Did you know that you are a millionaire?

Not just a millionaire. A multi-millionaire: you donated $40,000,000 to tzedakah over the past year!

Read that sum again: $40,000,000 are accrued to your merit, as you are a donor to Vaad Harabbanim!

Over the past year, Vaad Harabbanim distributed $40,000,000. To the needy, to widows, to orphans, to families of the physically and mentally ill, to impoverished talmidei chachamim. Jews struggling to survive another day, overwhelmed with suffernig. They got some space to breathe, thanks to you.

And all this enormous tzedakah is attributed to you!

Every single donor who was a partner, who added another twenty and another hundred, which together make forty million, is considered as if he donated the whole sum himself, and 40 million malachim will protect him. So ruled Moreinu Harav Hagaon Chaim Kanievsky zt”l!

You are fabulously rich. You accumulated a crazy amount of property.

Did you ever dream that you would become a tzedakah tycoon like this? A millionaire forever and ever, overflowing with wealth that will remain yours, for eternity.

A Record-Breaker

.

The offices of Vaad Harabbanim were cleaned and scrubbed. The reports were printed up in several copies, refreshments were purchased for the big event, and the Gabbaim excitedly held their breaths.

The Gedolei Hador are coming for a meeting to sum up the year’s activities in Vaad Harabbanim!

One after another, they entered the modest office at 1 Yoel st. in Yerushalayim. An impressive entourage: Hagaon Hagadol Harav Baruch Mordechai Ezrachi Shlita Rosh Yeshivas Ateres Yisrael and member of Mo’etzes Gedolei Hatorah, Moreinu Hagaon Harav Dovid Kohen Shlita Rosh Yeshivas Chevron and member of Mo’etzes Gedolei Hatorah, Moreinu the Rebbe of Rachmestrivka Shlita, Moreinu Hagaon Harav Yaakov Hillel Shlita Rosh Yeshivas Ahavas Shalom, and Moreinu Hagaon Harav Reuven Elbaz Shlita Rosh Yeshivas Ohr Hachayim and member of Mo’etzes Gedolei Hatorah.

This is not the first time that Vaad Harabbanim’s offices merited a distinguished visit like this. The Gedolei Hador come in often to examine from close up the tzedakah project that is so dear to their hearts.

They participate in the quarterly meetings of Vaad Harabbanim and in the tzedakah campaigns. They hear the distress of the needy and know better than anyone how much your donation saves lives. They see the tears of joy in the eyes of an orphan chasan who was able to set a date for his wedding, thanks to your donation. They hear the sigh of relief when a stipend comes in before Yom Tov to a struggling home.

And all of them, despite being long-time participants in the Vaad’s activities, were amazed to hear the epic sums that were distributed this year: $40,000,000!

The Gedolei Hador are poring over the reports. Leafing through the pages that make up a powerful world of tzedakah. 40,000,000 that was granted to families in distress, and gave us the merit of supporting all the types of tzedakah in the world.

“There is a tzedakah fund here, the likes of which never ever existed!” Harav Baruch Mordechai Ezrachi exclaimed passionately, in face of the astounding statistics, “there are a lot of impressive initiatives that have been started among the Jewish people, but a chiddush like that of Vaad Harabbanim has never existed!”

Every dollar is documented and recorded. Every donation is utilized to the maximum, for the sake of the needy families. Lines upon lines of astronomic sums, names of families, sums of stipends. Dry statistics behind which are blood and tears. People with various sicknesses, parents who want to give everything to their children, but have nothing. Longing orphans, families gripped by fear of death.

Tens of thousands of Jews whom you reached with the donation you gave, upon whom you showed consolation, and whom you enwrapped with the loving support of the Jewish people!

Blessings on Your Head

.

“The tremendous zechus of this great tzedakah distribution, of millions of dollars to tens of thousands of paupers, will stand for all the donors, to be blessed with all the kinds of berachos and yeshu’os!” So blessed Moreinu the Rebbe of Rachmestrivka Shlita with a burst of kedushah.

The Rosh Yeshivah Hagaon Harav Dovid Kohen Shlita showers a birkas kohen gadol: “All those who are truly partners in the great project of Vaad Harabbanim, to help orphans and widows and people in difficult straits, will surely merit very much siyata d’Shamaya in all areas, in shidduchim, in good health and in having children.”

This is the tzedakah that the Gedolei Hador sign on! They see where every dollar goes, they testify that your tzedakah works wonders. Someone who gives to Vaad Harabbanim can be sure that every dollar he gives will arrive 100% to its intended destination.

“What should a person do to be saved from chavlei Mashiach? He should donate to Vaad Harabbanim.” So said Moreinu Harav Hagaon Reuven Elbaz Shlita. “Vaad Harabbanim does wondrous things. The Rabbanim go over the forms themselves and involve themselves in the cases. Every donation gives life to another family, and this is a zechut that brings the Mashiach!”

Also the Mekubal Harav Hagaon Yaakov Hillel Shlita blesses you warmly: “All those who merit donating to the important tzedakah of Vaad Harabbanim, Hashem will bless them and grant them success and fulfill the wishes of their hearts for the good, according to what each person needs, with all the yeshu’ot and berachot. Children shining with Torah and mitzvot, proper zivugim, barren women giving birth, abundant parnassah and nachat d’kedushah in the merit of tzedakah, for all their days and years.”

Look what blessings are showered on your head! The Tzaddikim bless you with all the good in the world! Ten of thousands of poor people whose lives you lit up, who bought diapers and baby formula with your money, and clothes and food and medicine. They themselves are wondrous Melitzei Yosher for you, before the Kisei Hakavod!

40,000,000 Malachim

.

The last year was unbearable. Soaked with tears and fearsome sights. The harsh prophecies of Ikvesa d’Meshicha came alive in front of our eyes. And Vaad Harabbanim really felt it.
So many tragedies occurred this year! A father who traveled abroad and came back wrapped in a tallis, a beloved child who perished in flames. Every tragedy leaves behind a trail of injuries and wreckage, and necessitates the immediate action of Vaad Harabbanim.

On the outside, it is another hair-raising article in the daily paper.

In Vaad Harabbanim, it is a critical mission to be carried out!

In your merit, orphan children are as well dressed as their friends. In your merit they open their schoolbags, and it has schoolbooks and writing utensils in it. In your merit there is a mother waiting for them at home. She is a widow, but she is smiling and has strength, and the electrical appliances work, and the furniture is not broken, and they even have enough to go on a trip during vacation.

In your merit, needy brides and bridegrooms go the chuppah respectably. In your merit, they wear suits befitting a chasan and dresses befitting a kallah, and there is a ring to make kiddushin with, and a seudah fitting to invite guests to. In your merit, they have a fridge and a table and a pillow to rest their heads on. They have a home!

Your 40,000,000 gives life to suffering patients! Critical treatments, medication to alleviate awful side-effects, medicines not covered by the health plan.

Full-Steam Ahead

.

A new year is at the doorstep. The period of chagim is packed with expenses and needs. Even families that somehow manage to get through the regular times are at a loss: fleishik Yom Tov meals, lulavim, clothes for the children, material to build the sukkah. When the chagim are coming, the amount of requests for assistance that come into Vaad Harabbanim is doubled.
Approximately 100 additional requests arrive every day in the offices of Vaad Harabbanim!

As usual, a gathering of Rabbanim is held every period in the offices of the Vaad, and thousands of forms have piled up. The forms are full of technical details: Name. Identity number. Number of children. Address. Dry data that tries to communicate the distress of live people with a bleeding heart. Every form is a neshamah. They are our brothers and sisters!

We can’t give back to the orphans their father or mother who passed away. We can’t wave a magic wand over the sick and heal them instantaneously.

But we can adopt these families to our own family. And at the happiest times, on the most family-oriented chagim, we can make sure that none of them will be out in the cold.

Over the past year we distributed $40,000,000 to tzedakah. We merited supporting tens of thousands of needy families. We became rich with dozens of millions of tzedakos.

In 5783 we will continue ahead at full steam!

We will give more and more to tzedakah. We will create more and more malachim. And may we be zocheh this year to the Geulah Sheleimah!
