LANDLORD SAYS NO NEW CONTRACT: Rambam states “the highest level of giving charity is to help the person find a job so he does not have to resort to charity!” This is exactly what we are trying to do through this campaign as you will read a bit further down.
The Weinreb family’s landlord is not renewing their rental contract! The rental properties here in Modiin Illit have risen to very high levels. The family is barely making it on the rent payment they have now. If they continue renting they will have to leave the city. If they move out of the area, they lose all of the support systems they’ve developed over the last 8 years.
Know also that the father has been fighting with Bituach Leumi (Israeli National Insurance) for disability since 2013. Although EVERY doctor that has seen him (except for the system doctor) has declared that he should have 100% disability with an aide 24/7, they refuse to accept his case. Even the person helping him fight for disability payment cannot understand why they are denying him payments.
They had been blessed with a reprieve but now MUST move. Mrs Weinreb’s mother just passed away, she was so amazing and helpful financially (got the clothing and toys for the family). Despite their MANY challenges, Mrs. Weinreb is licensed from the USA and a well sought after Massage Therapist and Mr. Weinreb is a Certified NLP Master Practitioner and Trainer, the home we found would be great for them for the following reasons: The apartment has a large room that they could use as a shared office space which will be helpful to Mr. Weinreb so he could work without having to have others help him get there.
Also, the fact that Mrs. Weinreb would be working in the home means she would still be around for an emergency (G-d forbid). Also an attached one bedroom apartment with private entrance that they could rent out to help provide a monthly income. And best of all it’s on the same street they are now living on so they will not lose any of their life saving help.
The father is diagnosed with Arnold Chiari Malformation Type 1, a genetic structural brain disorder which required brain surgery. The surgery left him with a paralyzed vocal chord, balance problems, and respiratory distress requiring oxygen at night.
The 3-year-old has Arnold Chiari Malformation Type 1 and hydrocephalus. His brain surgery left him with epilepsy which was poorly controlled by the standard medication. A second drug has been added and we are waiting to see if the combination will control the seizures. After a recent MRI we just found out that the shunt is to short in his head, and the neurosugeon is sending him to different tests and wants to see him again in a few months.The neurosurgeon said that he will have to have ANOTHER SURGERY.
His 7-year-old son also has Arnold Chiari Malformation. Severe case of ADHD, he is also a very big danger to himself (he came 1 meter away from getting hit by a bus recently) and others! They put him on a mood stabilizer called “RISPERDAL” . He also has speech delays, learning disabilities and balance problems.
His 5-year-old daughter has a serious autoimmune disease and has speech delays, learning disabilities and balance problems. She also has an issue with her right ear that is not able to have a tube as of yet because the doctor doesn’t want the issue to get worse, and they have to travel every three months to the ENT and occassionally when they need the microscope they have to travel all the way to Ashdod to the hospital there.
Their 9-year-old sister has Tourettes, as well as learning disabilities and speech delays. She is also under severe emotional distress from a recent trauma and is in the care of a psychiatrist.
After years of effort the family has:
– qualified schools that are able to handle medical crises that may come up with their 4 sick children
– doctors and specialists familiar with their case history
– community organizations for aid and assistance with basic needs… such as food
– reliable, helping and understanding neighbors
With the community supports they have established they finally have the semblance of a normal life.
We need to raise $500,000 so that the Weinrebs don’t lose everything and can finally have a chance at making a parnassa and not to need others for help.
For them this is a necessity, NOT a luxury!!! Please help.
