Rav Yitzchok Meir Hager, shlita, renowned talmid chacham, respected Rav and trusted guest of the Lakewood community is in dire need of our help.

Over the past number of years, we have all come to know and respect Rav Hager for his gadlus b’Torah, especially in the sugya of daled minim. He has spent the time before Sukkos in Lakewood, checking thousands of lulavim and esrogim, to the great benefit of our community.

Around four years ago, Rav Hager was struck with the dreaded disease. While he fought for his life, his k”h large family was left to fend for themselves. One son, a chashuve bochur who was already considered a baki b’Shas and showed magnificent promise, was so emotionally affected that he suffered a breakdown – an ailment that affects him to this day. When Rav Hager recovered, b’chasdei Hashem, he found himself saddled by debts, under a burden of enormous financial strain to the tune of tens of thousands of dollars.

Since his recovery, Rav Hager has been forced to live the life of a nomad – traveling back and forth to try and raise money to cover his debts. The communities have been generous…but there is still a major shortfall.

The Hager family cannot go on with life this way. The esteemed rebbetzin, herself a menaheles of a large Bais Yaakov, is now suffering from her own emotional collapse – a direct result of the extreme stress. Rav Hager is teetering on the brink. Another trip is not a possibility – we need to send him home while we still have the chance!

Rabbosai, we must take action! Join now our 72 hour matching campaign to release him from debt once and fo all!
