We must help Maayan NOW!

Her phlegm is fatal...the ventilator is beeping...

Each person is critical to make this happen

Please, spread the word to all to try to raise a minimum of $50 from friends & neighbors!


"Maayan's machine is beeping... I have to go now...pray!"

A child's breathing ventilator beeps in the background mid-sentence as Devorah Hadassah, Maayan's mother leaves the above voice message for her friend.

If the beep is not attended to right away, G-d forbid, a child could choke on their phlegm filled breathing passages. This is the fragility that 11-yr-old Maayan faces everyday.  Maayan's parents, Yochanan and Devorah Hadassah are on call 24/7 with the above scenario repeating itself many times per day and night.  Unfortunately, emergency visits to the hospital are not uncommon.

Maayan has Batten’s Disease, a degenerative nervous system disease, which has currently caused in Maayan, epilepsy, blindness, and severe degenerative lung disease.


The family of seven has moved, going on 8 times in the past 9 years. 

With each move, the family faces fear of a critical situation worsening.  It is daunting and dangerous.


• Help update her critical medical equipment that is failing.

• Help get her out of the danger zone of constant moving and gain stability and safety, once and for all.

The time is NOW to help this beautiful family!
YOUR contribution will help.

YOUR legal referral can help.

YOUR housing referral can help.

YOUR davening for Maayan bat Devorah Hadassah will help, B'Eezras H-shem!

This campaign is under the auspices of Rabbi Aaron David Neustadt, K'hal Chassidim, Neve Yaakov, Jerusalem with brachos and haskamos from Rav Shmuel Steinhaus, Yavniel.

Message from Devorah Hadassa Liebermann, Maayan’s mother

August 10, 2019 / Tisha B’Ave 57759

“The child reminds me of a china teapot…oh so priceless…and to be moved from chair to bed with utmost caution…Oh please G-d no…let her breathe…let her be okay…”

I winced just now as I walked into Maayan's bedroom to administer late night meds. I my warm tear rested on her very soft cheek and I wondered how she feels this Tisha b 'Av. My thoughts went immediately to how delicate she is and how the upcoming move is fraying on my nerves due to her precarious condition. Just now as I'm writing I jumped off of my stool as she with out a warning beeped signaling distress. Oh please G-d no..let her breathe..let her be okay. Often on important holy days she suffers more so than other days..lo aleinu.

This child reminds me of a china teapot oh so priceless and to be moved from chair to bed with utmost caution... let's alone home to home.

In August 2019, we just moved to our 8th home in 9 and a half years because our lease is up and the landlord wants his home. Our hearts are heavy for we understand and feel the shechina in exile more than ever.

IyH one day Maayan will be stable in her own home and we won't have to reestablish her in home hospital again and again. Surely this will bring her inner peace and safety.

IyH😌L Shem Shamayim


Rav Shmuel Steinhaus, Yavniel, Israel introducing Maayan and the Lieberman Family.

“Please H', may someone out there be the needed shaliach... to be able to help us find a way to have a permanent home in Israel for Maayan and stop uprooting her mini hospital and this family. B”H we hope to share good news! L’Shem Shamayim

-Devorah Hadassa


The Lieberman family has a very unique situation.

They moved to Israel 9 years ago with two healthy children BH ages 1 and 3. Two years later unbeknownst to them their one year old named Maayan became terribly ill with the onset of Batten's disease a rare degenerative neurological disease which she was diagnosed with 5 years later and multiple hospitalizations later.

The disease has as of today resulted in

  • severe lung disease

  • Loss of vision

  • Severe epilepsy

  • This once healthy child has also stopped walking talking swallowing and

  • needs 24 HR life support to not choke on her phlegm.

The government of Israel has promised Maayan a home now for 5 years due to her handicap needs.

Maayan’s Needs:

• Handicap-accessible, hospital-equipped Mini In-Home Hospital
• Debt incurred due to underemployment: our full time job 24/7
• Foreign worker salary (x3 years is $90,000)

• Critical medical needs:

  • Electrical generator for electrical emergencies

  • Updated Vest lung equipment as hers is slowly tearing and doesn't fit

  • High-tech inhalation machines as well as other medical and personal needs for Maayan

  • Lung therapy machine is broken and needs a replacement

  • Daily inhalation device is not functioning properly

  • Second inhalation device needed specific to administering specific medication

  • Intercom/ video system needed to monitor efficiently throughout home and outside of home

Maayan & the Liebermann Family is Already Helping So Many Others!


Maayan Lieberman is an angelic little girl, who from the age of 3 years old, began exhibiting signs of a rare, degenerative, neurological disorder, know as Batten’s disease. It is a severe lung disease that offers an array of heart-stopping symptoms; acute epilepsy, loss of vision, degeneration of all faculties (she functioned as any regular child. Now she cannot walk or talk), and she needs 24hr life support to make sure she does not choke on the phlegm build up.

Deborah Hadassa and Yochanan, the stalwart parents of a family of 5, have all the daily needs and struggles of a regular large family – that has made aliya. For most of us, that in itself is an undertaking that requires stamina, patience, resources and tons of emuna. When they made aliyah from North Carolina, Maayan was a happy-go-lucky 1-year-old, with one 3 yr old sister. Their lives took a drastic turn when Maayan began having violent seizures, followed by rapid degeneration of her voluntary functions. After years of in and out hospitalizations, the family decided to set up an in a home-hospitalization. They wanted her to remain with her other four siblings, and always be part of the family, as opposed to institutionalizing her. One of the biggest challenges they face is just keeping Maayan safe. She needs constant supervision with her feeding tube, medications and constant suctioning of the phlegm in her lungs. When she coughs she can aspirate if it's not suctioned immediately. As well as dealing with unrelenting epilepsy.

Modeh ani lifanecha, will never be the same for me and many others! Devora Hadassa in her inimitable way starts our mornings off with her beautiful voice letting us all know that we are blessed to be able to have another day of life!”, says Estee Zimmerman from Montreal, who has been on the What’s app chat for a few years. Emuna Upgrades with Maayan, the chat that was started as an off-shoot from a different what’s app group, is inspiring many people around the world, from all different walks of life. From the moment Devorah Hadassa began the group, her life has changed immeasurably - especially her nights. The nights, which consist of watching Maayan vigilantly, making sure she is breathing and turning her over from time to time, were mainly a challenge that she faced in complete solitude. She and her husband have seen the hand of Hashem in every moment of this journey, but that did not take away from the loneliness and anguish of the quiet early morning hours. Suddenly the chat allowed her to have support from around the world, to request prayers when Maayan’s fever spikes, or when her lungs fill with water. She was able to receive strength from outside her realm, and in turn, has inspired so many people, mothers especially in the plight of keeping her daughter alive, whilst having complete faith and unwavering calm. Estee adds, “ We are in awe of the way Devorah Hadassa can let us in and share with us - what to our ears - is the most heart wrenching or difficult complex situations , and yet she doesn’t see it quite like that , she works it though and takes us with her as she talks to G-d! It’s not fake , it’s real and we see her “flip” the negative energy and use it to create Mitzvos all through Maayan !” 

“Maayan inspires each person to DO more, PRAY more & HOPE more”

“My husband and I are extremely grateful that Am Yisrael has come together under the auspices of this group.”, quips Deborah Hadassa. “My original intention was to bring Maayan’s inspiration to Klal Yisrael – which it has done. But what I never imagined was the strength that it gives her in return!”

Like all mothers, Deborah Hadassa is able to read and understand Maayan’s emotions and expressions, through intuition. Se reads the comments from people to Maayan, people send videos of their kids and Maayan’s expressions change, she opens her eyes. Devorah Hadassa can sense the happiness that in evokes in Maayan. The input for Maayan is extremely healing. In turn, each documented struggle of Maayan’s inspires each person on the chat, to do more, pray more and hope more.

It was through the efforts of the women on the Whats app group, who have banded together after the Lieberman family’s lease expired. This will be the fifth move for them. A move for any regular family is stressful and costly, but in their case they would have to move a mini hospital each time, and watch Maayans precarious position possibly worsen due to the changes around her and the influx of stress and pressure on the family. The ladies of the chat have begun a chesed fund campaign - with the intention of raising money for the Liebermans that they can actually buy a house in Israel, and have some financial burdens alleviated.

Devorah Hadassa and Yochanan are floored at the achdut of Am Yisrael. “Tears come to my eyes when I stop to ponder the immensity of your commitment to bring this child and her family a stable home in Eretz Yisrael. HoDu L’Hasem Ki Tov, Ki l’olam chasdo. (Give thanks to Hashem for He is good. His kindness endures forever!)”



Your contribution to this tremendous, yet humble child and family will bring us closer to Mashiach.
We want Ma'ayan to usher in Mashiach personally. And we believe she will. With the help from all Am Yisrael.

When I met this amazing family, they had two beautiful girls, and the mother was pregnant with their third child. They made aliyah from North Carolina to Be'er Sheva, and I met them soon thereafter. Devorah Hadassa, the mother of the family, and I hit it off right away. Eventually they moved away from Be'er Sheva. Over the next few years, along with having more children, Devorah and her husband Yochanan were deep in hospital visits and tests for their second child, Ma'ayan, who had started to have seizures. I remembered Ma'ayan as a gorgeous little two year old, perfectly healthy. But at around age three, a rapid deterioration began, that was out of the grasp of the medical community. Nobody had any idea what was happening to this formerly healthy child. Seizures, and eventual regression in all areas of independence... walking, talking, seeing, swallowing, toileting. It was very, very scary, and none of the medications the doctors tried seemed to work. Nobody could figure out what was rapidly happening to this once perfectly healthy child.

Eventually, through a very brilliant neurologist and rigorous genetic testing, an answer was found. It's called Batten disease (type CLN2). It is a recessive genetic disorder. It is also known to be fatal; May Hashem continue to grant her breath and life!

The family decided to keep Ma'ayan home, in a home-hospitalization set-up. She was no longer physically safe being in a school setting. They wanted her to remain with her other four siblings, and always be part of the family, as opposed to institutionalizing her. Ma'ayan needs round-the-clock care with her feedings (through a tube in her abdomen), medications, and constant suctioning of the phlegm in her lungs which she cannot swallow when she coughs (and can aspirate, chas v'shalom, if it's not suctioned immediately). This is an aspect of Batten disease, a constant state of severe lung disease. Together with the severe epilepsy she still deals with daily, the family has struggled day and night just to keep Ma'ayan safe.

They have had wonderful household help, and some medical helpers keeping watch on Ma'ayan for time periods, but nothing consistent enough. The other four children need everything that healthy kids need, also. Devorah and Yochanan don't sleep much. Someone always has to be awake with Ma'ayan 24/7.

They have finally been granted the assistance of having a foreign worker live with them to assist with Ma'ayan. The worker came September 2018. The expense however is tremendous. Neither parent is able to work and bring in an income because of Ma'ayan's round-the-clock care needs. The family is living on the generosity of the State of Israel's assistance, but it's not nearly enough.

Contributing to this family's needs, specifically Ma'ayan's needs, is an act of such tremendous merit because Ma'ayan is such a tremendously righteous soul.

When considering where to contribute your ma'aser, please turn to helping Ma'ayan and her family pay for keeping Ma'ayan safe and happy.

I listened to you today, Devorah H. Hashem poured His love for You onto You. The hashgacha pratit and the divine moment for you as you expressed everything on your heart, in a safe place of pure love. I send you my whole heart. Of peace and of pure Love and to every women here. In that place of vulnerability, of surrender is a love so profound…I say this about the power of Love. Of love expressed in ways that we can’t always verbalize. I felt everything you said in ways I couldn’t before. I even feel me in ways I couldn’t before. Hashem’s Love is incredible. I love you with my whole heart ❤

Receive the moment with awareness…

It for us only to try to remember to realize there is a Creator who is doing everything and loves us and see that everything He sends is a natural resource with which we may choose to make a blessing.
Then take each day, each hour, each minute, each moment... it becomes how to receive a moment...and that is emunah and then our action is bitachon, bringing blessing and good.
Receive the moment with awareness...that is our constant effort.

The Tikun / Rectification of Sinas Chinam is the very opposite. The tshuva to bring Moshiach is AHAVAS CHINAM ­­– UNCONDITIONAL LOVE.
— Rabbi Yizchak Ginsburgh



“When your wellsprings will spread forth to the outside.”

ויפוצה מעיינך בחוצה

 The Three Weeks: Employing Positive Defense Mechanisms to Bring the Mashiach by Rabbi Yizchak Ginsburgh

 [min 15:03] Because of our sins, we have been exiled from our land. The reason that the 2nd Bais Hakikdash was destroyed was because of sinas chinam and hatred between people for no reason. So therefore the tikun / rectification of sinas chinam is the very opposite. The tshuva to bring Moshiach is AHAVAS CHINAM ­­– UNCONDITIONAL LOVE. Just like the sin was unconditional hatred, the tikun is unconditional love.  

That is one very basic thing to bring about redemption. We should state between ourselves that “the love between ourselves is unconditional.”

There are other things that are said about the way to bring about Redemption. Pointing to some practical things we have to do, the Zohar says, the way we bring about Redemption is with Chesed and Rachamim, kindness and compassion. is through disseminating the teachings of the Zohar itself. About Rashbi, Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai zt’l, it says “with your composition the whole world will go out of the exile / galus with mercy and compassion.”

That took a deeper meaning and dimension when the Besh’t, the Baal Shem Tov, zt’l, 1500 years later, asked Moshiach, “When are you coming?” Moshiach answered, ויפוצה מעיינך בחוצה  “When your wellsprings will spread forth to the possible extreme.”
