Tragedy Strikes Bet Shemesh Family: 8 Orphans

There is a wonderful family in Beit Shemesh who I and my wife know very well.

This family live very simply and were able to support their family with 8 children..

The father is an exceptional Rebbe and works very hard for his beloved Talmidim and the mother also had some part time jobs.

Their lives took a hard turn when the mother (then 37years old) was diagnosed with cancer two years ago. At the time she was pregnant with their baby daughter, and although she went through treatments during the pregnancy, the baby was miraculously born in good health. The mother’s condition had deteriorated and they had to give the baby to a friend to care for.

With time, the mother has become so weak that they needed a woman help to care for their 8 children at home since the mother didn’t have the strength to do any housework.

Unfortunately, the mother's state has become terminal and she had been in the hospital in past month fighting between life and death. Their older daughter BE"H will be getting married this coming Thursday (July 14) and the mother is full of hope to be there, but we need a miracle for this to happen.



Unfortunately this past Thursday at 4:30PM the mother passed away. Miraculously she was buried in Har Hazaysim before shkiya that day and the Kallah Yesoma will be getting married this Thursday a day after the end of the Shiva. The 7 younger brothers and sisters (ages 1-13) will remain with their father, after a long traumatic period with their dear dying mother.

There will be need for outside help running the home and counselors and psychological help for the children.

The father will continue his teach but does not have the funds for these extra expenses that will cost $3000 a month and is also left with debt from the previous medical expenses.

Any one who can help save these poor Yesomim will be Mekayim nefesh b'yisrael and be zocheh to great bracha and rachamim from Avinu Shebashoma'im- Av Ha'yesomim!
