Hello, my name is Bluma Stern...

I'm a mom of 14 kids. My late husband, Rav Hillel Shalom Stern zt”l, passed away from cancer just two months ago. Since then I have been struggling to keep my family afloat. 

 

My children have stuck together to help each other, and to help me during this painful time. I work part time assisting senior citizens. Now my dear son Bentzion is engaged. We are now trying our very best to give my son and his kallah a modest wedding. The chuppah is one month away, and unfortunately, we have far from enough. They are missing the essentials, and have nowhere to live after the chasuna.

 

At this point, our options are to ask for tzedaka, or to call off the wedding, chas v'shalom. Chas v'shalom to put my children through that after everything they've already been through. But how can I do it, one woman alone, I do not know. 

 

Now there are only 2 weeks left until the wedding. I am asking you with tears in my eyes and a heart full of pain and hope, please do the mitzvah of hachnasas kallah, and help my son and his kallah to get started. I am begging you as a widow and as a mother to please help a truly desperate family. Thank you so much. Bluma

 

Donations can also be made to Kupat Ha’Ir Fund # 5111

 

 

Baruch Hashem many choshuve rabbanim who know my family, and know my situation, have written letters on our behalf. We are praying that their words will inspire people to help.
