn't affect me in any way. Unless those celebrities shop at the same supermarket as me, I'm not near them. I'm not at risk from their behavior.

As previously expressed, I thought the event was inappropriate thing to host and advertise in the current climate. Some people will agree with me, some will disagree. C'est la vie.

I think they should have publicized their precautions in advance of posting all the rah-rah scenes of them touching each other, having their makeup done by unmasked MUAs, doing dances, etc.

OTOH, I do agree that if Hollywood does it, why shouldn't they?

I am with you I think there was a real dropping of the ball with this, especially with there specific drive (hospital), and the public nature of the event.

Even if you have everyone tested, you can STILL wear masks.

also second post that the precautions should be publicized a bit more--- a disclaimer/ banner BEFORE not after fallout.

I really support their work, but am really sorry to see this. Can't Believe It Covid-19
