About Kupas Zichron Moshe

They are Rav Gamliel’s personal friends and neighbors – the talmidei chachamim of Zichron Moshe. They live in the pure and holy city of Yerushalayim – the city that draws visitors from around the world – in a shuchnah, a neighborhood marked by its absolute simplictiy and its exalted greatness.

These tzadikim are living in extreme poverty. Stark poverty. Poverty that cannot be described or fathomed with mere words. Frightening poverty. Starvation level poverty.

As the calendar moves through the year and Pesach arrives, beneath the joy spreading through the city, there is raw fear. Who will provide for those who have nothing? For those pure, holy people who have nowhere to turn.

There are no safety nets to catch those who simply don’t have, no government subsidies to provide at least the basics.

But there is Kupas Zichron Moshe.

A kupah created and run by talmidei chachamim, a kupah backed by gedolim and talmidei chachamim and a kupah that provides for talmidei chachamim with dignity and respect. Twelve years ago, Kupas Zichron Moshe was established by Rav Aharon Nimerovsky to assist needy families in the Zichron Moshe neighborhood of Yerushalayim with their Shabbos and Yom Tov expenses. The kupah operates under the auspices of Rav Gamliel Rabinovich, Rav Moshe Elyashiv and Rav Yitzchak Soloveitchik.

This year, you can adopt a family of Talmidei Chachamim from Zichron Moshe and provide for their Yom Tov needs. Every family has its own struggles – an alamana with many children, a sick child, a family member struggling with mental illness, a father who lost his job.

The Jews of Zichron Moshe have always been an inspiration to countless people, including the hundreds of American bachurim who flock each year to learn in Eretz Yisrael. Now is our chance to show this precious community that we care about them and that we stand by their side.

Many of these families would simply not be able to make Yom Tov without our support.

As we celebrate Yom Tov with our own families, let us give our brothers in Eretz Yisrael a reason to celebrate as well.

    These gaboim that are in charge of the kupah take nothing for themselves. It's fully Lshem Shamayim

    These are my friends and neighbors! Those who help them, are personally helping me" Harav Gamliel Rabinowitz

    To Our Brothers in Klal Yisroel,

    You are fortunate that you have merited to be the emissaries of Hashem, to take the zchus in the mitzvah of tzedakah, for poor Talmidei Chachamim that toil in Torah with bare necessities, on an unimaginable level of devotion to Torah and Mitzvos while it is hard for them even to bring bread for their children.

    These are talmidei chachamim that the world stands on, that are living in extreme poverty.

    Baruch Hashem, in our neighborhood we have a group of local trustworthy individuals, that took upon themselves to worry for these families and to assist them in every way possible. We know these gabaim and that all their activities are all lshem shamayim .

    It is a tremendous zchus to help them and to take part in this great mitzvah and fortunate is the one that will stand with these chashuve askanim.

    In this zchus may you all be blessed with all good, and Hashem should grant you all your heart’s desires, and you will merit nachas from your families, with health and great hashpaah.
