“Pidyon Shvuyim” פדיון שבויים Campaign – Raising $59,000 to Free a Father in Need

Dear Reader:

We do not generally post this type of information because we do not want it to be deemed an endorsement. However, this was sent to us by a reader who, among other things, has never seen this type of fundraising campaign and is also a frequent contributor.

We have been unable to independently verify if the subject of this fundraiser actually did anything wrong and if so, what it was. We have no information on the aggrieved party or parties. We are publishing this at the behest of an LM loyalist in the hopes that perhaps by so doing, we are showing the best of this community as opposed to so many dark accounts found on these pages. If this man deserves the help, we hope that by posting, he gets it.

Should anyone find something nefarious in this fundraiser, or anything about the underlying circumstances, please let us know. To the extent that it is meant to remain private, we will respect that.

In the meantime, please do your own research and if you feel it justified, please donate to the campaign.

Help Free a Father From Prison

A Crown Heights resident and father of a large family who fell into a bad business deal can narrowly escape jail time if he pays $59,000.

Dear fellow Jews,

A long time member of Anash and resident of Crown heights, a father to a large family ka”h, recently fell into a bad business deal, which resulted in a criminal case against him. Although a crime was done, this person actually did not commit the crime being brought against him.

He is currently facing up to two years jail time. With Hashem’s Nisim, the judge and prosecutors have agreed to give this individual a way out of this whole saga, by paying up the parties who were affected.

A sum of $59,000 needs to be collected ASAP in order to pay the remainder towards the court agreed settlement plus a very minimal amount to the lawyer on the case, who gave a massive discount.

The Yungerman is penniless and cannot afford any of this money alone.

Please participate in this great mitzvah of פדיון שבויים which will directly acquit this person from any wrongdoing, avoiding prison time and allowing him and his family to move forward with their lives.

All donations are tax deductible through NCFJE’s Pidyon Shvuyim fund.

  1. “Dear fellow Jews”… because we’re always “fellow Jews” when they want money.

    Another money black hole for Chabad-Lubavitch? They’re always happy to take with their hand out. But not so willing to help when it’s one of their stupid customers or outreach chumps. What a joke. Let some wealthy messianist with fat yichus who won’t even miss 59K pay their bills.
    They have plenty of defense funds for their criminals. So why not for this poor idiot?

    No name, no case reference, no means to verify anything! But we should fork it over, to the total of 59K, to this list of Chabad rabbis?
    #1 career choice for Chabad… living off of others. Lubavitch life IS a fundraiser.

    It’s a mitzvah? That’s bullshit. It’s a mitzvah to not rip people off, and this guy was apparently party to doing just that. His criminally punishable “non-crime” should not have to be the Jewish world’s expense.

    Let this guy spend some time in a jail cell and maybe he’ll learn some better judgement.
    Besides, rent and kosher meals in the slammer come at Chabad’s favorite price… FREE.

    Do a mitzvah… keep Chabad off of your donation list. Donate to real Jewish charities that use the money for more than keeping criminal Lubavitchers out of jail and buying bottles of vodka.
