The following letter was written by Shliach Rabbi Mendel Gluckowsky, updating the donors to the emergency campaign to save a fellow Shliach, Rabbi Aharon Eliezer Ceitlin about the campaign results.
Thanks to the unprecedented outpour of love and support expressed by you and thousands of Anash and Shluchim around the world, (and the tremendous efforts made by Rabbi Y. Gerlitzky – Tel Aviv, Rabbi Y. Kramer – Tveria and Rabbi N. Lurie – Kfar Chabad,) the amount needed to immediately start the treatment was raised within less than two days!!!
This powerful and immediate response made it possible for this life-saving procedure to begin as early as the end of this week! It has given Rabbi Ceitlin a tremendous boost of joy and confidence, seeing that he is not alone in this battle – he has thousands around the world generously partnering with him. This renewed spirit and optimism may be equally as important as the actual treatment.
Our NEW goal!
All donations from this point on will be dedicated to alleviating any financial stress from Rabbi Ceitlin and his family, making sure that they have all they need both for general expenses and for future travel and medical costs.
We hope and pray that in the merit of the tremendous expression of Achdus and Ahavas Yisroel, R’ Aaron Lazer will have a quick and complete recovery. And we will merits the ultimate and complete Geula NOW
With true appreciation,
Rabbi Menachem Mendel Gluckowsky
