Hello, my name is Avi Matisyahu. I am Baruch Hashem a father to 11 children, 7 still at home. We live in a 2-room apartment.

 

8 years ago my dear wife Chaya Leah was diagnosed with cancer. She died shortly after our youngest was born. We were left behind, myself and 11 devastated kids. 

 

For years we fought against the tide of poverty and debt, but as one man providing alone for a large family, and raising them without a wife, it has been extremely difficult. We missed many of our apartment payments. The owners of the apartment have long fought to have us evicted. We have nowhere to go.

 

During all of this, my own health has declined. I suffered a heart attack, and hemorrhaging in my brain. While I was in the hospital, something shocking happened: In an attempt to evict us completely, they came and took almost all of our belongings. It was completely devastating.

 

Dear klal yisrael, we are in horrible debt. Tonight is likely our last night in this home - after this we have nowhere to go. Most of our possessions were taken away. We are turning to you. 7 children, and myself, an aging man, with major health issues. It is so difficult to say these things publicly in this way but we are truly out of options. I pray that you will see us, think of our children, of what they have been through, and help.

 

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this, and if you can help tizku l’mitzvos

 

Avi
