Hello my name is Tali

 

Two weeks ago, we lost my husband, Rabbi Dovid Sher a”h, father of our five young children, after a long and horrible battle with kidney disease. For a few years we watched him suffer terribly, in and out of hospitals, in horrible pain. Now he is gone, and we will always remember him for who he was before he was sick - a strong amazing person and loving father.

 

During the time that he was sick we kept it very private that we were struggling financially. We couldn’t pay the rent, we couldn’t buy groceries .. Dovid left his job because he was too sick to work. I left my job to accompany him to hospital visits. We had no income for a long stretch of time.  

Now that Dovid is gone, I have to think of the future. I am now alone with five children who need food, clothing, and other essential things.

I am choosing to put our story here because I know that I have to do whatever I can to give my kids what they need. Imagine the pain they are already in. To also not have food to eat? It would break my heart even more.

If you can help us during this mourning period it would be very, very meaningful - you would be paying for our rent, for the kids’ clothing, for our regular expenses. 

I bless you that you and your family should be safe, that your children should never go hungry, and that Hashem should give you strength and comfort in your times of suffering. Tali Sher
