At the start of each new year, Rabbi Avraham Lider, founder of Ahavas Chesed, would make his well-known “Yom Kippur Appeal”, asking everyone to partner with him in this life-saving work. Now its our turn to pick up the tab.
In a few days, we will all be standing in shul, imploring our Father in Heaven for a good year as we recite Avinu Malkeinu.
We will be asking Hashem to provide complete healing for those who are facing a medical crisis.
At Ahavas Chesed, we know the emotional turmoil that accompanies such a difficult experience.
Accompanying the physical pain of every medical emergency are the lonely, terrifying, overwhelming arrangements and finances that burden patients and their families. Coping with a medical crisis is painful enough, and navigating these obstacles makes this impossible situation absolutely daunting.
That is, until families are graced with the kindness of Ahavas Chesed, whose wide variety of services help to shoulder burdens for families during their most vulnerable moments of need.
Emergency procedures creating a strain on the family’s bank account? Ahavas Chesed offers financial assistance.
Patient has no family or friends in town? Ahavas Chesed volunteers will visit the hospital to hold a hand that needs holding or listen to a heart that needs to be heard.
Need a ride to a doctor’s appointment or a shuttle from one hospital to another? Ahavas Chesed will always have a driver ready to pick up the need. Their volunteers act as chauffer, friend, and assistant to patients in need of a drive.
Their loving-kindness continues to flow with their comforting hot-meal deliveries and the ongoing at-home medical care that they arrange.
With brotherly compassion, Ahavas Chesed ensures that when a fellow Jew goes through a medical emergency, he does not go through it alone.
At the start of each new year, Rabbi Avraham Lider, founder of Ahavas Chesed, would make his well-known “Yom Kippur Appeal”, asking everyone to partner with him in this life-saving work.
Unfortunately, Rabbi Lider is no longer here to make his appeal. Now, it’s up to us.
Yom Kippur is just days away.
We will soon be asking Hashem to fulfill our needs and the needs of our families and all our fellow Jewish brethren.
Will you be His messenger for those who need healing?
Help us ensure that no one goes through medical crisis alone.
