What were your challenges before approaching RotaCentral?
When my grandfather passed away back in 2020, I remember sitting in his flat ready to daven mincha, calling everyone I knew to see if they were able to help us make a minyan for the shiva. It was a struggle but eventually we got a minyan.
We were a well known family in our community, but it got me thinking… How many people are out there without much family? How many people don’t have so many friends in the area? How many people don’t get a minyan for a Shiva/Levaya.
I had an idea.
I was going to set up an organisation whereby it’s sole purpose would be to make sure that every single Levaya/Shiva has a minyan. To achieve such a goal we needed volunteers. With the help of Nochum, we sent out one advert in a local email advertiser and I remember receiving a phone call shortly after the ad went out.
How has RotaCentral supported you in helping to achieve your goals?
A few weeks later, Nochum and I were sitting in front of Paul Ross discussing how his amazing platform would help us achieve our goal. He set up everything for us and was there every step of the way.
Because of RotaCentral we can run ‘Click A Minyan’ with ease.
Till today (and still going), I can proudly say that we have attended and provided a Minyan for every single request brought to us. We have had calls from people who just lost a parent or spouse – and they were struggling to organise even the most basic thing in burying their beloved – getting a minyan to say Kaddish. We have had calls from Rabbonim, who were on their way to officiate a Levaya for someone with no living family at all, a complete Mais Mitzvah, and within minutes, (thanks to RotaCentral) we had 10 men on their way to send off this Mais accordingly.
How has RotaCentral impacted Click A Minyan?
- Since May 2020 we have had over 100 calls
- Over 800 volunteers attending
- 253 hours of volunteering. This is calculated for the time spent at a Levaya (average 30 mins)
None of this could have happened if it wasn’t for Paul Ross and Adam Burr – you are both very much part of this organisation and you are definitely meriting from the good it has done in this world.
