A fund has been set up for the family of Rabbi Ariel Tzadik, a victim of the tragedy in Meron who left five orphans, the youngest being six years old.
Quietly and humbly, Rabbi Ariel Tzadik was a pillar of the Chabad community of Bayit Vegan Community in Jerusalem.
His neighbors knew him as a warm, loving chassid who would step up to help anyone in need of aid. The Chabad at the Kotel knew him from his taking part every week of the year in their Teffilin campaign no matter the weather or the time of year.
For his family Rav Tzadik was much more then the breadwinner. He was his family’s pillar, both for his wife and for his 5 children. A dedicated father and incredibly supportive husband.
It is almost impossible to imagine that he has gone, our hearts refuse to believe, and our tears refuse to stop flowing. Last Thursday, in the incredible tragedy which took place in Meron, we lost Rav Ariel. He left this world straight to heaven, with 44 other pure souls whose only wish had been to serve hashem.
His wife and 5 children are broken. They remain here with us, without their father to rely on, and without his loving support.
We cannot take their pain from them or bring back to the 5 children their father. But we can help ease their suffering. Each of us can ease part of their pain by providing for their needs, so that they can know that they are at least financially taken care of.
It is in our hands, and is in our pockets.
Please take part in this special Mitzvah.
