Help a Young Jew Attend a Funeral


An Oleh Chadash became very close to a young man who made aliya at the same time that he did. The best friend was unfortunately niftar unexpectedly on Erev Shabbos. The funeral is scheduled to take place in Europe where the parents are.

Both young men are in their 20's. Please do a mitzvah by assisting this young man to honour his best friend by attending the funeral. The air ticket is US$650.

We learn in Pirkei Avos that we have to "make yourself a rabbi and acquire a good friend."

Now during the time of Sefiras HaOmer is appropriate to assist our fellow Jew.

If you can assist please either:

- email rebeliyahu@gmail.com or shoshanah.s@gmail.com

- or make a donation via the our website

- or on the chip-in icon below.

If 65 Jews contribute $10, this air ticket will be raised with ease. Please note, the money is needed urgently as the funeral is in 2 days.

If you would like to know other mitzvah projects and work we are involved in you can either browse the website, this blog or email us.

Thank you for your kindness.

Rabbi Eliyahu and Shoshanah Shear
