Announcements: this came from the frum community email of Oak Park, MI

This comes from a young woman in Israel who forwarded this message which is said to come from Rabbi (Dovid) Ostroff:

"About 25 years ago there was a terrible attack on a bus outside Bayit vegan, where I think 6 people were killed, including Rav (Shlomo Zalman Aurbach T"LZ)'s nephew.

Rav Ezriel (Aurbach) told me last night that the year after that attack there was an explosion of sholom Zochor's in Bayit Vegan, I.e. the attack created a tremendous עת רצון un Shamayim and many women conceived.

There was a very choshuv rav in Bayit Vegan, who was nifter some 4 years ago, who was a talmid of Rav Aharon Kotler: Rav Leib Heiman ztz"l, who said that after such a tzarah, there is B"H an abundance of rain in EretzYisrael. It's happening now as well. It's been raining straight for 2 days now and be"H will continue till Friday. This never happens and we need it so badly.

I think p'shat is that the attack was a tremendous kaparah for K'lal Yisrael and many did teshuva and thought how to be better people. That creates a tremendous עת רצון and brings rain.
Rav EZriel told me in the name of the Zohar that rain is a sign of a time of tremendous chessed from Hashem and I want you all to daven for parnassah for your families, and especially for shidduchim for your friends and for yourselves.
It's a gevaltik עת רצון. use it and may Hashem answer all your tefillos and we should not know of any more tzaar."

Announcements: Shul Terror victims Tehillim update

I received this on my local e-mail (I don't know who wrote it, but I know who posted it). I'm passing on the whole thing

I just came home from Ein Karem from visiting my good friend Risa Rothman. I also went into Miri and spoke at length with Mrs. Mu'almi/

The best news is that Shmuel Goldstein lay tefillin this morning!! Of course many more tefillos are needed, but he's all there.

Rav Eitan Mualmi – had an 8-hour operation on his arm yesterday to try and save it. They seem optimistic. The blow to his head did not reach the brain!!!! They haven't woken him up yet because he needs kochot to deal with his arm – but Mrs. Mualmi is very optimistic and thanks Hashem that his brain is OK. (it's his left arm…)

Risa had not spoken to the doctor this morning when I saw her. The nurses said that he had a calm night. (B"H she also slept well last night). The doctors can't be sure whether there's brain damage or not – STORM SHAMAYIM!!! They're worried because he lost so much blood.

I think that I'm giving you the latest update….

We should continue to hear only besurot tovot

Please stop for a minute and pray urgently for Eitan ben Sorah – it is URGENT. He is hanging between life and death. The murderers chopped him on the head with an ax and he is in a life-threatening place right now

Please pass this on to five others and pray

This piguah hasn't taken the wounded chayalim off my list. Especially Yehuda Yitzchak ben Iris. There were a lot of miracles during Tzuk Eitan but some people are still waiting for their Nes

Announcements: Kupath Ezrah Desperately in Need of Assistance

Monsey: Kupath Ezrah Desperately in Need of Assistance​, Charity Looks for Help as Funds are Depleted

Established in 1959 by Rabbi Hershel Mashinsky Z”L and Mr. Sam Nussbaum Z”L, Kupath Ezrah was founded to address the crisis of poverty in our community. 55 years later, what started as a small project has evolved into a multifaceted organization with an annual budget exceeding $2 million. Kupath Ezrah is a beacon of hope and support to families in need.

Kupath Ezrah is unique because it belongs to the community and tends to the needs of all Jews without exception. Every contribution goes entirely to helping the needy. All operating expenses are covered by profits from Kupath Ezrah’s well established Nearly New Thrift Shop and Furniture Exchange.

One of our primary functions is providing monthly stipends to needy families in a confidential and respectful manner. Each and every recipient is treated with the utmost dignity. Unfortunately, due to the dramatic increase in the number of families desperate for financial assistance, the situation is critical. 10% of families within the greater Monsey area are currently relying on us to help them pay for food, shelter, and utilities.

We are currently supporting more than 600 families throughout the year and applications for help continue to pour in. We cannot meet this growing demand without your generosity.

Since Kupath Ezrah’s inception, we have distributed more than $30 million and have never faced a time when we were unable to send monthly stipends to those in need. However, this month we do not have the funds to support the families who rely on us and have had to delay our assistance, causing pain and embarrassment to members of our community who cannot afford basic necessities.

We are appealing for your emergency support to give relief to those who need it most.

We Need Your Help!

Donate Now
Call 1-888-MITZVOS
Mail check to PO Box 3, Monsey, NY 10952

Kupath Ezrah is a recognized 501c3 charitable organization and is endorsed by leading Rabbonim. 100% of donations go directly to needy families. All donations are tax exempt.
