From Sar HaTorah Rav Chaim Kanievsky, shlit”a:

 

“Our friend shlit”a is in dire straits. I request from each and every person to participate in this special fundraising appeal. In this merit they will be blessed with only good.” Rav Chaim Kanievsky

 

The message from the Rav is clear: A talmid chacham whose identity remains concealed for his privacy is in an urgent and life-threatening situation.

 

The Rav is aware of the details involved and has gone so far as to specify that it constitute its own urgent appeal to the Jewish People.

 

Join the Rav in saving a talmid chacham’s life, and bring into your own life Rav Kanievsky’s blessing for “only good,” together with all of the other brachos which come with responding to the urgent requests of the Gedolei HaDor.

 

Kupat Ha’Ir asks that donors give generously as the situation is highly sensitive.
