vishA woman affiliated with the Vishnitz chassidic court who has a severe illness R”L traveled from the USA to Eretz Yisrael to marry off a son. Due to the severity of her condition she has been hospitalized. The Rebbe Shlita called to bring the sick mother from the hospital under medical supervision to the chupah to elicit HKBH’s rachamim. The rebbe added that his ancestors and the parents of the sick woman are certainly present and they must beseech the Kisei HaKavod with their tefilos on behalf of those in need of a refuah.

The family turned to R’ Effie Feldman who heads the Bnei Brak branch of the Mayanei HaYeshua chessed organization for assistance. Ichud Hatzalah provided an ambulance for the mother and a team from Mayanei HaYeshua Hospital headed by Dr. Uriel Levinger took part in the chupah, escorting the mother. The rebbe personally appealed to the hospital director to permit the mother to attend and he agreed.

After the chupah the rebbe gave a bracha to Dr. Levinger, Effie Feldman, and Ichud Hatzalah volunteer Eliezer Klein, thanking them for making the event possible.
