URGENT MESSAGE TO KLAL YISROEL

The message below from Rav Ezrachi below is so powerful, so clear, that it needs little further explanation. Rav Matisyahu Katz shlit"a, one of the great talmidei chachamim of our generation, is tragically ill. His medical expenses are so astronomically expensive, helping him during this time has become a matter of life and death, as confirmed by one of the great leaders of the esteemed Mir community himself, Rav Yitzchak Ezrachi shlit"a.

Rav Ezrachi is calling on klal yisroel to help save this man, and to join together as one to save a life. Saving Rav Katz would not only return a man to his wife and children, but will return a teacher to his talmidim. 

Please do not hesitate to give what you can, as the situation is gravely urgent.

"I am seeking help, from the bottom of my soul, for my friend, the Tzaddik and Gaon Rav Matityahu Katz shlita, one of the great Talmidei Chachamim, a long-standing pillar of our Yeshiva, who has had close relationships with our Rabbanim, the Roshei Yeshiva, Rav Leizer Yudel Finkel (the current Mirrer Rosh Yeshiva), my Father in Law- Rav Chaim Shmuelevitz, and my brother in law- Rav Nachum Pertzovitz zt"l , who spreads Torah to the masses through tremendous Mesirus Nefesh.

 

Unfortunately he has fallen ill and the overwhelming monthly expenses of his medical care are enormous. As a result, he has accumulated tremendous debt which is threatening his ability to continue with his Torah teaching.

 

Therefore, we are extending our plea to the members of the Chabura specifically, and all of Hashem's nation in general, to heroically rise to the occasion and assist in every way possible those who are involved in saving this poor man from his state of poverty, which constitutes as truly a matter of life and death.

 

And all those who help and contribute should be blessed from the Source of all blessings, as is promised to those who support and hold up Torah learners.

 

Written and signed in honor of the Torah, those who honor and support it and in honor of this great Mitzvah,

 

Rav Yitzchak Ezrachi

Mir Yeshiva, Yerushalaim"
