Tehillim for Daughter of Rabbi Asher Lopatin

21

asher-lopatin1Earlier in the day, Matzav.com reported the news that Rabbi Asher Lopatin, the longtime rabbi of Congregation Anshe Sholom B’nai Israel in the Lakeview neighborhood of Chicago, will be taking over for Rabbi Avi Weiss as the head of Yeshivat Chovevei Torah in Riverdale, NY, next year.

In the interim, we have learned that Rabbi Lopatin’s daughter Cara is quite ill and is in need of a refuah sheleimah.

In correspondence to Matzav.com, Rabbi Lopatin thanked Matzav “for taking an interest in the future of Yeshivat Chovevei Torah.”

For now, however, he has asked all our readers to please be mispallel for his daughter, Yakira Avigayil bas Rivkah Leah, who will be undergoing an autologous stem cell transplant on Thursday to recover from chemotherapy.

Iy”H, the procedure will give her a long, healthy and cancer-free life,” Rabbi Lopatin told Matzav.com.

We pray that Rabbi Lopatin’s daughter will have a complete refuah and that he and his wife continue to see much nachas as well as success in their communal work and endeavors.

Again, all are asked to say Tehillim for Yakira Avigayil bas Rivkah Leah.

  1. This is what is great about Klal Yisroel. When push comes to shove, everyone sets aside hashkafic differences and just davens to Hashem for a refuah shleimah. In other circles, they would point to illnesses and say “Divine Punishment” and other nonsense. Mi KaAmcha Yisroel – Matzav, you guys are really fantastic and bring out the best of Chareidi life.. May this Elul be a time of tremendous Ahavas Yisroel and yeshuos for all of Klal Yisroel! Amain!

  2. Thank you Matzav. I’m greatly indebted to helping my daughter with a call for tefila and tehilim. She is doing well so far and all is in Hashem’s hands.

  3. Refuah shleima!
    We’ve shown, over and over again, how we come together to be nosei ol. Now the challenge is to share and fargin simchas and others’ good fortune wholeheartedly!
    May one of these “challenges” be besuros tovos for Cara.

  4. ALL OF OUR PRAYERS SHOULD BE RECITED WITH KAVANNAH IN ORDER FOR OUR REQUESTS TO BE ANSWERED BY AVEENU SHEBASHAYIM. .HE IS ATTENTIVE NOT ONLY TO OUR WORDS BUT TO OUR INNERMOST THOUGHTS, AS WELL.

  6. #18,
    Maier A, what have YOU added to the article?

    At least they were mispallel for the refuah of the cholah, and let her father know that they participate in his hopes for a refuah (apparently he does read Matzav occasionally), you just wasted letters.
