Avos Ubanim to be Extended after Pesach in Memory of Hayeled Eliyahu Raitzik A’H

eli raitzik and fatherSubmitted by Moshe Raitzik: Ľchovod the choshuve oilom. As you may know, many people wanted to do something special as a zechus ľiylui nishmas my nephew, Hayeled Eliyahu Eliezer z”l ben R’ Shabsi Yaakov Yosef Halevi n”y Raitzik, a nine year old boy who was niftar in his sleep on the Erev Shabbos before Purim.

Together with Rabbi Mordechai Zions shlit”a, it was decided to continue the Avos U’banim program after Pesach, for Phase 2, as a zechus ľiylui nishmaso.

While the family will cover much of the cost, in order for the program to not be lacking anything, several thousand dollars will still need to be raised. As such, I am appealing that each person that would like to be a partner in this mitzvah kindly send in five dollars, with their tax deductible checks made out to ‘Avos U’banim’, and mail it to Avos U’banim, c/o (my brother) Rabbi Shabsi Raitzik at 414 Yeshiva Plaza, Apartment 4C, Lakewood, New Jersey 08701.

B’ezras HaShem a solid response will be a big chizuk to the family, and also sufficient to cover the cost involved with this project.

  1. Anon, that’s a very good question. The plan is for it to take place on Shabbos afternoons instead. All the details will be provided in due time. This article is intended simply to inform the readers that the program will be continuing after Pesach, and that additional funding is needed for it to have all the standard incentives.

  2. can you have raffles on shabbos?I used to live in westgate and if i remember correctly they had a avos ubunim on shabbos afternoon.They used to give out italian ices when it was over but there wasn’t any raffles.There was always a huge line for the ices so it must have been well attended.I think it’s a wonderful thing to try to spread that all over lakewood and it should serve as a zechus for the neshama.
