Sometimes, generosity comes in waves.

After being told that his Oceanside, L.I., synagogue had won $10,000 in a Yeshiva University Facebook contest, beating out four other synagogues and a day school ravaged by Superstorm Sandy, Rabbi Jonathan Muskat decided to share his winnings with them.

“We felt so many communities also suffered that it was only right we share this act of chesed (kindness) with other communities that suffered damage as well,” he explained.
