The lives of a well-respected family from the tri-state area were thrown into chaos this year when their father was unexpectedly imprisoned for crimes he hadn't committed. Several Rabbis including Rabbi Daniel Belsky have been working tirelessly on the case for months. According to Rabbi Belsky, the man was previously not in the best of health, and now that he is in harsh jail conditions, his life is now in actual danger.
“His life is threatened for a crime he did not commit. Important Rabbis ruled this as life or death,” announced Rabbi Belsky in a circulating video message.
The courts have given the family the bail option of $150,000 and the campaign page has accumulated over $100,000 so far, with less than $50,000 needed to be raised in order to free him. If the sum of money is completely raised, a beloved father, husband, and community member will be able to walk free. He will be able to receive the immediate medical attention that he desperately needs. If not…his future, and the future of his family’s, looks grim.
Those who are interested in partaking in the rare mitzvah of redeeming Jewish captives can join the family’s desperate mission to reach their goal. According to Rabbi Belsky, because his health is failing in prison, every second matters.
