Message to sponsors:

It’s that time of the year again where I sit at night and ponder what I’ve learned, what I have accomplished and what I need to still work on. It’s that time of year for reflection and seeing where I came from and how far I’ve come until now.  I reflect on when I moved to Israel 14 years ago a young woman so much wanting to learn, grow and live in the Land of Israel. I met my Husband here, had our children here and have created an amazing life for our family surrounded by the most amazing support system. They say it takes a village to raise a family, well I am proof of that. I was truly blessed to meet my husband Eric David Most 13 ½ years ago in a cafe on Emek Refaim and from that day on, my life would change forever. We met February 5th 2006 and were married June 11th 2006. We lived in a beautiful neighborhood in Jerusalem and we both worked for Aish HaTorah creating educational programs and teaching for the many amazing groups and people who walked through the doors. A newly married couple looking forward to the future and all it had in store. 

    Within 5 months of being married we learned that Eric had stage 2 Hodgkins Lymphoma. The nurses and doctors had been so optimistic and so were we. We knew that we were expecting our first child. It was a rollercoaster of emotions.  We decided that we were going to live each day with appreciation, happiness and excitement. We went on each day continuing to work, we had 2 more children and we truly made every day as full and as whole as we could. This diagnosis would only build us and make us stronger, we were determined never to let it break us.

   As the years went on the cancer grew and treatments were tried and tested, each working a short amount of time and then his body would no longer respond, so we were on to the next medical treatment. While our main care took place in Hadassah Ein Kerem with the most loving nurses and doctors, the care we received outside of the hospital from Family friends and Hatzalah was also truly unbelievable. 

    In February of 2018 a couple days before Purim my husband passed away. His body lost the fight but his soul won the battle. As I sit here and reflect on this last year, and all the previous years, as most of us do during this time of the year, I wanted to think of something I could do to continue not only my husband’s legacy but to teach my children to continue on the path of gratitude and the importance of giving. Our oldest son Yaacov Binyamin (Coby) just turned 12 and we were thinking about what special mitzvah was something close to his heart and that would help others the way that his Abba had always helped others.  We came up with fundraising for Hatzolah. 

   Hatzolah has been to my home over 50 times in the last 12 years, but this is just my home, what about the countless other homes they have been too? They volunteer their services, but it's not just a service its a heart and soul too. I can’t express enough the amount of times they came to my home and not only saved my husbands life, but helped us all feel safe and calm, and how much our fears were diminished when they would arrive because we knew if they were here they would do everything possible to help. This act of kindness can never truly be repaid but it’s done anyway from the greatness of those who make hatzolah and everything in it possible.

   Coby and our family would like very much to request from anyone who can,  to donate to Hatzolah in memory of Elimelech David Ben Dov Beryl HaCohen who imbued that exact character trait of hatzolah, saving lives. He put every ounce of energy and effort and love into his family, and into Klal Yisroel. He saved spiritual lives while Hatzolah saves physical lives so they can continue to leave footprints in the sand as they walk through life another day due to the quiet heroes that volunteer each day to save lives. Please help my son reach our goal of Raising $72,000 dollars this year before he turns 13. Each dollar that is given is a lesson to my children of others appreciation and kindness, of the importance to give and the knowledge that every dollar raised is a merit to his Abba who was instrumental in teaching him about appreciation, giving and the importance of every single life in this world.

Donations raised to date:
