Hello,

 

My name is Devorah Ben Dahan … and my family is in a horrible situation.

 

Baruch Hashem we moved to Eretz Yisroel a few years ago from French Polynesia. Our Hebrew is not great and so we have really struggled to find work. We were getting by okay until recently when my husband lost his job. I am a high school teacher but my salary alone wasn’t enough to pay our bills. And then the unthinkable happened .. we were unable to pay our rent and we were kicked out of our apartment. Homeless, with 3 kids. I cannot even tell you the humiliation.

 

Before this I thought that people who were homeless had issues, that there was something wrong with them. But we’re just a regular Jewish family, with two working parents doing their best, and it happened to us. Right now we are sleeping on the couches of friends. It is so, so difficult.

 

Baruch Hashem my husband has work now and it looks like things will get a little better, but we are far from being able to move into a new place. I am asking you, Jewish people, to please see in us yourselves, just a regular family who is being put through a very difficult test. I am so humbled in front of the world and the Creator to say that we desperately need help, to get us on our feet and get us into a home with electricity and water and heat until things are normal again.

 

Thank you, and Hashem should bless you,

 

Devorah
