Every child relies on their mother for comfort and care, and no one else can take her place. It’s heartbreaking to see my children suffer because their mother is seriously ill and unable to care for them. We had to travel to the US for her surgery and treatments, leaving our young children behind without a mother or father to tuck them in at night, feed them, listen to their Yeshiva stories, or comfort them when they wake up frightened in the middle of the night. Coming back home didn’t make things much better. My wife is bedridden and can hardly speak. The children can only walk by her bedside in the morning to wish her a good day, but that’s about it.
I’m the father of a large Mishpacha living in Yerushalayim. I’ve already married off some of my children while doing my best to support the rest of my family. Unfortunately, my wife was diagnosed with a serious illness, and she recently underwent a major surgery in the USA. The surgery included an implant to reduce swelling and help her speak. This has thrown our already fragile financial situation into a complete disaster. I can barely afford to put food on the table anymore.
As a result, I haven’t been able to leave the house to try and raise funds. I’m occupied with taking care of my wife and children. Thankfully, my son has taken it upon himself to help us through this challenging time. The Rabbanim have recognized the urgency of our situation and have elevated it to a matter of Pikuach Nefashos.
I Daven that your kindness in helping my family will be rewarded, and may all your Tefilos be answered L’Tova. May the Brachos promised by the Rabbanim come true.
