An announcement by friends of the family:
This past week, the Chabad world suffered a terrible tragedy with the loss of a young husband and father R’ Eli Weissberg OBM. R’ Eli was 28 years old when he tragically passed away this past Tuesday. He leaves behind a grieving wife, Hadassah (nee Barnes), and two young children, the older one who will be celebrating his Upsherin in just two months.
Eli was known by all as the rock of his family, a loving father, dedicated husband and giving friend. His sudden and unexpected loss has sent shock waves throughout the Chabad community in Israel and around the world.
In the wake of the tragic loss, Eli’s friends have committed themselves to care for the family he left behind and have set up a fund to help care for Eli’s children’s long-term expenses. They are launching a Charidy campaign this Sunday to raise 1,000,000 shekel ($275,000+) to create a lasting trust fund that will support the Weissberg family.
Please donate to help relieve some of the family’s intense pain and suffering during this very difficult time as they are forced to move forward without their beloved husband and father:
Top Chabad Rabanim in Israel have encouraged the greater community to participate in this campaign and help support the family. The campaign has been endorsed by Rav of Kfar Chabad, Rabbi Meir Ashkenazi, the Chabad Rabbi of Rechovot, Rabbi Mendel Gluckowsky.
