Synagogue offers shelter for homeless

John Benfatti, Norris Ogard, and Vic Cipullo set up the emergency overnight shelter at the Riverdale-Yonkers Society for Ethical Culture. The Hebrew Institute of Riverdale plans to launch a similar shelter on Tuesday nights (in partnership with BronxWorks) starting in the Fall of 2018, but is being met with some opposition from the community.
