I haven’t been in the coffee room for over a year, but I wanted to post an update on my family’s living situation. Last time I wrote, we were in dire straights; living off of the kindness of our fellow Yidden in our community.
Boruch HaShem!! After losing our business and our house in 2009, and living in abject poverty the past few years, I am happy to report that HaShem has showered us with mazel!
We made a kesher with an incredibly aidel and chashuvah business man whose skills complimented my husband’s. Every project they tackled started small and grew. Every dime that was made was reinvested. Now they have a company, an office and 3 full time employees!
It took time, patience and many hours of hard work, but my husband never gave up. Nothing was beneath them; the smallest or the most cumbersome job was accepted with pleasure. We don’t have savings yet, and still struggle to catch up on the many bills that have piled up over the years, but we no longer struggle from day to day and food once again is plentiful!
So, thank you readers for being there; thank you Tomchei Shabbos, who supported us in our most dire need, and THANK YOU HASHEM for all of the incredible brochas you have reined down on my family!December 31, 2013 3:51 pm at 3:51 pm #996956

Feif, Google “kosher filet mignon”.January 2, 2014 7:47 pm at 7:47 pm #996968
It’s not real filet mignon. They cut another piece of beef to look like filet mignon, but it’s not the same meat.
There are a few people who do nikkur on the meat, but they are mostly in Israel. They get hired mostly by restaurants. It’s extremely difficult to get it raw so you can cook it yourself.January 2, 2014 9:21 pm at 9:21 pm #996969
Right. That’s why it would be so nice if we could all afford it. 🙂
