Eizer L'Shabbos - Winter Emergency Campaign

(Painting by Anna Kheifetz)

Rabbi Rosenberg's phone continues to ring off the hook. Each story he hears is more heartbreaking than the next, especially during these difficult winter months.

A man confined to a wheelchair without legs doesn't have any money for food.

A family with nine children doesn't even have a slice of bread to share amongst them. Their twelve year-old son's growth has been stunted due to malnourishment and he has been asking others, "Daven for me that I should grow."

A family lacking the money necessary to pay the electricity bills is sitting shiva for the loss of their child in an freezing cold apartment.

Please consider sending a minimum of $50 to Eizer L'Shabbos to help a family in Tsfat who is suffering this winter.

Tax-deductible donations can be sent to:
