A Post-Yom Kippur Appeal

Last night, as Yom Kippur began, the apartment of neighbors of mine caught fire. They were in the synagogue when it happened, and they rushed back to find that just about everything they owned is gone.

They had no insurance, and they’re dealing with some other heavy challenges as well. They have three children in and around their teens.

Donations via PayPal are being accepted at this e-mail address: jacob [at] jerusalemcapital [dot] net. (If you decide to donate in this way, please add a comment that the donation is for the family mentioned above. Also, I know the owner of the e-mail address personally and can vouch for his integrity. Any donation you send there will reach the family who needs it.)

If you’d prefer the snail-mail address of one of the people who is coordinating donations, please e-mail me and I’ll send it to you.

In the merit of helping those in need, may we be blessed with a good and sweet year.
