“This year we’re all sleeping in the sukkah, all 10 kids. They shut off our electricity because we couldn’t pay the bill. Baruch Hashem the electricity of the sukkah is hooked up to the building itself, so we can have light.”
“Every chol hamoed we play cards and whoever wins gets to have chicken in their soup instead of just broth. I thought that was normal until I got older…”
“I was in my sukkah davening that there should be a miracle and we’d be able to afford shabbos shoes for the kids. Their old pairs didn’t fit and the holiday was coming. Then, a knock came on the wooden boards. It was a man with a check from Vaad HaRabbanim. I burst into tears right then and there”
Sukkos is here and there are many families in Israel who simply can’t afford what they need. The Gedolei Hador have heard their stories and know that this time is crucial. Not just for them, but for us too:
The Midrash tells us that Hashem told Avraham: “If [the Jewish People] do not attain atonement on Yom Kippur, it will be given on Hoshana Rabbah.”
This Hoshana Rabbah, the Gedolei Hador will pray with the utmost concentration for all those who donate $180 or more here to help poor families make Sukkos:
Harav Dov Landau shlita
Harav Moshe Hillel Hirsch shlita
The Vizhnitzer Rebbe shlita
The Rachmastrivka Rebbe shlita
Harav Reuven Elbaz shlita
Harav Yaakov Hillel shlita
They will daven for you on Hoshanah Rabbah, the day when the decree for 5784 is sealed and made final.
This is your chance for redemption. This is their chance to put food on the table. The sukkahs are built and the stores are closing – every minute counts – please donate here to help.
Donations can also be made to Vaad Harabanim Fund #6194 by phone at 1877-722-2646 or by mailing a check to Vaad Harabanim 221 Regent Drive Lakewood, NJ 08701
