Penina's Helping Hand

Penina's Helping Hand

You may already know that we're training for the Miami Marathon this January in Memory of Penina Rubinoff a"h. We are running for something important. We are running to raise money for Penina's Helping Hand, a division of Chai Lifeline dedicated to helping children and their families who are dealing with Illness and loss.

PENINA'S HELPING HAND (PHH) is a division of Chai Lifeline that was started in the memory of Penina Rubinoff. She was an exemplary Toronto mother of four whose compassion and generosity were experienced far beyond the realm of her private family unit. Despite the pain and challenges she experienced throughout her ordeal, chessed (good deeds) and tzedaka (charity) remained not just values that she idealized, but areas in which she completely immersed herself and remained active. Although it was often difficult and even painful, she always tried to maintain a normal family life. To her, family was everything.

PENINA’S HELPING HAND is a fitting tribute to Penina Rubinoff, an extraordinary woman who will always be remembered for her love, compassion, and tzedaka. Penina’s Helping Hand offers year-round programs, services, and social support to over 250 children dealing with the loss of a parent or a severely ill parent. The Annual Disney Trip, case management, counselling, holiday gifts, tutoring, gala holiday parties, family retreats, and crisis intervention services bring help and hope to these children, and their families.

Training is not easy, but neither is dealing with illness. If the children of Chai Lifeline can fight each day, We can do this for them. But we can't do this without your support. We need your help to raise as much money as possible for these kids. So please, push the donate button and help us put smiles on the faces of sick children. Let's do this together! Let's make dreams come true.
