Visitors from abroad flank to the home of R’ Yitzchok Tovye Weiss and R’ Yaakov Meir Shechter for a blessing. Long lines snake around their yerushalmi home as the crowd waits in the heat. But these gedolim are not home. For almost 40 years they have been keeping to a special Chol Hamoed routine; collecting tzedakah for the Oneg Shabbos V’Yom Tov Pesach Chalikah.
Nearing 90 and 80 respectively, and a world of responsibility on their shoulder, the Gaaved and R’ Yaakov Meir Shechter consider it their duty to help R’ Ephraim Stern cover the exorbitant cost of the distribution that feeds over 12,000 families.
It’s an unusual sight to behold. With a simplicity, they walk from door-to-door, collecting dollar upon dollar. Don’t wait until the Gaaved of Yerushalayim comes knocking on your door. Make your donation today to help feed the poor of Eretz Yisroel.
