Yossi Shimoni Update

[The 'Terror Attack in Jerusalem' post has been updated a few times.]

Dear Friends,

We have been asked by the family to thank all those who give Tzedaka for Yossi Shimoni's health and recovery, with Hashem's help.

Last week his doctors finally gave the OK to fly him to Europe where he is now undergoing special and intense treatment – but we still must pray for a miracle. Although, at this point additional funds earmarked for his actual treatment are not needed, the family has asked that everyone who cares about Yossi Shimoni's health and family should act as follows:

1) The public is asked to give Tzedaka to the needy Jews of Kiryat Arba and Hevron via the Hebron Fund and the Jewish Community of Hebron and to do so with specific intent as a blessing for Yosef Chaim ben Mazal Tov.

2) The Hebron Fund will be distributing tens of thousands of dollars as FOOD COUPONS to a special list of needy families so they can celebrate the upcoming holidays in a proper, festive manner – in the merit of Yossi Shimoni.

3) Everyone – both donors and recipients – are being asked to take the time on Erev Rosh HaShana, right before the holiday begins, to say a special Tefila for Yossi and for Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu.

Donations can be made on our website www.hebronfund.com. Please indicate in comments: Yossi Shimoni Fund.

Shana Tova to one and all!
