Second-hand Shop for Ethiopian Immigrants in Mevasseret Zion, Israel.

By Steven Klein |

A new second-hand shop has begun serving the new immigrants in Mevasseret Zion (suburb of Jerusalem, Israel), operated by Telfed – The South African Zionist Federation. The Telfed Ethiopian Community Initiative opened the shop last month “to provide a source of low-cost clothing and household goods, some new,” committee chairman Mel Cohen told Haaretz. “A significant number of people have been coming in.” Three volunteers – former South Africans Roy Scher and Shira Lipschitz along with U.S. native Rochelle Lando – take turns running the shop on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. Jeff Kaplan helped equip the place. Cohen said a steady flow of donations has included a recent carload of winter coats, jackets and jerseys from the Ra’anana depot that cost hundreds of shekels but sell for 20-40 shekels. To donate, call Roy (054) 468-3751 or Shira (052) 240-0073.
