In Mrs. Landau’s own words:
I would like to thank you for devoting your precious time and your attention to the reading of this letter…kindly helping us save our school, Ateres Chaya.
In 1993, I was approached by Rabbi Avraham Shmuel Bukiet and others to found a Chabad school in my city of Bnei Brak. As a mother to young children I refused, despite their urging.
A few days after our conversation, my three-year-old (and only) daughter became ill and even the best of our doctors did not know what was wrong with her….Her small body lay completely still in the hospital bed. I sat with her day and night, my heart filled with prayer to G-d for her recovery. I then promised to Hashem that if she recovered I would start a Chabad school for girls in Bnei Brak.
With G-d’s great kindness and help, my daughter soon made a miraculous recovery that the doctors could not explain in any natural way.
For my part, I rejoiced, and set out to honor my commitment to start the promised school.
Our schools help many children from broken families and provides a stellar chinuch al pi taharas Hakodesh. While not easy, I have toiled to ensure the success of this school.
My husband and I live very modestly—many times without basics—as we were the last to take a salary, and often that wasn’t possible.
I therefore turn to you to ask if he could please help us with this most urgent debt relief for the amount of $75,000… Whatever you can do will be a tremendous blessing for us, and may Hashem make it a tremendous blessing for you too in all that you need.
With utmost respect and gratitude!
