Please have me, anonymous mother in mind

Hi Ladies
I am in the hospital post surgery I had early morning today (Wednesday).
I don't feel comfortable disclosing a tehillim name as I have a unique name.
But please if you can have me in mind by lighting candles, separating challah, making brachos, or davening / tehillim I would really appreciate it and G-d will surely know who I am. If all goes well my expected recovery tme should be about 2 months or so.
Unfortunately only my husband/kids and 1 distant relative know about my surgery.
We both have abusive family backgrounds.
And hugs are welcome too!

Chassan With Sick Parents Stayed Strong, Untill He Got Sick

Rav Yitzchok Grossman released a video this week on behalf of a young man whose family the Rav knows personally. The young man’s parents are both ill, and he had already been struggling to make his own wedding. In a painful turn of events, the chassan became ill as well. They are now in a state of panic, unsure how they will manage. Transcription of the video reads as follows:

“My brothers and sisters,

I know this chassan and kallah. The chassan grew up in a holy home. But the father and the mother, especially the mother, are very sick. He has been through things in his life. It was very difficult at home.

He is engaged to a very good kallah.

What happened next? He just became sick also - We need to help him.

To be healthy, to marry, to build his home and to have nachas. I can’t explain to you the biggest mitzvah that you have to help in this case. I know the family, a holy family. I know this boy.

Please! Do everything! It's the biggest mitzvah.

This is hachnasas kallah, this is bikur cholim, this is pidyon nefesh. All these mitzvos together.

And in this merit, that you will help, Hashem should bless you to marry off your children with only happiness and health, measure for measure. In the merit of this mitzvah Hashem should bless you with all the brachos he promised in our holy Torah.”

Those who are able to do this mitzvah of hachnasas kallah, bikur cholim, and pidyon nefesh can receive the Rav’s blessing to marry off their children in health here for a limited time.

Baruch Dayan Ha’Emes: Rabbi Refael Schoenfeld, 59

The world lost another giant last week, with the passing of 59-year-old father of 12 Rabbi Refael Schoenfeld. Schoenfeld was famous throughout Israel for his volunteer work with ZAKA and the Cheva Kadisha. He dedicated his life to giving others a proper Jewish burial. It was with tremendous pain that his colleagues buried him after his life was taken by COVID-19.

More pained than the countless families who had benefited from Rabbi Schoenfeld’s chesed, however, was his own widow and 12 children. They have anxiously awaited his return from the hospital since last month, and have now had to accept that their father is never coming home.

An emergency fund has been started to help the Schoenfeld navigate the future. The fund asks an interesting question, which causes us to re-evaluate the tremendous value of what volunteer heroes do for free:

“We ask you to please take a moment to imagine, if Rabbi Schoenfeld had been paid for his hours volunteering. Doing difficult, painful work that most would be unable to handle. Imagine if he had been paid what he deserved and if that money had gone toward supporting his household. Imagine the amount that work was worth - an unimaginable amount - enough for his family to be comfortable for years to come! But of course he happily gave of himself and saved the reward for the world to come.

However now his children are left without the financial basis for a future. Now we must join together to repay Rabbi Schoenfeld for his tremendous impact on klal yisroel, by providing his devastated widow & children with comfort & stability. This is our way to say Thank you.’”

Those who are able to say “Thank you” to Rabbi Schoenfeld by donating to help his family can do so here for a limited time.
