Michoel Benjamin, a young husband and father, was stricken by a horrific accident on Motzei Rosh Hashana.
Michoel, a father of twins, is known as caring, loving, warm, and friendly, and as someone who lights up the room and is the first to lend a hand.
On this Rosh Hashanah, he served as Chazzan and was among millions of Jews trembling at the words “Who by fire and who by water”. Then, that very night, his wife, Rivka, after putting the twins to sleep, awoke to a terrible accident, in which her husband’s body was engulfed in flames, and within minutes he had burns on 55 percent of his body.
Thank G-d, Michoel is receiving excellent care at Loyola’s burn intensive care unit. While we hope and pray for an immediate recovery, the road is likely to be painful and difficult — and not short.
Now Michoel urgently needs our help.
The needs are many and will continue long after the extended hospital stay comes to an end. Services such as home nursing, physical therapy, lost income, childcare, food, and rent are chief among them.
Please Pray and do an additional mitzvah for Kalman Michoel ben Rochel Yeta Rivka.
Let’s be there for Michoel, Rivka, and their twins. Together, we will help a Jewish family in crisis.
Together let us help Michoel and his family!
Michoel is a giver. Give like Michoel.
Mr. and Mrs. Aryeh Leib Benjamin, together with the Rabbonim, will ensure these funds are used for the intended purpose.
