Hi,

I’m Devorah Sofer. Mom with 6 kids at home. Widow. To you I may seem like any other lady on the street. But my journey has been a long and painful one. Getting by on my own without my husband, struggling to support my kids.

Life hasn’t been easy for these kids. My son Yaakov has had heart problems throughout his childhood. We were afraid we would lose him so many times. He was in and out of hospitals, and underwent many surgeries. Thank Gd, they were successful in making him healthy again.

We thought that was the end of our troubles. Then we lost my husband, their father.

Now I’m all alone. My sweet Yaakov, who struggled so much, is engaged now to a wonderful girl. I am working as hard as I can to support my family, to marry him off, to make it through the holidays. He is supposed to get married right after Sukkos. What will I tell him?

This Yom Kippur I will stand in shul, alone in the world in many ways. Without a husband, without a father for my children, without the money to keep us afloat. As I fast, and pray to the master of the world with tears in my eyes, I will think of our future. I will wonder how one woman can carry so much on his shoulders. And I will pray, with all of my heart, for you -- if you can help me to get through this challenge.

Please. Please help us. It’s too much for me to do alone.

Thank you.

Devorah.
