Q: What types of donations can you accept?
We accept a wide range of Judaica items, including Kiddush cups, candlesticks, menorahs, dreidels, Seder plates, Matzah plates, Havdalah sets, unused Yahrzeit candles, holiday decorations, serving platters, bowls, mugs, Tzedakah boxes, Challah boards and covers, and jewelry. We will also sometimes accept wall hangings, framed art, Haggadot, outdoor statues and lawn decorations, and more on a case-by-case basis.
Q: Can I donate items that are broken or need repair?
We kindly request that you only donate something you would like to receive - heirloom/vintage, gently used, or newish items are preferred. Please do not donate broken items, those with missing pieces, or items that are destroyed. There’s a difference between the silver needing to be polished and the shamash being broken off the Hanukkiah.
Q: Do you accept books or kippot?
No, we do not accept books or kippot. We recommend reaching out to organizations such as PJ's Library Atlanta, Hillels of Georgia, BBYO, or your local synagogue or library for donations of books or kippot. Unfortunately, we are also unable to accept vintage siddur, prayer books, or old Maxwell House Coffee/Publix haggadot. If you have any questions about this, please contact us at email@example.com.
Q: When can I donate?
We typically hold donation drives after the High Holidays, Hanukkah, and Passover. These events coincide with times when people are cleaning for the holidays or putting items away. Please follow us on Facebook and Instagram for updates.
Q: Do I need to RSVP for a donation drive?
No, there is no need to RSVP! You are always welcome to join us in the spirit of tradition and community.
Q: Can I host a donation drive within my organization or synagogue?
Yes, we encourage and welcome the opportunity to host donation drives with other synagogues, nonprofits, or Sisterhood groups. Please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to partner with us!
Q: Can you come to my part of Atlanta?
Sure! We love to set up at events already happening (e.g., Kosher BBQ, Hanukkah Bazaar, Sisters In the Sukkah) or create events with your synagogue or organization. So where we go is often dependent on those events.
Sometimes we host donation drives and rehoming events that are just us setting up a table, waiting for you! We will often put out a poll on our Facebook group to find the best areas for that time of year to make sure we reach as many people as possible in a couple of events. We also try to schedule the timing of the event based on the location (e.g., synagogues often have to close their doors by 5pm), work schedules, school, and traffic – try being the keyword there! If you are unable to come, we suggest a Judaica carpool – send your donation with a friend who can come! If you feel the location is just too far for you, hopefully the next event is closer to where you live, and be sure to vote In the poll!
Q: What if I have a large box of Judaica and can't wait for a donation drive?
Please reach out to us at email@example.com so that we can talk!
Q: Is there any cost associated with donating items to your organization?
No, there is no cost associated to donate to L’dor V’dor Judaica.
Q: How else can I support L’dor V’dor Judaica?
Please share our posts on social media! Tell your friends and families. Think of us when you visit yard sales! Additionally, with your financial support, we can keep L’dor V’dor running – ensuring that Jews of all backgrounds can keep our traditions alive for generation to generation. Your tax-deductible donation** goes to purchasing Judaica at estate sales and thrift shops, as well as day to day necessities like storage, administration and overhead costs associated with being a non-profit. We also work with other Jewish groups around the country to bring L’dor V’dor Judaica to more communities.
