HEARTBREAKING: Boy Begging Mother Not To Leave Him

“Ima, please don’t leave me.”


Eli Rabinowitz clutches his mother, tears streaming down his face and he takes shaky breaths, inhaling the soothing, familiar scent of his mother. 


A year ago, Eli’s mother, Miriam Rabinowitz, was diagnosed with cancer. The doctors only gave her a month to live, but Miriam defied their predictions, fighting with epic heroism and strength to be able to be there, and stay alive, for her sixteen children.


“Eli…My sweet, special, Eli.” Miriam gently pulls Eli back and cups his face in her hands, looking deep into his terrified hazel eyes.


“Put your hand on my heart, Eli. Do you feel that? I want you to put your hand on your own heart now. Your heart and mine, they are beating with the same blood. Eli, no matter what happens to me, I want you to know that I will always be with you. If you ever miss me, if you ever feel lost, put your hand on your heart. Feel the rhythm of my love. No matter what happens, Eli, my love for you will stay alive. Forever.”


Three days later, Eli put that same hand on his heart, sobbing his little eyes out, as he watched his mother’s body wrapped in a tallis at her levaya.

“Miriam was a true tzadekkes and the epitome of an eishes chayil,” laments her husband, R’ Rabinowitz.
