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 losing her home - 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. She receives almost no help from Social Security in the USA. The pension from Israel is very little and she cannot meet her bare bones expenses. Her late husband learned Torah day and night. Their life together was involved in the G-dly work of helping others.

 

Despite her challenges, she thanks Hashem for the good as well as the not so good. She has a gift to help people with their problems but they rarely can afford to pay her anything. This business will allow her to do her craft, to create an income and to stay in Eretz Yisrael where her heart and soul are. She also has medical expenses for her conditions that are not covered by Kupat Cholim. She really is in dire straits with no family to turn to for help.

 

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 MY FRIEND: 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.

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

She hopes and prays to be a worthy recipient and to someday give back to the world what's been given to her. She is willing to speak in detail to anyone who can help her 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 SHE WILL DAVEN FOR YOU.
