Today I received the following email.
"On Monday, I asked a friend of mine to ask Rav Chaim Kanievsky, Shlita for a brocho for the Landsman family. They asked that Yisrael wake up from his coma so they can speak to him one last time.
R’ Chaim sadly answered, “Tell the family that they should accept the gezeira (the decree)”.
Yesterday, less than a day later, Mrs. Landsman discovered a video of Yisrael that was shot five years ago at a Purim seuda. She and several of her children had never known of this video.
I have attached a link to the video. Listen to the message (recorded 5 years ago!) that Yisrael Landsman sent his family yesterday.
P.S. If this email was forwarded to you and you don’t know who Yisrael Landsman is:
Yisrael is a 54 year old talmid chacham, father of 13, who lived in Eretz Yisrael and taught shechita and safrus. He lost one child to crib death and another, Nechama, to a 5 year battle with cancer. His love of life, Hashem, His Torah and His people is legendary. He is in the end stages of a ferocious battle with an extremely rare and horrific skin cancer. He told me several weeks ago that his suffering (which is impossible to describe) should be a kapora for Klal Yisrael.
Please daven for Yisrael Refoel ben Sora Nesha and do mitzvos as a z’chus for him, particularly mitzvos of Ahavas Yisrael and Sholom."
