Hello, my name is Meira. Last week, the unthinkable happened to our family. My husband Yosef and I were eating dinner with the kids. Suddenly, he collapsed, clutching his chest. He passed away. I was shaking him, praying that he would wake up. The ambulances came and we were crying, thinking soon this would all be over. But he was gone. I can’t believe the words as I type them.

Our four children and I are sitting shiva now.

On top of this devastation, I am so humbled and embarrassed to say that we need help.

My husband was a shochet … He supported our family. I am physically disabled, and unable to work, so I’ve stayed home with the kids. Now we have no income. I don’t know how we will pay the rent this month. I don’t know how we will meet our expenses. We just married off two kids, so our savings are depleted.

Please, klal yisroel, if you can open your hearts and help us, we wouldn’t have enough words to thank you. May you never need the support of others, and may you always have happiness in your home, and may you never know pain.

 

Meira
