Job Assistance Initiative

The Rambam notes that the highest form of tsedakah is to help one on the verge of financial ruin. Over time, assisting in finding one good job for one who is unemployed, in addition to restoring that person's self esteem & morale, is equivalent to raising hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Looking for a job or have a job available or would like to list your freelance services?  Help us in our task.  Go to http://www.jobassist.org for more information about the Kemp Mill Employment Assistance Initiative.
