UPDATE 5/20/20

SIX PEOPLE TO COMMIT TO $50 PER MONTH

An older man needs a little financial assistance monthly with his rent.

Many years ago, he fled the Iranian religious dictatorship. With his baby son on his back, he crossed the mountain range between Iran into Pakistan, an incredibly dangerous journey. This perilous trip eventually took him to Vienna, and then on to New York. There, in New York, he worked 3 jobs daily to support himself and his young son for many years.

Eventually, he and his son made their way to Los Angeles.

Today he lives in a small studio apartment across the alleyway from Bais Bezalel in the Pico/Robertson area. He receives a small amount of Social Security but has no other retirement income because throughout the years he worked only menial labor jobs.

He is not well and can no longer work. He is $400 short every month on his rent.

We have monthly commitments of $100 towards this $400, so we are just short $300 a month to help Eliyahu meet his rent.

If 6 people can commit to $50 each month, this man can pay his rent in full and have peace of mind after a long and difficult life struggling year after year.
