Less than 8 years ago, the Jewish world – and in particular a wife and her 10 children – was rocked when Rabbi Dovid Winiarz, 49, from Staten Island, NY, was killed in a tragic car accident. In one moment, a family whose life encompassed chesed and Torah, was left with a widow and 10 orphans.
Earlier this week, the sweet family – whose chesed and Yiddishkeit remained vibrant in the heart of Staten Island – was left reeling once again as Mrs. Winiarz – mother of the 10 orphans – was niftar after a quick and tragic battle with an illness.
There are now 10 orphans, ages 14 – 34, that are left with NO parents. Four of them are unmarried.
R’ Dovid and Miriam Winiarz A”H were a powerhouse team, working together to bring neshamos closer to Hashem. Along with the kiruv work, they were involved with countless chesed projects within Staten Island and the greater Jewish world. After years and years of giving, despite all the challenges the family has gone through, the family now needs your help. Ten Orphans. Completely alone.
Countless Rabbanim from Staten Island and across the world, including Harav Reuven Feinstein, Shlita, are behind this verified campaign.
The expenses this large family will now have to endure – completely parentless and without any income – are incomprehensible.
While the family will be without parents until the Geula, we are begging Yidden across the world to please help the Winiarz family, the 10 orphans, be able to alleviate the financial strain their situation may lead to.
You can also send a check payable to Bikur Cholim of Staten Island and mail it to Bikur Cholim of Staten Island, C/O Gottlieb, 121 Joseph Avenue, Staten Island, NY, 10314.
Please share this campaign everywhere you can.
