Yisroel And Yossy Hershkop, Father & Son Team.


We've never done this before. We aren't the type to publicly challenge people to give to causes, but we are both super-fans of the work that Reb Yossi Rapp does at JFK airport. We were both shocked when Harav Kuti Rapp A"h was taken away so suddenly, and its a good feeling that this cause that was so close to his heart, has not only continued but has grown tremendously in the last two years. We are aiming to raise at least $2,500 and we are asking all of our friends and family to please give even a small amount (1 hour of your salary). We have personally seen how Yossi Rapp is so careful about every single donated dollar. Thank you for your support, for our teams effort. Yisroel & Yossy Hershkop,

In Action


The Cause

50 years ago, in 5727 (1967), on the eve of the Six Day War, the Rebbe launched Mivtza Tefillin (Tefillin campaign), explaining that through fulfilling the Mitzvah of Tefillin, the Jewish people will be secure and protected from their enemies. Soon afterwards, Rabbi Kuti Rapp A"H began his activities in New York's airports—putting on Tefillin with Jewish travelers, assisting them in performing other Mitzvos during holidays and throughout the year, as well as in all areas of Jewish life. Through this work, Rabbi Rapp merited to bring many Jews to the Rebbe, and bring many hearts closer to Torah and Chassidus.
Today, two years after R' Kuti's tragic passing, his son Yossi carries on his holy mission and the scope of Chabad of the Airport's activities has and continues to grow each day. Please partner with us to ensure that growth continues at an even faster pace, so Chabad of the Airport can continue to be a light to Jewish travelers until the coming of Moshiach.
