Ever since Rosa Hindy Weiss‘s heartfelt appeal several days ago, many potential donors reported difficulty donating to the fund.
Established by the NCFJE – National Committee for the Furtherance of Jewish Education, the Pidyon Shevuyim Fund is to help with legal fees of R’ Sholom Mordechai Rubashkin of Postville, Iowa.
Since his daughter’s video message posted on COLlive.com and other Jewish sites, nearly $50,000 has come into the Pidyon Shevuyim account.
This does not include donations made via mail.
But more many reported receiving error messages from the Google Checkout online donation form.
“Apparently, this is because of the unusually high volume of donations that have come in over these past few days,” COLlive was told.
“The Rubashkin family and the vaad of Pidyon Shevuyim have expressed their deep appreciation to the overwhelming show of support and have asked that anyone having difficulty donating to please be patient and try again.”
