This is what pure, unadulterated grief looks like.
Little children, eyes puffy from crying, heaving deep breaths of bravery, their older brothers arms protectively around them, as they say Boruch Dayan Haemes for their mother being buried, sobbing out their last unheard goodbyes. Their peyos swing and they shake their heads in disbelief, misery etched on their heartbreakingly young faces as a Rav tears their shirts.
Miriam Rabinowitz, the mother of sixteen children from Eretz Yisroel, has tragically passed on away several days ago after a 12 month epic battle with cancer.
“Miriam was a true tzadekkes and the epitome of an eishes chayil,” laments her husband, R’ Rabinowitz.
“With the simple meager income that we had she created a beautiful family and home, filled with warmth and love and overflowing with happiness…Miriam was everything to them, to us. We didn’t have anything else… If you can please help us it would be a tremendous help, to know that the kids will have what they need… Even if they won’t have what they need most of all: Their Ima.”
Money is being collected to help the Rabinowitzes survive the future ahead. Click here to read R’ Rabinowitz’s letter to the public.
The Rabinowitzes are now left with insufficient means to pay basic bills. The family has started a crowdfunding page to help the Rabinowitz kids regain some semblance of normalcy in their lives. Financial help is badly needed.
