New Tefillin Fund

We are sad to learn that one of our guest speakers for the Breslov Center, who lives in Eretz Yisrael, was the victim of a theft recently. His Tefillin were stolen. This rabbi has barely enough money to meet his daily living expenses, his wife needs medical treatment for a chronic condition, and now on top of everything, he must borrow Tefillin every morning to pray. Therefore, we are undertaking a campaign to buy him a pair of Rashi Tefillin. (He has the use of someone else's Rabbeinu Tam Tefillin for the present time.) It would be a tremendous zekhus to help a person of this rabbi's stature as a talmid chokhom and oved Hashem.

Helping others to obtain Tefillin is a great tikkun (act of spiritual repair) for having neglected this mitzvah at any point in one's life.

In fact, wearing Tefillin is comparable to studying the Torah day and night (Midrash Tehillim). Therefore, it is an extremely great thing to help another person to perform this mitzvah by buying him Tefillin!

Since the Breslov Center no longer has tax-exempt status, we have asked Rabbi Rosenberg of Eizer L'Shabbos to sponsor this tzedakah campaign. Checks should be made out to Eizer L'Shabbos. But be sure to write "Tefillin Fund" on your check.

If all you write is "Eizer L'Shabbos," the money will be used to pay for food packages to needy families in Tzefat, Israel -- a very worthy cause, but right now our priority is getting those Tefillin!

We are very grateful to Rabbi Rosenberg for his lev tov in helping out with this mitzvah. He is always there to help a person in need.

Please send your tax-deductible contribution to:

Eizer L'Shabbos
