UPDATE June 12: Thank you to all our donors! The money is being wired to the Polish government and Avraham should be released in the coming days. We will keep you posted. 

Hello,

 

My name is Sigi Gil. We are in a very painful, extremely urgent situation and we desperately need help

 

I will explain:

 

My husband Avraham’s identity was stolen by someone who knew him well. They used his details and his bank account for fraud. Avraham was arrested by the Polish government, and taken to prison. We were frightened but assumed it would be over soon, because he is innocent.

 

For three years he has sat in Polish prison, suffering without trial. You cannot imagine what he has been through in that time. Finally this week, after negotiations between the governments, his case was brought to trial. It was determined this week that he is innocent and that he can go home -  if, by this Monday, we can pay a fine of $150,000

If we do not pay the fine, he will chas v'shalom remain in prison
 

Dear Jewish brothers and sisters around the world this is the real and true mitzvah of pidyon shvuyim, going on right now. I have spent three years home alone with my four children, unable to tell them when, or if, their father would ever come home. For the next few days only we have a chance to make a miracle and to save an innocent Jew from a horrible European prison.

 

Baruch Hashem Rav Chaim Kanievsky has written a letter on our behalf, calling on people around the world to save this precious life.

Rav Kanievsky also gave a bracha to all those who donate that, midah k'neged midah (measure for measure), they should be protected in their own lives from tragedy

 

Please, please join us and help our family raise this money. And you should be blessed with health, happiness, and parnassah for your own family, to never have to beg for the help of others.

 

Thank you. Thank you. Please, please help. Sigi
