    I don’t know if anyone remembers me from this topic that I started:

    Basically, without regaling anyone here with more of my woes than is necessary, I just want to share the (unfortunate) news that the situation has only been worsening with time, and I am in immediate need of serious assistance. If anyone has any idea how to go about getting it, you would be doing my family and I a tremendous, desperately-needed chessed.


    Are you in the NY area?

    How about obtaining Tomchei Shabbos, applying for welfare, food stamps, medicaid, wic, heap and calling the Metropolitan Council on Jewish Poverty and the UJA and United Way.


    HaLeiVi: Yes. In Brooklyn

    Drey kup: Please read the original thread. I have done all of those things.

    The little I know

    I am neither minimizing the need for assistance, nor do I in any way mock the mitzvah of tzedokoh. I am among many who is appalled at the abuse of one of our greatest mitzvos – the collecting of tzedokoh – that has superseded the main activioty in most every shul in the heavy concentrations of frum population. Every schnorrer endows himself with the privilege of disturbing mispallelim, regardless of where in davening they are at, with requests for tzedokoh. In reality, the poskim address this issue, and the unanimous piskei denim are that it is ossur to disturb someone in the middle of tefilo or kriyas haTorah. We have now seen the CR become a place for solicitation of tzedokoh. Again, without minimizing the mitzvah or the unfortunate situation , I question whether this is the place for this.


    He is soliciting names of baalei tzedaka, not funds. However, even if someone were to give a name, we wouldn’t post it for obvious reasons.

    Hatzlocha, David Bar-Magen, we hope to hear soon that your situation has improved.
