Boy Recovering From Eye Surgery
Surgeon Dr. Steve Schwartz puts on Tefillin beofre the surgery

4-year-old Shmuly Oirechman, injured with an arrow on Lag B'Omer, has just come out of a 3-hour surgery in Los Angeles.

Update from the Oirechman Family:

Shmuly just came out of a 3-hour surgery. The doctor said it's the most severe injury he has ever seen. And he has been operating on people for almost 30 years. Still, he was able to reattach the retina, something he originally told us he wouldn't be able to do. In his words: it was a miracle we were able to do that.

It's still unknown if the eye was saved or not. We will know that in the next few days/ weeks. But if it was saved, there is a chance that he will be able to see. And that's another miracle as none of the doctors thought that would ever be possible.

The surgeon, Dr. Steve Schwartz put on Tefiilin before the surgery. He also had a Rebbe's dollar in his shirt pocket for the duration of the surgery. This was a dollar the Rebbe gave over 30 years ago to a 4 year old child that had a similar injury.

Please continue to say Tehillim, Daven and dedicate any Mitzvah, specifically an increase in Ahavas Yisroel and Tzedakah and Torah study, in merit of Baruch Shmuel Ben Chana for a full and speedy Refuah Shelaima


Shmuly Oirechman (Boruch Shmuel ben Chana) is going through a very critical surgery 10 AM EST, tomorrow, Tuesday at UCLA Stein Eye Institute.

Shmuly, the 4 year old son of Rabbi Schneur and Chana Oirechman, Shluchim to FSU and Tallahassee, Florida, was badly injured by an arrow on Lag Baomer.

The success of this surgery will IY”H determine the vision and use of the injured eye.

Shmuly and the Oirechman family believe in miracles and the power of prayer.

They ask everyone to please say Tehillim, Daven and dedicate any Mitzvah, specifically an increase in Ahavas Yisroel and Tzedakah and Torah study, in merit of Baruch Shmuel Ben Chana for a full and speedy Refuah Shelaima

Rabbi Schneur, Chanie and the Oirechman family’s hearts are open, full of gratitude and thanks to Hashem and each and every person; Anash, Shluchim, Balei Batim, friends and all that have recited Tehillim, sent love and good wishes and assisted and are helping during this challenging time for Shmuly and the family. They know the Tefilos are working and with Hashem’s help and the Rebbe’s Brochos, they are confident there will be continued progress and good news.

They extend tremendous Hakoros Hatov and thank all of the Shluchim, Shluchos, Anash and Baalei Batim for their overwhelming love, care, financial and logistical support during this time. And so many of you continue to help and assist in so many ways each day!

If you can, please help the Oirechman family with a generous donation and ask friends, family and balei batim to help as well.

For the next few months, they will need immediate out of pocket major funds, coupled with their ongoing daily responsibilities for their family and Mosod. They really need and appreciate all the support.

Today is the day that the Yidden arrived at har sinai.
All those who were wounded were healed. So it is a day of healing.

It is also a day of ahavas yisroel as it says they came to har sinai, and he camped like one man with one heart

As mentioned a few days ago...I'm a Retired RN from South Africa. I strongly feel The Rebbe's Brochas here that's guided this Yiddishe Doctor to repair little Shmueli's eyesight. By the fact that his retina has been resutured together, is a Brocha in itself that Shmueli will have an eminent & complete a Refuah

The boy in the Rebbe Picture
I posted this update in the Shulounge chat and Zevy Brummel said the boy in this photo is his brother Asher. He said Asher lent his Rebbe dollar to the Shmuels family as he recovers.

This is the story of what happened to Asher when he was younger:

When my brother Asher was almost 4 years old he was playing outside shul on shabbos. A boy threw a stick and it hit his eye. He was rushed into surgery with Dr Cohen. He had 27 micro stitches and they put a patch on his good eye so that he would start to use his hurt eye again. My father took him to the rebbe for dollars for 5 weeks in a row. Everytime, the rebbe would hold out the dollar and when Asher would try to grab it the rebbe moved it away so that he could find it and accept the dollar. After that period they took him back to the doctor and he said that his eye was healing at a much faster rate than anticipated, greater than the normal healing patterns especially with eye injuries.
Today my brother drives and can see out of that eye BH.
His eye is not perfect vision but he recovered more than the teva!

Just incredible!
Thank you Brummel family for sharing your story, and your Rebbe dollar!! This gesture of ahavas yisroel would surely give the Rebbe nachas ruach, and even more surely will speed up the arrival of Moshiach!
