Some Teddybear heroes who keep us blooming at Bears from Bergenfield

All pictures were taken by me or were sent to me with the intention of being uploaded here.

What do all of these people have in common?

Bears from Bergenfield.

Over the years, we have been fortunate to have so many step forward to help us recycle teddy bears. We all know that once a child finishes playing with a teddy bear, we know that the teddy bear is still of use to some other child.

One never knows who might be next to need or want a teddy bear. It’s much better to ask if someone might be in need of a bear hug.

When in doubt, give us a shout. We will be glad to take or redirect you to someone who will want to receive.

Don’t cast. Once tossed, it’s in the past.

Stay tuned for more teddy bear heroes. There are so many to post here.

Pictured are just a few of the 20th year heroes and before.  More pictures to post soon.

Show you care/ teddy bear please share.

About the Author
Rabbi Claire conceived of the concept Bears from Bergenfield upon a routine check of the Israeli staff at camp SLC August of 2001. She realized that the world needed to wake up and become aware of the suffering the Israelis were enduring as the Palestinians continued their intifada against them. After 18 years and 195,000 teddy bears amassed and redistributed, Rabbi Claire is searching for more public platforms to proliferate and advance her message, that Jewish lives matter, especially with a teddy bear. Rabbi Claire lives in Bergen County with her husband of 38 years, Larry, and their 4 children, Sam, Shira, Seth, and Sarah Rose, plus their incoming son-in-law Ivan. For further information of how to get involved with this endearing project, contact her at
