Summary: We introduce and solve explicitly a hierarchical approximation to the random field Ising model. This approximation is defined in terms of Peierls' contours. It exhibits a spontaneous magnetization in \(d>2\) and illustrates some of the ideas used in the proof of that result for the real RFIM. In \(d=2\), there is no spontaneous magnetization, but a very slow decay of correlations. However, we argue that this latter property is an artifact of the approximation. For the real RFIM, we expect exponential decay of correlations for any value of the disorder.
