At sometime in your life during Yossi Fraenkel’s 10 years in Crown Heights, you probably came across his help.
Yossi made Aliya and moved to Israel. In the 5 years that Yossi moved he volunteers his time yet again 24/7 to save those who can be saved and honoring those who cannot.
Yossi has been to over 90% of the terror attacks, he deals daily with saving lives and Kavod Hames. His ambulance had to be taken off the streets after 12 years of working which leaves Jerusalem and surrounding areas with only 1 ambulance to deal with all the cases. ZAKA is in the final week of an online donor matching campaign to raise $550,000 to buy five new ZAKA ambulances.
At the time of writing to you, there are just five days left.
Just another $100,000 or so to go…
I am writing to you, as a dear friend, and as someone who has always been there day and night for the Crown Heights and Chabad community to partner with me and ZAKA in this project and donate to this worthy cause.
Especially at this – the eleventh hour.
These ambulances are life-lines for our volunteers, serving as mobile store-houses, equipped with emergency first aid, chesed shel emet supplies, oxygen tanks, emergency lighting, generator, rescue equipment and much more.
With stabbing, car-ramming and shooting attacks still taking place almost daily (even if you don’t read about it in the international media), we rely on these ambulances to transport the victims in an honorable manner.
Sadly, my ambulance which is one of the two Jerusalem ZAKA ambulances is hardly road-worthy after more than a decade of use. And in Gush Etzion, Haifa, Ashkelon and Rehovot, we urgently need to buy new ZAKA ambulances.
Please, help us beat the ticking clock and reach our target by the end of the week!

Please put code 3532 in the ZAKA volunteer code
With much gratitude,
From the bottom of my heart, Thank You,
