Dear Family and Friends,
For the past several years, I have had a unique opportunity to participate in a very special event. Sunday, 21 Shevat, February 16, 2020, will find the Ocean Place Resort in Long Branch, NJ, resonating with the sounds of intense Torah study. Once again, I will be joining just 291 Lomdim who will learn together to complete the entire Shas in just one day, under one roof, in honor of the ATIME SHAS-A-THON to support ATIME couples on their lonely journey to fertility.
ATIME is a wonderful organization which helps couples dealing with infertility by providing hope, logistical guidance and financial assistance. I’m looking forward to participating in this emotional happening, and the opportunity to intercede on behalf of hundreds of childless couples will be a most worthy goal.
Many of us know someone struggling with infertility, and certainly can appreciate the pain and disappointment that they face on a daily basis, and particularly on Shabbosim and Yomim Tovim.
For so many couples hoping to have a child, every day brings a cycle of pressure, nerves, and challenges they never asked for, with no set “siyum” date for their struggle. Every day brings experiences that make them want to finally give up. Why don’t they?
From the moment a couple detects a challenge until the day they hold their own child, ATIME is at their side providing support in their struggle.
I’m asking my family and friends to please join me in this great undertaking by sponsoring my learning. By sponsoring a Daf, or any part of my learning, your name will be linked to the powerful kedusha generated by our day-long learning session.
I personally thank you for your involvement, and forward the unspoken thanks of the many couples who are surrounded by too-clean walls and too-quiet rooms every minute of their lives, yearning for a child of their own. The hope and dreams your support will enable is more potent than one can fathom.
I am planning to learn: Maseches Chulin, from the Mishnah on Daf 113a until the Mishnah on Daf 123b.
You can sponsor this learning by going to www.shasathon.org/ChaimFertig and placing your donation in the name of my learning.
