Portraits of Grief 5779: Pinchas Menachem Prezuazman z”l

But man sets out for his eternal abode, With mourners all around in the street Ecclesiastes 12:5 (The Israel Bible™)

Every day, Breaking Israel News will be featuring one of the seventeen victims of Arab terror in the current Jewish year of 5779.

Today, we will profile Pinchas Menachem Prezuazman z”l.

On September 3, a healthy Jewish baby boy was born in Ashdod, Israel. Eight days later, during his Brit Milah (circumcision), he was named. His name – Pinchas Menachem.

The lad was named after his father – 22-year old Rabbi Pinchas Menachem Prezuazman h”yd. Rabbi  Prezuazman was walking in Ashdod back in May when he heard a red alert alarm go off. Realizing that he had less than a minute to run for cover, Prezuazman ran inside a building where he thought he was safe. Unfortunately, as soon as the rocket exploded on impact, the rabbi caught shrapnel to his upper body.

And although he was evacuated to a local hospital where he was treated, he eventually succumbed to his wounds shortly thereafter. He is survived by his wife and three children (including the newborn).

Sadly, the  Prezuazman family is no stranger to terrorist attacks. His 22-year old uncle Mordechai died in a terrorist attack on Mount Meron in northern Israel back in 2002.

These families are hurting. That’s because although their loved ones are gone, the pain still remains,

But this is where you can step in and help. That’s because Israel365 has launched a campaign to provide financial support for families who have lost their loved ones to terrorist attacks.

Together with your support, we can help rehabilitate those who can’t find the means to cope with such a sudden loss. The funds that you donate today will go to much-needed therapy, food, clothing and experiences that provide a glimmer of happiness during these dark times. 

We can’t prevent the next terror attack, but victims can at the very least find peace of mind in knowing that the nations of the world have their back when the unthinkable happens.

That’s why we’re asking you to give whatever you can. Remember, the commandment of tithes isn’t a demand for you to break the bank. It’s a commandment to set aside a small percentage of your earnings that are left over at the end of the month (if any). 

And blessed be Hashem Most High, Who has delivered your foes into your hand.” And [Avram] gave him a tenth of everything (Genesis 14:20)

Donate to this crucial cause today and do what you can do to help Israel win the war on terror. God’s enemies are in the field. This war isn’t just about killing the Jewish people – it’s about breaking their spirit. Don’t let that happen. Keep Israel strong. Help Israel win.
