Rabbi Yaakov Altman is one of the gabbaim who has had the unique honor of spending his days alongside Rav Chaim Kanievsky in his home. Each day, hundreds of Jews file in and out, in search of answers to questions ranging from the practical to the most abstract depths of Torah learning.

Those familiar with the Kanievsky home may know that Rav Chaim documents his answer to complex questions, so that his knowledge can be archived. Rabbi Altman & other editors took on the daunting task of compiling all shaalos & teshuvos from these archives related to the Jewish year.

At last, the masterpiece was completed: Moadei HaGrach Chelek Beis. The sefer is the second chapter in a collection of shaalos & teshuvos from Sar HaTorah Rav Chaim Kanievsky on all of the holy holidays of the Jewish year.

However Rabbi Altman has been met with a challenge: The sefer cannot be published until $25,000 has been raised. In order to print the seer in both Hebrew & English, the editors requires $10K for each language, in addition to other fees.

After all of the calculated brilliance of Rav Chaim Kanievsky's insights, after all of the work meticulously compiling & organizing, the sefer cannot be distributed due to a lack of funds. It is, simply put, tragic.

Rabbi Altman has taken on an unusual & ambitious task: Crowdfunding this holy sefer into reality.

The campaign is ow nearing the halfway mark as Jews around the world are inspired to become partners in publishing with Rabbi Altman & Rav Chaim Kanievsky.

Donors will have their names added to a contributors list to be received & blessed by Rav Kanievsky himself. Those who give $180 or more will receive an exclusive opy of the sefer.

This is truly a historic event. Donations are being accepted here for the next day only
