Shidduchim SOS: "Nothing was working out for me, I couldn't even get a date. I was down in spirit and so I decided I was going to take a break and just see where life takes me."
Please do the best you can to help the family.
When the last of the movers left the house, Yossi couldn’t keep it in anymore: “Mommy”, he burst into tears, “why do we have to move every few months? Why can’t I be a child like all my friends, with a home of our own?”
“Yossi”, mommy answered, trying not to expose her overflowing feelings, “we don’t have a choice. We had to sell our home in order to pay for Tatty’s healthcare and treatment. It costs a fortune, and with the money we got from the house, we pay can afford the expensive treatments for Tatty.”
But this unfortunately didn’t help.
A month ago, on motzei Rosh HaShana, R’ Shulem Globerman passed away, 9 months after he started bravely battling cancer. He left his wife and 9 children alone, with no roof over their head, after they were forced to sell their home in an attempt to save his lift.
Please do the best you can to help the family. Donate to save family

Father of 8 Kids Lost his Job - Please Help
When tragedy strikes, we are all enthusiastic to help. When we see children with torn shoes and clothes or a disabled man we help them as much as we can.
But would you recognize a father that lost his job and was left with enormous debt and has no income for the past few months?
Would you be able to see a fellow friend that davens in your shul or lives in your building, would you be able to see the weight of bills on his shoulders?
And the day to day pressure to provide for his family?
I'm writing this with no other choice asking to please help us at this time in our life.
Please help a father and his family of 8 children ka"h while he's still with his family thank G-d, rather than wait for the worst.
Please send your donations with PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org and Hashem will surely repay you! May we help each other only for simchas!
