                              SUPPORTED BY
           **   REBBETZIN SARA YOHEVED RIGLER **


My name is Sara Yoheved Rigler. I have known this widow for 32 years, both in Brooklyn, then in Eretz Yisrael. By the age of 18, she was orphaned of both her father and her mother. She eventually married and had four children. Her husband was a talmid chachum and a teacher of Torah, but they always struggled financially. He passed away when she was 38 years old, leaving her with nothing but debts. She worked hard all her life to support her four children and marry them off. Now she is in her mid-sixties and is worried about how she will pay the rent every month. She gets only $109 per month from U.S. Social Security, and NIS 1500 per month from Bituach Liumi, which obviously is not enough to live on. None of her four children can help her, as they all have serious problems—dysfunction, Aspergers, etc. Please open your heart and your hand and give generously. Best would be if you can commit to a monthly stipend of $108 or even $54 per month, so that she does not have to worry about paying rent every month. Hashem Yisborach always blesses those who respond to the needs of widows and orphans (and she is both). I can vouch that this widow is a Yirei Shamayim and her need is genuine.

______________________________________________________

You  can make a difference ...you can bring light to a widow in Yerushalayim.

It is a beautiful thing when one person helps another... please reach into your loving pockets.....and receive four mitzvahs.

My dear friend is a struggling 67 year old widow who lives in fear of not being able to pay her rent on a monthly basis. She very much hopes to make a livelihood to help herself and her family. Although she wakes up in terrible pain, she wants and needs to use her G-d given talent to grow her small business. She is a sweet, special and humble neshama and a gifted artist who is determined to make her business a success. She also has an adult son who is on the spectrum and overloaded with challenges. Her late husband learned Torah day and night. Their life together was involved in the G-dly work of helping others.

 

Her Rabbi says that by helping her you will receive four mitzvahs:

1.  Helping a widow who was herself orphaned as a child. The Torah tells us one receives untold blessings for helping widows and orphans.

2.  Helping someone to stand on her own two feet with parnassa (income). Rambam says this is the highest mitzvah. 

3. Helping someone to live in Eretz Yisrael. 

4. Having a share in the work she does with kiruv (helping people come closer to their precious heritage) and helping people with addictions. She strives to help others become functioning members of Am Yisrael and to create a happier, healthier, more peaceful world.

*******************************************************************************

FROM THE WIDOW: The Torah says every time we do a mitzvah we are standing in a beam of light that then guides our way in a miraculous manner. We are all connected to each other through an invisible cord, when one person in Klal Yisrael heals, everyone around them heals.

It is a very beautiful thing when one person gives to another. Together, the giving and the receiving clear a path, a space for Hashem's Divine flow to come down and occupy the space. May the space you create be filled with blessings in your life for all that you need and want and may that happen in a beautiful and joyous way. May our giving and receiving, together, help bring the time of Moshiach that we are all waiting for.

I hope and pray to be a worthy recipient and to someday give back to the world what's been given to me.  I am willing to speak in detail to anyone who can help and to offer prayers at sunrise in the heart of the world, where all prayers go up and all blessings flow down. Should you choose to donate, PLEASE LEAVE YOUR NAME AND THE NAME OF YOUR MOTHER AND I WILL DAVEN FOR YOU.
