Yom Kippur info. A Git Gebencht Yur! Have an Easy fast!

We at עול"ם - The Jewish Crohn's & Colitis Support Group (JCCSG) would like to wish you and your family again, a good and sweet, happy and prosperous year. A year of Nachas and Parnasah and all you need. And of course a Healthy year. May we all be inscribed and sealed in the Book of Life.

As a reminder, please discuss with your Rabbe/Rav/Dayan AND Doctor regarding your fasting, taking your medications, and/or about taking IV (Intravenous) fluids.

After we were asked by a lot of our members, we're sending a list of IV Center's provided by our heroic Chevra Hatzolah

The providers where you should call to arrange are asking you to call early enough so they should have the Fluids and it should not take that long for them! Remember, they are volunteers!
