These kids were forced to beg for this

Several months ago, Rav Yaakov Koritz, Beit Shemesh father of 8, was happy to receive news that despite a heart attack at the age of 47, the doctors were optimistic. Though they had no food in the fridge, no money left for school tuition, they were hopeful that with a few more weeks in the hospital, Tatty would be home with the kids again.

Little did they know: He would never leave his bed again.

On the 26th of Av, just two weeks ago, Yaakov Koritz passed away.

His children still residing at home are reportedly living in a state of squalor. Without money for rent, or other essentials, they have been forced to beg their friends & family for help. It is a tragic sight: Another home destroyed by illness, another family devastated by the nightmare that is watching a loved one die slowly.

Donations are being collected to help Rebbetzin Koritz and her children recover from their crippling debts and cover their basic needs.
