Its been about 135 days since the petira of Eli A’H and not a minute goes by that we dont think of Eli and the ever lasting memories he left us with.
Since the petira we have been thinking of many different ideas of what we can do Lzecher Nishmas Elimelech Ben Menachem Mendel Malkiel and many ideas have come to my mind. For different reasons alot of our ideas will IYH happen but we are going to be focused on one isea for now.
Many of you may know I am involved in Misaskim LA and its a cause very close to my heart and it is something that Eli when he was able helped me and when he couldnt help and was in the hospital always gave me a pass to leave him for a short while to do a delivery or pick up.
I have therefore taken upon myself to significantly expand Misaskim to cover the Valley area and many other areas that we have not been able to cover due to a lack of a truck or enough shiva material to do so. Once we have the money EVERYTHING on the truck and thats being purchased will be as a zchus for Eli. The expected life of the truck and all the material is 15+ years.
While the cost may sound high it includes a new truck, chairs, a few aron kodesh, a few sets of the different nusach, shtenders and many other items we provide. A few close friends and our family have pledged roughly $80,000 but we are still short about $45,000. Anyone that would like to be part of this we would really appreciate.
