June 27 - A Plea from Rabbi Biller, our 3rd Grade Rebbe in YKOR

My brother, friend and mentor, Reb Reuven Chaim zt"l, was an incredible person: a devoted husband, a loving father of 8, and a dedicated rebbe and mechanech who was so deeply loved by everyone who knew him. My brother worked hard to support his family while being a true oved Hashem and tremendous Baal Chesed.

One week ago, I received the devastating news that my dear brother passed away in a horrific car accident after a 17 year old new driver caused a head on collision after failing to stay in her lane on a curvy road. He was just 42 years old and left a beautiful and heartbroken family behind.

The family is now in a state of shock and crisis. My sister in law Shiffy, in addition to the pain of being a widow, is left with a tremendous financial burden. My brother was always the sole financial provider for the family. Now she is left alone to care and provide for her kids with the youngest only 4 years old.

With the guidance of Rabanim and Askanim, we set up a fund to help out the family in this time of crisis. Whatever you will contribute will go towards giving my sister in law the financial security to take care of her children while healing from this unthinkable tragedy. Please help give some comfort to a devastated family. Tizku l'mitzvos.

With tremendous appreciation,
Nosson Biller

P.S. Please forward this email to family and friends. If you know of anyone with means who would be sympathetic to this cause, please urge them to help us in this difficult time. Thank you!
