Subject: Victim of Terror Attack - Howie Rothman of Toronto
I am sending this out to my entire list, in all parts of the world. If you are not in Canada and need information about donations in other countries please be in touch.
Within Canada, if you are not familiar with Beth Oloth, I am. I know the people personally. Beth Oloth is a dependable and very trustworthy charity fund. You can feel comfortable sending your donations through them.
We are writing you with respect to the terrible tragedy of last week in Israel, where a number of people were killed or seriously injured while praying in Shul.
One of the individuals seriously injured, is a former Torontonian, Howie Rothman, who graduated from the Community Hebrew Academy of Toronto (CHAT). As you probably have read, his injuries are very serious and it is unlikely he will be able to work in the foreseeable future and in addition he will be incurring major medical expenditures.
As he was a member of the Toronto community and a graduate of one of our schools, we would very much like to help him financially (including his wife and 10 children). We are therefore asking people to contribute as much as they can, to a fund that has been established to assist the victims of the terror attack.
In order to contribute, you can mail a cheque, payable to BETH OLOTH, to: Beth Oloth, 525 Glengrove Ave., Toronto, Ont. M6B 2H1 (Alternatively, you can drop it off at Ira's house, 17 Erica Ave.)
You will receive a tax deductible receipt for your donation.
Your contribution will be matched dollar for dollar by anonymous donors in the U.S., provided that you make a commitment by this Friday. (For example, if a person donates $100, they may get back approximately $40 as a donation tax credit, so the cost to the donor is $60 while the victims receive $200).
In order to commit to a donation, you would need to write a short e-mail to Mordechai Rothschild, MRothschild@canaccordgenuity.com and say in the e-mail how much you are donating. The cheque should be received by Beth Oloth by the end of next week.
Please indicate on the cheque memo "Har Nof - Howie Rothman". (If you want the cheque to go to all of the families affected by the terror attack, please put "Har Nof Families").
Thank you very much for your help in this.
