by Reb Akiva
A friend, a neighbor, a Jewish family is in serious trouble. A Jewish family who lives on the edge with nothing to spare has fallen over that edge. The father learns and teaches Torah and is a rav, the mother works long days. Yet, an old bill they missed that accumulated interest, a major dental problem for a child, and investing a moderate amount in trying to create a Torah institution that the promised supporters disappeared has left the family in a disaster.
The electricity is turned off in the middle of winter. (Fortunately they are in Israel so they’re only cold, not freezing to death.) The refrigerator is empty (and of course not working for want of electricity). The follow up dental care required for the child is desperately needed but the previous bill isn’t paid.
Since this is my neighbor and my fellow Jew, I can’t sit back and do nothing. Because I have a blog and an audience, I am obligated to try to use it to help.
$1,800 solves most of this family’s problems and pulls them back from the abyss. $3,000 solves all their financial problems and removes the daily worry chasing them.
I’m asking you to join me and giving them a hand. Every donation of ANY amount helps, and every time one person helps another it makes this world a better place.

May Hashem bless you abundantly for helping others and for the mitzvah of tzedakah (charity).
