The merit of supporting the families of the sick, at a time when many are out of work, and in advance of the Pesach holiday, is huge.
An excerpt of a letter (READ FULL LETTER BELOW) from Rav Kanievsky & the Vizhnitzer Rebbe:
“Now, the cries of the families of desperately ill people who suffer from terrible illnesses have come before us, among them are those who stand at death’s door, and the matter is one of Pikuach Nefesh for them and their families who have no money even for bread as a result of enormous medical expenses.
Therefore, we have come together to found a special fund in Vaad Harabanim to heal, to support and to revive them.
Rav Chaim Kanievsky shlita
The Vizhnitzer Rebbe shlita”
