Taking Chesed To New Heights

World renowned philanthropist R' Shlomo Yehuda Rechnitz is taking Chesed to new heights tonight. A few days ago, a SCHI student, (The School for Children with Hidden Intelligence) mentioned to his teachers, family and friends his dream of flying to Eretz Yisroel.

Making that dream a reality was no simple matter as there were numerous logistical obstacles in the way. However, a teacher at SCHI - R'Chaim Birnhack- was determined to make it happen. Chaim began working on a budget and the logistics of such a complicated trip. Despite all the obstacles, Chaim knew he had to give his student the trip of a lifetime.



One of the biggest challenges was funding the trip. To raise the necessary funds, Chaim launched a donation website.

R' Shlomo Yehuda Rechnitz heard about the effort to raise money for this trip. He immediately recognized the importance of helping make this student’s dream a reality. R’ Shlomo Yehuda approached a Lakewood Askan with an extremely generous offer...

He would fly the SCHI student on his private plane to Eretz Yisroel for a ten day trip of a lifetime!

Tonight, R’ Shlomo Yehuda, the student, his teacher, Askonim and medical support staff are heading off to Eretz Yisroel, making what was almost an impossible dream into a fabulous reality!

  6. Not taking any credit from anybody. But i know of several huge gevirim that do millions of dollars of chesed anually and just by coincidence, we never hear or read about it anywhere.

  8. Just curious, why does everything Mr. Rechnitz do have to be publicized like this. I admire his chessed and tzedaka but why is such a big deal made of everything? You never hear about all the tzedaka and chessed of Ralph Herzka, Ruby Schron, Dovid Bodner etc.

    1. Rh,Rh and Db are alluch older and they already had thier days of fame and plenty of it too. Rechnits is much younger and hes still got the young blood in him. Besides rechnits is the only oisher that i know of who actually made a dent with his speech.

  14. I would bet all the negative comments are coming from people that never actually gave anything they earned to anybody. Their definition of Tzedaka is inventing a "tzveck" and then going shnorring from their friends. Their definition of earning a buck is selling credit card points and taking advantage of the latest Dans Deals "scams"

    1. I would bet that your a balabooos who hates kolel yungerlite. And you were never able to sit and learn for more than 3 minutes before the ants in your pants took hold of you and you were thus thrown out of yeshivas all your life. And now your definition of yidishkite has nothing to do with Torah but based on whats on the blogs, and how many people were in Uman and how much garlic to put into your pitcha

    2. "and how much garlic to put into your pitcha.... "

    1. No one is brown nosing they all want a zechus in the mitzva. Just like by ya above avinu the stones were fighting "alay yaniach tzadik es Rosho"

      Delete
    2. Nothing to do with the guys who went along. It's the people who are taking credit for getting the ball rolling WHEN IT WAS THE KID HIMSELF WHO SET UP THE GO FUND ME PAGE AND SPOKE TO THE DOCTORS!!!

    3. "no one is brown nosing" hahahaa ..right!
