The moment is yours to heed the cry for help in the form of a much-needed donation.  

An urgent mitzvah has come our way to save a sofer’s eyesight and to ensure his family can keep their home during the operation and his subsequent recuperation. The middle-aged sofer provided mezuzos tefillin, and all manner of kisvei kodesh to the community for a decade. He was just diagnosed with sub-retinal hemorrhage, a disease of the eye. The ophthalmologists confirm that further degeneration can be halted, and even full recovery is possible, if treatment begins immediately. However, this disease progresses rapidly, and with each passing day the chances of lasting long term damage increase and the probability of a full recovery diminish. The cost of the operation vastly exceeds the sofer’s medical insurance reimbursement so we must make up the shortfall.

Please, Please donate now!

Your support will enable the sofer to retain his eyesight. Naturally, he will then be able to continue providing parnassah for his wife and young children by writing for the community for many more years.

Your concern & support is appreciated & still necessary more than you can imagine. 

Please act now and contribute!

Thank you & Tizku L'Mitzvos!

     

Rabbi Yeshaya Yaakov Portugal,                                               Son of the Skulener Rebbe
