The family in question, the Shlessingers, reportedly lost all of their money in a scam. They have now gone overnight from normal family, to literally homeless.
According to moving footage of married daughter Leah Shlessinger [below], the 7 children living at home have “no food to eat.”
The familly undoubtedly hopes that this public confirmation of their character & the severity of their situation from a revered Rabbi will inspire potential donor.
An emergency fund has been established, and the Shlessinger family’s very survival hinges on its success.
