Yes, all donations are tax deductible. Make all checks out to Emunas Yisroel D’Yerushalayim. Mail all checks to the care of Rabbi Yitzchok Gottdiener, 1431 41st Street, Brooklyn, NY 11218 This is the correct zip code. My previous one was incorrect.

Is there a way to receive a tax deductible receipt?

I also remember him when I was in Yeshivah in Kfar Chabad in 1981-82. He was so goodhearted and had so much chayus. He told me excitedly a lot about the Baba Sali. After I left Israel I thought of him many times and missed him a lot. Now I’ll miss him even more. May he storm the heavens to bring Moshiach NOW!

My Chitas

One time I left my Chitas at the Kotel and Reb Donen made the effort to track me down and personally send me my Chitas back. When I thanked him and told him that he didn’t have to he said something like “you can’t be with out your Chitas.” He was very special and will be missed.

Who is helping the family??

This is Devora Donen, Jeffries mother. He was the most wonderful son Who loved his family his children. He said he was so blessed to have seven beautiful children. I loved him with all my heart and soul, but I have comfort knowing he’s with hashem now.
