Keren Yitzchok Isaac

Rabbi Yitzchok Isaac Reichman a"h

Received via e-mail from Rabbi Dovid Sears:

This week, I attended a meeting of askanim and chaveirim about a newly-created fund for the almana and ten children of Rabbi Yitzchok Isaac Reichman a"h. Reb Yitzchok, an accomplished talmid chokhom in the Stoliner Kollel and a key figure in the Breslover Shtibel of Borough Park, passed away recently from complications following heart transplant surgery at age 45. Like virtually everone present, I committed myself to try to raise funds for Reb Yitzchok's family.

If we all work together on this important mitzvah, we should be able to insure that the Reichman family's financial needs will be covered until his children grow up and can provide for themselves, be"H.

This may sound like a tall order.

But, in fact, a similar campaign was spearheaded by some of the same askanim on behalf of my late chavrusa Rabbi Yitzchok Wolpin a"h's family a year ago, with tremendous success. And what made all the differences was the tzedakah given by people who didn't even know the niftar, but recognized the need and wanted to help. Whether you give $18 or $18,000, it all adds up.

THIS IS A CHANCE TO PERFORM THE MITZVAH OF TZEDAKAH AT A TREMENDOUSLY HIGH LEVEL!

Therefore, I urge you to join us by sending your tax-deductable check to:
