I’m Shifra Wilhelm. For nearly 20 years, I was married to the love of my life. My husband supported our family by working as a mashgiach in kashrus in Europe. It was hard to be separate but we did what he worked hard and sacrificed so that we could have what we needed.

 

When we got the news that he was in a car accident, my worst fears came true. He was flown to a hospital in israel, and he was in a coma. “This will all pass soon, and life will go back to normal,” we told ourselves. But it didn’t.

 

For four long years, he lay in a hospital bed, his eyes closed. His body was a pale, skinny version of the fahter & husband we had before. But he was gone. Last month, his precious soul was returned to Hashem.

 

Now I’m here, a mother of 9, home alone with the kids. The medical expenses took everything we had. I can’t work hard enough to support my family. We have very, very little. The approaching chagim fill me with fear.

 

One of the most painful things is that he will miss our son Yossi’s wedding. Yossi is engaged. I don’t know how I will afford to give him and his kallah security for their future.

 

This is an extremely vulnerable time in our lives. If you can, please help us.

 

Thank you, Shifra
