Gerassy Family Campaign

$152,639 of $900,000 raised

raised by 738 people in 5 months

R' Yaakov Gerassy was a wonderful husband and father to his wife and six children. Tragically, he suddenly passed away without any notice at only 47 years old. His wife now bears the burden of supporting herself and six unmarried Yesomim with no means of support. All money raised will be allocated under the direct guidance of Rabbi David Ozeri and the Flatbush Community Fund's Rabbinical Council (R' Elya Brudny, Rabbi Reisman, Rabbi Lieff, Rabbi Bergman). Please donate generously and help ease the burden on this family!
