Viznitz Surprise – 5 Million NIS Raised in 24 Hours


Viznitz Chassidim in Bnei Brak managed to raise an incredibly successful fundraising campaign and pull in 5,000,000 NIS in 24 hours, six hours shy of their intended target of 30 hours. They were so successful that they set their own bar higher to 6,000,000.

The donation came from more than 8,000 people who donated online or gave money to volunteers who were going door-to-door. These donations were doubled as friends of the Rebbe agreed to match shekel for shekel all donations that arrived.
