Special thanks to our Executive Committee Yitzy Bamberger, Reuven Frankel, Heshy Friedman, Eli Shulman, R' Raphael Vilinsky, and Menachem Weinreb.

December 14 - From Rabbi and Rebbetzin Brodie - Thank you!

Dear Yeshivas Ohr Reuven Family,
 
Many of you are aware that our son Dovi is in the National Institute of Health where he has just undergone a bone marrow transplant that, with Hashem's help, will be the complete cure for a rare disease.

Dovi has been a presence in Yeshiva from the time he was a baby, through elementary school, high school, Beis Medrash and currently learns in the Yeshiva Kollel. His exemplary hasamada and hanhagas hachayim has made him a true role model for the entire Yeshiva.
Words cannot adequately express our profound hakaras hatov for the outpouring of concern, love and tefillos that you have shown over the last few months. 

We would like to specifically thank all the talmidim who invested countless hours into the bone marrow drive. Reb Yitzy Bamberger and his team, both in America and Eretz Yisroel, managed to swab over 13,000 people and many lives will IY"H be saved from the many matches that have been made due to their mesiras nefesh. This has been one of the biggest drives to date.

The Hanhala, Rebbeim, Teachers, Parents, Alumni and Talmidei Hayeshiva have gone above and beyond with countless hours of  extra learning and davening. This continues to be a source of support and strength for our entire family each and every day. It is a z'chus to be part of this incredible Makom Torah which is truly like one big family.
 
A special thanks to the N'shei who have kept the Tehillim going literally around the clock. All your phone calls and texts have meant so much to us. Baruch Hashem everything is going according to plan right now. The next 100 days are crucial for the new immune system to take hold. 

We are asking everyone to continue davening for Chaim Dov ben Risa Shoshana so that he has a refuah shleima b'soch sha'ar cholei yisrael.
