INCREDIBLE! Misaskim Volunteers Sift Through Mountain of Trash And RECOVER LOST TEFILLIN!
Date: January 14, 2019

Thanks to the incredible work of the Misaskim Organization, a Chaim Berlin Yeshiva Bochur has been reunited with his Tefillin.

Rabbi Jack Meyer, founder of Misaskim received a call from a family member that their son’s Tefillin had been lost, and it appeared they were accidentally thrown into the garbage. Making matters worse, today was trash pickup on that Brooklyn street, and the garbage truck had long left the area.

Meyer quickly contacted local elected officials, including Councilman Chaim Deutsch, who convinced the Department of Sanitation to allow the truck to be isolated, and a team of volunteers to sift through the entire truck of garbage.

As can be seen in the photos, the volunteers wore haz-mat suits for the non-envious task. The truck dumped tons of trash onto the floor at a Sanitation facility, and the group began painstakingly searching through each bag of trash. Bichasdei Hashem, the Tefillin were found!

A tweet from the NYC Sanitation Department said “AMEN– lost religious items are recovered from transfer station by Coney Island resident and his friends. Items were mistakenly tossed in trash and found. Divine intervention with an assist from DSNY”.

Thank you Councilman Chaim Deutsch for your constant partnership and assistance! Thank you to the NYC Sanitation Department for your understanding, respect and strong support in this mission allowing the volunteers to retrieve this precious religious item. Thank you to the Misaskim volunteers and others involved for your tremendous efforts and success!

Truly incredible to see what teamwork can accomplish!
