Local Single Mom Needs Our Help
A Crown Heights single mother has fallen upon a crisis. Her marriage of many years fell apart in difficult circumstances, and she is left caring for more than 5 children alone. Sadly and unfortunately, her ex-husband is refusing to contribute his share towards the support of the children, and the bills have grown and grown.
Raising a large family is a challenge for a happily-married couple—for a single mother, it can seem like an impossibility. She is facing a daunting challenge: juggling housework, caring for her little ones, and earning a living, all without the support of the children’s father. Her expenses have simply outpaced the income she can bring in, and she has fallen deeply into debt.
Mibsarcha al tisalam—let’s help our fellow Jew. The mitzvah of tzedakah is especially crucial when it is someone from our own community: aniyei ircha kodmin. As you consider the many worthy causes for tzedakah, this is one that will make the difference in the very lives of this family.
