My father, Rav Shlomo Zalman Blau, was a wonderful man.  A respected talmid chacham. A father of 15 children. It is hard to believe that he is gone.

My family went on a trip to the north of Israel, to visit kivrei tzaddikim. My little sisters and my father stopped at the Jordan river. Everything seemed good.

 

Until everything came crashing down. My sixteen year old sister was drowning. In a flash, my father jumped into the water to save her. They struggled against the current, and eventually she was snagged in a tree and pulled to safety. My father fought hard for his life, against the water. But the current was too strong.

He has left behind a broken family. There are 15 children total, 11 children at home. The youngest is less than a year old. My mother is devastated. The children are distraught.

Our father, his memory should be blessed, supported the family financially. Now my mother is alone, a new widow, traumatized, with a small baby and many children at home.

They truly have nothing. No food for basic groceries, clothing, no idea what will be with the future. 

I am begging you, please help my family.

This nightmare must end. They must find a way to smile again. I am begging you to give some hope and comfort to these traumatized children.

Baruch Hashem, we have gotten the support of Rav Chaim Kanievsky, who has given his blessing to donors who can help us.

We are praying that the generosity of strangers will get us through this hard time.

Thank you

 

Chaim
