It sounds like situation was that this dear woman ended up saving people’s lives there in the building, baruch Hashem!!!

After first leaving her home to go out motzaei Shabbos, she went back to retrieve something and discovered the fire — and started screaming to the neighbors, sounding the fire alarm, etc.!

So not only did she lose everything, but she ended up becoming an impromptu heroine, too!

We as a community MUST help her!!!!

So sorry to hear this

It might be a bigger mitzvah for insurance agents who work on getting people to buy life insurance to first encourage people to buy fire insurance. Unfortunately it happens too often that people are left with nothing after a fire, having insurance would at least relieve the situation without having to beg for donations.

Did none of the neighbors hear the deafening alarm of her smoke detector?? Or does this building not have smoke detectors?? Either option surprises me.

A FUND to HELP AVIVA!!!
