Senior Citizen Attacked,Robbed of All Life Savings

Dear friends,

US citizens donate here:

My name is Yedidya Moryoussef and I'm from Montreal, Canada, I decided to open this GoFundMe to help the father of my dear Teacher Rav Yaron Reuven.

David Reuven (70) was viciously assaulted by an organized gang of criminals while in Los Angeles on Dec 13 2018 on his way out from a restaurant after having showcased his own and other people's jewelry merchandise at a trade show earlier that day and week. The kind hearted and generous religious Jewish father, husband and grandfather has supported countless great causes throughout his lifetime. One of them is his son- Rabbi Yaron Reuven’s non-profit organization: Be'ezrat Hashem which strives on helping Jewish people lead a more meaningful and moral life. David Reuven is unfortunately now left in a horrific circumstance, after having been viciously robbed of all his lifetime savings in jewelry ($200,000 USD) and over $100,000 USD worth of consignment jewelry of other people which he brought to the trade show to sell on their behalf. He is was hospitalized after being badly bruised & fractured arm after the gang of criminals hit him with their car after taking all his jewelry. As we all know, medical costs are very prohibitive as person gets older, and to start over financially at 70 years old is not an easy test.Let’s therefore please try to return all the good deeds that this pious man has done in his lifetime. NOW is the time to do the right thing together and do this BIG Mitsvah and help him physically & financially get back on his feet again so he can continue to help others. BH

PS if anyone has any information about this heinous criminal act, please contact the Los Angeles Police Department.

The funds will be given to David Reuven to help him get back on his feet.

Thank you.
