Hello,

 

We are a family of 9 who has seen more suffering than a family should ever see. Baruch Hashem, my rebbe Rav Asher Weiss has taken personal responsibility for speaking to the public on our behalf. Otherwise, I don’t know what we would do.

 

It all began many years ago when a motorcycle accident forced me to close my business. Our income sank lower and lower, and my wife and I struggled to support our 7 children. My wife is a doctor. We lived very very simply, but happily. Then, at our daughter’s sheva brachos, we got a call that would change our lives forever: my wife had cancer. For a torturous year she fought the disease and Baruch Hashem she lived. Shortly after her remission, however, it was my turn: I was diagnosed with cancer as well.

 

After the illness that my wife and I have endured, our finances have been severely depleted. We did not want to beg, did not want to be a burden on anyone, and so we sold our home.

 

Today we are more poor than we have ever been. Our dear daughter is engaged to be married. It is tragic that we cannot help her to obtain the things that a kallah needs. Any way that you can help us would truly be putting food on the table, and a roof over our heads. We never dreamed that it could get this bad.

 

Please read this message [transcription of video above] from Rav Weiss, who has so generously vouched for our family, and our need:

 

“I am turning to you with my whole heart to all my acquaintances, friends and to all of Am Yisroel, merciful ones and doers of good deeds, to be of help to one of my dear students who is important and beloved.

He is dear to me and a wonderful person, who would rather be a giver than a taker.

A person who is full of kindness, and goes out of his way each day to help others however he can. He now finds himself in a horrible financial situation, financial difficulties that overshadow his life. The story begins about 20 years ago with a motorcycle accident in which he was severely injured. As a result of his injury his business suffered. He was forced to close his business and went into debt.

He and his wife, who is a doctor, did their best not to become a burden – not on the community and not on their children. They tried every possible way to support themselves: they live simply and buy only the most basic necessities. They sold their house. Yet still a heavy financial burden hangs over them.

The difficult financial situation threatens their home.

Therefore, I am turning to people of chesed, and to everyone whoever they may be, It is a great and powerful mitzvah to save a precious person, and to save a family. Since their great financial downturn, they have married off 3 children. Sadly, both he and his wife were diagnosed with cancer. The wife’s disease was discovered during the sheva brachos for one of their daughters. Thank G-d, after intensive treatments they are both healthy .

They are both healthy and able to function, may G-d grant them continued health and long and good life, but their financial situation threatens their health, peace of mind and their home.

Therefore, it is a great mitzvah to help them.

I bless each person who will participate in this great mitzvah that G-d will fulfill his dreams in the best way with only health, abundance, nachas and happiness all their days.

 

Thank you.” Rav Asher Weiss shlit”a
