Misaskim launches project to write a Sefer Torah leilui nishmasom of 7 young kedoshim a"h

It is with a broken heart and spirit that Misaskim, together with all of Klal Yisroel, mourns the incomprehensible and devastating loss of the seven young kedoshim, A”H that tragically perished in a fire that consumed their home on Shabbos Parshas Vayikrah.  Misaskim pooled all its resources, and much more in order to offer support to the stricken Sassoon family in the aftermath of this harrowing nightmare.

Misaskim volunteers were dispatched to the hospital to ensure the utmost kavod hames for these pure souls. The organization was instrumental in facilitating positive interactions between law enforcement officials, the investigation team, and the Medical Examiner's Office. Misaskim arranged the transport of the niftarim to Israel and was called upon to join with NYC's finest in arranging for the sorrowful levayah that was attended by thousands of people.

Now we are all left with a gaping sense of emptiness. True to the organization's mission, Misaskim would like to offer an everlasting comfort to the family and to these pure neshamahas in shomayim by embarking on a project to write a Sefer Torah leilui nishmasom a"h. Even more so, this Sefer Torah will certainly be a z’chus Refuah Shleima for Gila bas Tziporah and Tziporah bas Gila.

Misaskim is inviting acheinu kol Bais Yisroel to join us in this special mitzvah. Individuals who wish to fulfill an everlasting chesed can choose to participate by donating a parshah, an amud, or even a passuk. Donations can be made online by visiting www.misaskim.org/sefertorah.php or by contacting Misaskim at: 718-854-4548
