Thank God for this life-saving device you had on-hand. It is important to have regular maintenance performed on generators to make sure they are in working order. Also have an extra one or two on hand for emergency situations.

We are all rooting for Rabbi Yitzi!

Dear hurwitz family. I almost say your fathers kapital every night after i say shema. So if I am saying shema from a siddur that night (majority of the time) i say it. I met musie and chava in ranch camp and I believe i have been saying it since. Whenever i go to the ohel I have your father in mind.

Inspiring and beautiful.

Beautiful story!
May Dina’s incredible Life support and all of our Mitzvos for Yitzi merit him a complete Refuah Shelaima U’krova, and only happiness, health, success and good things for the entire Hurwitz family. Kol Hakavod to all of those who are supporting and donating to the Hurwitz family. It is such a big mitzvah.

Please give to this worthy cause. My wife, Brocha, trains for months with a small group of people who will run with her in a few weeks, Every dollar goes directly to Yitzie’s medical expenses. Truthfully $20K is a small portion of his yearly expense. Lets raise more than $20k and show the world that even the worst diseases can not hold a person down, Yitzie and Dina inspire countless people. And Brocha is an inspiration to me and others here in Miami, Go Brocha! Go Team Yitzie!
