Dear Family and Friends,

 

My wife and I have been blessed with a wonderful family.   

I often wondered, how do I thank the Almighty for this blessing?  My answer is to help the very people, who need that blessing. 

I  often encounter and talk to many couples who struggle with the emotional and physical pain of infertility.  I think about our blessings of our own children and grandchildren and say,  "Now I must try to help others."  

I am still in the year of mourning for my revered father, Rav Binyamin Kamenetzky zt"l.  I remember so vividly, not only his empathy for childless couples, but his involvement in trying to get them the proper financial and medical aid to help bring true joy into their lives.

 

During his shiva, a young man came over to me and told me that he had approached my father for a blessing for children.  He replied, "One of my children was childless for the first years of his marriage.  My father, Rav Yaakov, zt"l, advised him to buy a home as a segulah to fill it with children.  He did and the blessing was fulfilled. 

My father pulled out his checkbook and started writing a check.  "When you are ready to go to contract, I will be giving you $1000.00"

 

Three years ago I became involved in an amazing organization, A Time."  A Time"s empathetic staff members, male and female doctors and counselors and therapists are devoted fully to address every aspect and every need of a Jewish couples yearning for a family of their own. 

This year, for the third year in a row,  I joined the “A Time - Shas A Thon” and together with my chavrusa of many years, Ezra Birnbaum, I am one of the hundreds of learners who will be finishing the entire Talmud (all 2,711 double-sided pages) in 1 day, all united under one roof.

I ask you to join me, my learning and the hundreds of couples supported “A Time” by sponsoring my learning to benefit childless couples.

Your name will be linked to this powerful Siyum of Hope generated by our day-long learning, with merit that will carry for generations. The hope and dreams your support will provide will be more potent than one can fathom.

Sincerely,

 

Rabbi Mordechai Kamenetzky
