Please note this GoFundMe Campaign is now 1 of 2 Official Campaigns Sanctioned by Community Rabbis including Rabbi David Ozeri. The Chesed Fund Campaign was created as a parallel to this campaign to be sure that between the 2 campaigns our efforts were reaching the local, regional and global communities of fellow people.

All funds collected from this campaign will be deposited directly to Yad Yosef Fund and will be distributed  accordingly by Rabbi David Ozeri personally.

GoFundMe DOES NOT charge any additional fees per donation.

To verify the legitimacy of this campaign you can call Yad Yosef at 718-677-3707 Ext 105. Please advise that you are calling about the campaign name in the URL (web address) above.

On December 18, 2017, the 6th Night of Chanukah at about 2:30 AM a fast moving fire struck the Azan Family home. The Azan family lost their Mother Aliza 39, and 3 beautiful children 11-year-old Moshe; 7-year-old Yitzchak and 3-year-old Henriette. Their father, Yossi Azan, his 16-year-old Daughter Shilat and 15-year-old son Daniel remain in critical condition on life support in Staten Island University Hospital Burn Unit. One remaining son and his cousin escaped without injuries.

As many fellow community members are asking how can we help, we ask that first and foremost you pray for the family. In addition, the family is going to need assistance in obtaining a new home, medical care and many other anticipated expenses. Without any source of income for the foreseeable future, the goal of this campaign is to help ease their burden as much as possible.

****Please note that when making a donation you will see a “tip” drop down bar. This is OPTIONAL. The tip goes to GoFundMe. If you wish NOT to leave a tip click “other” and type “$0.00”.****

****All monies raised by the Jacob Massry GoFundMe campaign have been transfered to Yad Yosef. ****

Please pray for the family's speedy recovery.

For full disclosure: Rabbi David Ozeri is the Rabbi of Yad Yosef Congregation located at 1036 Ocean Parkway, Brooklyn, NY 11230. He is the family's Rabbi and close confidant. He is also involved in arranging medical care for the surviving family members. Funds from this campaign will be deposited to Yad Yosefs' account. Rabbi Ozeri will distribute the money to the family for housing, clothing and medical expenses.
