About this Fund

יוסף יצחק בן ברכה לרפו''ש וקרובה 

The Hurwitz Family Fund was created to assist Rabbi Yitzchok Hurwitz and his family as they struggle with the devastating effects of ALS (Lou Gherig's Disease) one of the cruelest diseases known to mankind.

Every day brings new challenges to Yitzy as he, his wife and seven children battle the effects of this dreadful disease.  We can only imagine how much pain and suffering the Hurwitz family is going through.

Tragically, Yitzy can no longer speak nor does he have any ambulatory abilities.  Yet, his enthusiasm for life is so very evident simply by being in his presence.  Without even saying a word he is able to inspire all who come his way via his faith and perseverance in the face of one of the most horrible diseases known to mankind.

We have committed ourselves to paying for all of Rabbi Hurwitz’s medical costs such as daily care and exploratory treatments.  We are also covering the Hurwitz family’s financial burdens during this trying time in order to allow them to spend this critical time together without other worries. 

Without your vital assistance, all of this would simply be impossible!  We are very grateful that you partnered with us for this special mitzvah.  On behalf of Yitzy and his family, thank you so very much.
