Urgent Pikuach Nefesh

R’ Reuven Elbaz is one of the most sought-after, respected Rabbis in Israel today. As crowds gathered around him recently however, the Rav’s attention could not be spared for even a moment from the story which was being told before him:

A respected family from Sorotzkin Street has been going through an excruciating ordeal– Their tiny 9 year old son Shimon is battling a rare heart disease. Doctors in Israel say they are powerless to help him, and that he must  fly to America immediately to be operated on by a specialist. Unfortunately, the trip and operation lie far beyond the family’s means. Without it, their son will likely lose his life.
