Yungeleit are most often financially-strapped, living frugally, with no money to spare. From time to time, however, they see some relief, like on Thursday, when noted Torah philanthropist Shlomo Yehuda Rechnitz surprised yungeleit with a distribution of money.
Rechnitz, who is currently in Eretz Yisroel, traveled to Modi’in Illit to be mevaker choleh his brother-in-law.
Upon leaving his brother-in-law’s house, he began heading toward Yerushalayim, but stopped a yungerman, handed him $100, and asked him to daven for his brother-in-law.
Rechnitz continued driving, making stops in various parts of the city, distributing money to yungeleit who happened to pass by, giving each one a $100 bill.
Rechnitz then boarded one of the bus lines in Modi’in Illit and continued to distribute money to every yungerman, wives of yungeleit, and others.
After he got off the bus, he met a blind boy who was waiting with his older sister. He gave them a $100 bill and told the boy to ask his father to buy him toys.
Rechnitz, it is said, gave out an estimated $25,000 to bnei Torah and their families on Thursday.
