Chanukah, the Celebration of Lights
has passed. It was our first without our dear son Leiby. He lived
for only eight short years, one for every Chanukah candle. Our
pain was so strong, our grief so deep. Leiby’s innocent
face haunted us day and night. We thought we would not be able
to continue living.
That’s when we experienced
our own personal Chanukah miracle. We drew awesome strength from
this wondrous holiday of lights to realize that one indeed has
the ability to overcome challenging and seemingly impossible odds.
A firm commitment to do a good deed for G-d and mankind will be
imbued with miraculous strength of courage and spirit. We
know it to be true because it happened to us!
In our desperation to keep Leiby’s
memory alive and perpetuate his eight years of lights burning
bright, we established the Leiby Kletzky Memorial Fund
for Children. We committed all our emotions and energies
to the sacred task of saving children in crisis. By subsidizing
life-saving psychological treatment and counseling, we have saved
families from hopelessness and despair. This brings
our family immeasurable comfort and consolation.
We implore you! There are so many children
at risk whose parents beg us to
rescue them from disaster and ruin! Every child lost is a whole
We must intervene before it is too late!
We cannot thank you enough for your
support! Your tax deductible gift is a gift to Leiby’s memory
and a comfort to his soul. Please be as generous as you possibly
can, and invite your friends to join you.
We pray deeply to G-d on your
behalf that He shower you with His bountiful blessings of prosperity,
good health and good tidings always, and that you should never
know of calamity and sadness. Never!
