The campaign is over, but we still need your support. If you want to make a contribution please click here.

If you would have known R’ Dovid Frid before ALS, a cruel and debilitating disease, began wreaking havoc on his body, you would have seen a man who loved life. A man who was dedicated to learning Torah and raising his eight children.

ALS has left R’ Dovid completely paralyzed and on a breathing machine. He needs 24-hour surveillance to survive. This cost, in addition to doctors, medicines, supplemental equipment and a myriad of other expenses not covered by government insurance are well beyond his family’s ability.

Today, it’s up to you to take the challenge.


All donations will be processed through the international charity fund KUPAT HAIR. Tax-deductible receipts will be issued in the U.S. and Israel.

Every once in a while, we're given the opportunity to truly and deeply change a life. Sometimes, a chance comes along to accomplish something that is pure good.

This is your chance to have a profound effect on the life of a loving and caring person. Well, 10 of them, to be exact. Right now, at this very moment, R’ Dovid and his family need you. We hope and pray that you hear their call.

ALS is painful. Although the disease has progressed to the point where R’ Dovid is now fully paralyzed and dependent on life support, he still keeps up his daily learning schedule using advanced computer technology. He is a true hero!

This is your chance to save a life and at the same time, make the world a better place by shining the light of kindness…. and by challenging your friends to do the same.

In addition, due to generous matching donors, every dollar you give will be DOUBLED! That's right! Your gift can work TWICE as hard. You will have TWICE the impact in helping his family through this terrible medical crisis. Because of you, they will be free of the month-to-month struggle to pay for never ending expenses and be able to live again.

They can’t do it alone. They need your help.

Thank you for taking the time to read their story. May you all be blessed with good health, happiness and success in all your endeavors.

Best regards,

On behalf of R’ Dovid Frid and family
