Ten years ago, Kupas Zichron Moshe was established by Rav Aharon Nimerovsky to assist needy families in the Zichron Moshe neighborhood of Yerushalayim with their Shabbos and Yom Tov expenses. The kupah operates under the auspices of Rav Gamliel Rabinovich, Rav Avrohom Ehrlanger, Rav Moshe Elyashiv and Rav Yitzchok Soloveitchik.
Today, over 400 families benefit from this kupah, with a massive disbursement during Chodesh Elul to cover the steep costs of making Yom Tov.
This year, the need is greater than it’s ever been.
The coronavirus pandemic has not allowed for the regular overseas fundraising that has been the lifeline of many of the aniyim in the neighborhood. In addition, the kupah has regularly relied upon the assistance of the many visitors who come to Yerushalayim for Sukkos, who will not be coming this year due to the restrictions.
They need help.
They need our help.
We must not let them down.
Rav Gamliel has guaranteed an unusual bracha for all those that will partake in his effort to help his neighbors make Yom Tov.
