This charity is based in Bnai Brak, and apparently enjoys the leadership and control of a number of eminent Rabbanim - Harav Wosner, Harav Chaim Kanievsky, Harav M. Y. Lifkovitz, Harav A.L. Steinman,Harav Nissim Karelitz, and others. The leaflet is filled with gushing stories of the support of the Gedolim for this tsedaka, although it is a bit thin on what the money is spent on. Contributors are promised that "On Zos Chanukah 5765, the gedolei hador shlit"a, will pray for all the names that have come in by Wednesday, Zos Chanukah."
What is highlighted as an example of the efficacy of their prayers? A sick person who received a refuah shelemah b'nefesh u'baguf? A widow? An orphan? Nope. See the box on p.10 (unnumbered):
"AT the conclusion of the meeting, the gedolim were presented with the name of a contributor from the United States who had, only two days earlier, donated $18,000 to Kupat Ha'ir. The man, who was facing a trial for tax evasion to the tune of millions of dollars, had requested that the rabbanim, shlit"a, pray for him.Do I have to comment?????????
The gedolim took the sheet of paper and began praying for his success.
Two days before Rosh Chodesh Ellul ..... the United States government decided to drop the charges against him. ..... "It is clearly yad Hashem" the man cried out. He contributed an additional $3,600 in gratitude to Hashem for his rescue. In this case, it was clearly evident that a tzaddik's prayer makes an impression in Shamayim."
