Our beloved Mel Reisfield, legendary Young Judaea educator and icon, is ailing and is currently in the hospital in Jerusalem. All who wish to send their love and get-well wishes are encouraged to post them on the Young Judaea website.
A few times a week YJ alumni Gil Troy and Heidi Stern, close friends of the Reisfields, will print out these blessings and share them with Mel and his family.
To respect the family's privacy, and because Mel has some good days and some more difficult days, we are asking close friends who wish to visit him in the hospital to use discretion.
Mel, Yaffa and their family are feeling everyone's love and are buoyed by it.
The Young Judaea Family
