UPDATE

An update on the family I posted about here, as received by e-mail:
1. The community has sent an overwhelming amount of clothing and linen. All needs in that area are covered. To quote Rebbetzin Ilanit reuven, " Mi k'amcha Yisrael, people have been bringing baskets of supplies like the bikkurim that were brought in the Beit Hamikdash!"
2. The JCC of the Rockaways announced that the Met Council on Jewish Poverty will be able to cover the replacement of all furniture lost in the fire through an emergency grant they have for such instances.
3. The family still needs funds to cover the expenses of the family while the father recovers from his burns and injuries. He is in sales and can only go back to work on a limited basis for the next couple of months. We are looking for another $25-$30,000 right now to tide them over until the father fully returns to work. Once we have collected what is needed, we will inform the public.
All I can say is Tizku L'Mitzvot! The response has been unbelievable and the family has been given much needed chizuk through this difficult ordeal.
Again checks can be sent to:
Bayswater Neighbors Fund (tax deductible 501c.3)
c/o Richard Altabe
637 Meehan Ave
Far Rockaway, NY 11691
Thanks again,
Richard Altabe

Please give as generously as you can.

This is a wonderful use of blogging. I am so happy to see the medium used for such a mitzvah.

Tizku L'Mitzvot, Orthomom!

--- quote Rebbetzin Ilanit reuven, “Mi k'amcha Yisrael” ---

Strong financial, social and emotional support for group members is a common characteristic of intense and insular religious groups, although the rhetorical question, “Mi k'amcha Yisrael” implies otherwise.

This is going to sound cold and heartless, but here goes...

THIS is why people should have insurance. God forbid this happens to you, I am sure Klal Yisroel will step in - as they have here - and pull you out of your ordeal (at least financially). If you're cool with that, fine.

Personally, while gratefull that I am part of a nation and a community that would take care of me under such circumstances, there IS NO MITZVAH to become dependent on others when it's avoidable. That is why I own, in addition to life insurance, homeowners' insurance, disability insurance and long term care insurance.

I hope and pray to never need them.

is there an insurance not to be kicked out of business?

Dear anonymous,

The father cannot return to work because the burns he suffered saving his family and others including the landlord prevent him from earning a living.

If you cannot participate in the mitzvah, the least you could do is refrain from publicly judging the actions of others.

Did you ever think that perhaps as immigrants they did not know about renter's insurance?

This is a solicitation for help , not for advice after the fact.

as i was saying, sometimes people actually CAN'T afford insurance and live life on the edge, praying for that disaster not to happen....have a little sensitivity! and count your blessings that you are savvy and have the resources to protect yourself!

Richard -

I think Anon 6:06 makes a point. I don't think they were meant to be rude to the people that have lost everything, merely a reminder to everyone else about what can happen.

Noone can play god, so being properly insured really is priceless.

Would it be recommended to go without health insurance, of course not.

I recently heard that when people are un or under insured and a tragedy takes place, it's often a tremendous burden on the family if the person survives with horrific medical needs for the rest of their lives. Some even say that it would have been 'cheaper' if they had died. I can't say I agree at all with that, but I understand the point.

Noone says that they should have been killed, of course, but accidents occur and can impact everyone.

Hopefully this will be a lesson for others.

It is wonderful to have people like you helping others.

We haven't even counted to emotional toll the family has taken during this tragedy and the comfort of friends, family and community gives them. These are the priceless gifts we can all participate in giving, and the rewards are priceless as well.

OF COURSE THERE IS...IT IS KNOWN AS HUSH MONEY... THE GOVERNMENT REFERS TO IT AS EXTORTION...

HOWEVER,, NONE OF THIS HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE POOR FAMILY AND THEIR NEEDS AT THIS TIME... WE SHOULD ONLY WISH A REFUACH SCHALEMA AND HELP THEM FINANCIALLY IF WE ARE ABLE TO...
