BLITZ CAMPAIGN! URGENT APPEAL FROM THE NOVOMINSKER REBBE SHLITA:
‘Whoever helps this Almanah, who has lost both husband and teen-aged daughter will be rewarded with Simchos and Nachas and Kol Minei Yeshuos.’ (Novominsker Rebbe)
Here in the words of the Almanah
“I cannot beg for help! I cannot! But what should I do?? My husband, a Tzaddik and Talmid Chacham , was niftar after battling a horrible disease for many years leaving me with 10 young Yesomim and a pile of bills.
I know there are so many tragedies, one forgets the one that happened yesterday. But I don’t.
I think of each new Almonah and cry, because I know that besides for the gripping loneliness and the terrifying indecisiveness there is always worry about the BILLS.
Just when I was seeking the bottom of my grief after losing my husband, I discovered that grief could be so bottomless as to astound the mind into numbness. My beautiful precious daughter, a blossoming rose was also suddenly plucked away from me, only months after my husband’s Petira!
Everyone moves on with their busy lives, but I had to find the resolve to struggle with my new reality! I bear the crushing burden of keeping my other children stable, positive and confident despite our poverty and grief. I need to wear a mask of control and happiness while I play father, mother and breadwinner to my children.
Now my daughter B”H is engaged (!) and the wedding is set for June. I know I should be grateful, and I am!
But what do I answer to the Mechutanim when it’s my turn to put down the deposits? To whom shall I turn?
So now I worry about extra wedding expenses all on my own.
With the Bracha of “Megalglin Zchus Al Yedai Zakai”, I ask that you PLEASE HELP ME!
