It happened a just over three years ago.

Jews worldwide were still under the impression of Yom Kippur. With renewed vigor, feeling spiritually cleansed, everyone was busy preparing for the upcoming joyous days of Sukkos. Suddenly, the terrifying news spread among the religious moshavim (rural communities) in the Negev. A tragic car accident had left a vibrant 60 year-old Jew dead.

 He was the essential baal-chesed, a truly benevolent, caring man. He was the first to help anyone in need of assistance from his small, tightly-knit community. Even the short drive that had proved to be his last was a mitzvah mission. He had set out to buy cots for members of the community to enable them to fulfill the mitzvah of sleeping in the sukkah properly. He did this without expecting remuneration. As will all of his good deeds, he set out to perform this one graciously, with a look of pure joy on his radiant face.

And then, the unthinkable happened. In a fell swoop, this father and grandfather, spouse and friend was no more; the casualty of a horrifying accident that plunged his family into a state of crisis. The deceased left behind staggering debts. Members of the family did their utmost to pay these off, and undertook the support of the grieving widow and orphans. To this day, they are still paying off their late relative's debts each month.

Finally, a ray of light pierces the darkness. His son has become engaged to a wonderful girl.

But the looming burden of wedding expenses casts a shadow of its own over the joy of the orphaned chasan (bridegroom) and his widowed mother.

We will not let those who already have suffered enough fall back into the arms of despair. If we all join forces, we can ensure that this young man will stand under the chuppah (marriage canopy) with dignity and joy.

In the merit of this great mitzvah, may you and all of your loved ones enjoy lasting good health, happiness and prosperity, and be blessed with continued success in all of your endeavors.

 

יהודים ברחבי העולם היו עדיין תחת הרושם של יום הכיפורים הקדוש והטהור. עם ישראל הלכו מחיל אל חיל, בהכנות המרובות לקראת חג הסוכות, זמן שמחתנו. כרעם ביום בהיר התפשטה הידיעה הנוראה בין ישובי הדרום. יהודי חשוב בן 60, מוותיקי אחת הקהילות החשובות בדרום, נהרג בתאונת דרכים טרגית.

 

הוא היה בעל-חסד גדול, אדם נדיב באמת, אכפתי. הוא היה הראשון לעזור לכל הזקוקים לסיוע, למקטן ועד גדול בני הקהילה נעזרה על ידו רבות בדרכים מגוונות. הכל בנועם, בפשטות, בחן של עשיית חסד. אפילו הנסיעה האחרונה שלו הייתה שליחות של מצווה.  הוא יצא לקנות מיטות מתקפלות עבור הגמ"ח שבניהולו כדי לאפשר לתושבי המושב לקיים את מצוות השינה בסוכה כראוי ובנוחות.  ככל מעשיו הטובים, הוא עשה את זה מבלי לצפות לתמורה כלשהי. הוא יצא לבצע את המשימה הזאת זאת כשפניו זורחות בשמחה טהורה ועם חיוכו המפורסם על פניו, כמו תמיד.

ואז,  הבלתי יאומן קרה. ברגע אחד של חריקת בלמים, זכוכיות מתנפצות, ומתכת שמתפרקת ונקרעת, האבא, הסבא, בן הזוג, החבר -אדם שהוא בכל בשביל כל כך הרבה אנשים- איננו. הוא נהרג בתאונה מחרידה. המשפחה השבורה נכנסה למשבר רציני. המנוח הותיר אחריו חובות עתק. הקרובים ובני המשפחה עשו כל שביכולתם כדי לשלם את החובות, ולתמוך באלמנה והיתומים שעוד נשארו בבית. ועד היום, הם עדיין משלמים את החובות מידי חודש בחודשו.

כעת, בשעה טובה ומוצלחת קרן אור נכנס לבית. בנו של המנוח ז"ל, הבחור המופלג התארס עם כלה כלילת המעלות, ממשפחה נפלאה. ענבי הגפן בענבי הגפן. דבר נאה ומתקבל.

אבל העול הגדול של הוצאות החתונה מטיל צל שמאיים על שמחת החתן היתום ואמו האלמנה.

אם נשלב כוחות, נוכל להבטיח כי הבחור היקר הזה יעמוד תחת החופה בכבוד ובלב שמח.

בזכות מצווה גדולה זו, תתברכו מן השמים בבריאות, באושר ובעושר, ובכל מילי דמיטב.
