Terrorist Smashed Jerusalem Bus Window

[COMUNICATED]  Passengers screamed and ducked as a rock reportedly smashed through a Jerusalem bus window. The damages, however, reached far beyond the replacement of the glass. Though months have passed, a 16-year-old being referred to as “Shaina” has been diagnosed with PTSD and suffers severe panic attacks. This means she often loses the ability to breathe and needs to be transported to an emergency room.

Her parents have poured everything they can into her therapy and she seems to be progressing, but now they have no idea how they will afford Pesach. The family then contacted Vaad HaRabbanim, where they learned that due to their severe level of poverty, they qualified for the kimcha depischa program.

Another person being supported by this year’s Kimcha DePischa program is a 19 year old who is making the holiday alone, because her parents are both sick.

Another family just arrived in Israel from the Ukraine with nothing.

These are just three of the true and tragic stories of those who are relying on Vaad’s Kimcha Depischa program to afford basic groceries for Pesach this year. The fund has had the public support of many of the world’s biggest rabbanim, including Rav Chaim Kanievsky zt”l, Rav Mordechai Gross shlit”a, and Rav Ezrachi shlit”a.

Donors can contribute to the fund here for the next few days only.
