If you are a longtime reader of BtB, then you have heard before of the very special Rabbi and Rebbetzin who brought Yiddishkeit into the life of my family. Were it not for their sweet goodness and profound influence, I doubt that Yeshiva Son would ever have gone to learn in yeshiva or gone to Israel, or that Youngest Yidlet would have gone to Israel and now be making aliyah. Were it not for their shining example of living a Torah life, I would never have known the incredible nachas of hearing my grown children fill the Shabbes table with song, just the night before last.
Right now - not next week or next month - these good people could use our help. The economic calamity that has swept the country these past few years has been especially hard for those who depend on financial support from communities that have themselves been hard hit (by what Joe Biden called "Recovery Summer" -- and then another such summer, and another).
The economic devastation of America is not limited to the charts and graphs that I post here at BtB. It is real, in the lives of real people.
I don't often ask for money here, nor do I urge you donate to many causes, but this is different. This is just about the most important cause I can imagine, that of bringing the light of Yiddishkeit into this dark world. I know that there are families upon families who are comforted, healed, served, strengthened, elevated and inspired by the unceasing efforts and good cheer of Yitzi and Dina. I know because my family has been one of them.
I beseech you to open your hearts and your wallets (as corny as that sounds), and donate as generously as you are able to Chabad of Temecula, California. In doing so, you will not only help to keep a Jewish community alive and thriving, but you will make the darkness of these harsh times recede... for an entire community of Jews.
It will mean so much to me personally if you can help at this time. In a sideways kind of way, you also will be helping me to repay my debt of gratitude for the fact that I now live a Jewish life. The more we do now, in this instance, the more Yidden there will be, living a Torah life. There is no greater cause than that which has sustained us as a people throughout all time, and which sustains us still... Please, Gd.
