There is a remarkable young woman here in Israel, Lets call her Chavi. She is truly an inspiration. About two years ago, her first husband became very violent with Chavi and her children and later took his own life. Last summer, in an attempt to re-build her shattered life, Chavi made Aliyah with her children. Soon afterwards, she met a young man who was happy to marry her and help her raise her 6 boys. That was then.
A few weeks ago, this young man publicly announced that he found a new girlfriend and left Chavi 38 weeks pregnant. Chavi was at the end of her rope. The depression she felt was deepening by the day. She felt so broken and publicly humiliated. Then, someone took her to hear Rabbi Lazer Brody speak in the Golan. The speech revived her, and gave her new life. They brought her to Rabbi Brody, after the speech, and he spoke to her and Blessed her. Ever since, she has been clinging to Rav Brody's words and her new-found emuna. The Garden of Gratitude has not left her hands. It is her life now. She is thanking Hashem for it all! She draws her life from it night and day.
This past Shabbos disaster struck again. There was a terrible fire in Chavi's apartment. She lost everything - except her children, Baruch Hashem! The landlord is blaming her for the fire and wants her to pay for the damages, but it was not her fault at all. She has been staying in a temporary dwelling with her children and was told this morning that she must be out in another week! She is due to have a baby in two weeks!! Hashem have Mercy! Her children are beyond traumatized. They have not received any help. One is already showing signs of a serious mental disturbance since the fire. Yet, with all of this, Chavi does not complain. She is not bitter. She has accepted all of this and continues to pray. Chavi does not want to be a burden to anyone although she already feels like she is a burden.
This woman needs immediate assistance. Please give generously to our holy sister. Help her to put a roof over her head and to feed her children. She has no family to help her. She is pregnant and cannot run around looking for shelter. Please! give generously to this tender neshoma and her children, and in the merit of your generosity, may Hashem protect you and yours from all severe judgments.
Wishing you Blessing and Success,
Dr. Zev Ballen
