Empowering Jewish Women

This smiley is happy by the unity and kindness brought about by
one Jew helping another
Increase the smiles in Shamayim by helping your fellow Jew, RIGHT NOW!

In recent times, people are talking more and more of recessions and difficulties.

The Lubavitcher Rebbe teaches that every Jew is connected to every other Jew in one body of Am Yisrael. The Rebbe teaches that the personal problems of each Jew are not private but directly affect the body of Am Yisrael as a whole. It is like in the body, if someone stubs his toe, the pain in the toe is related the function of the body as a whole. If someone has an upset stomach, that illness is not an isolated scenario but affects the function of the whole body.

For anyone who follows this blog and my husband's blog, we have a number of mitzvah projects on the go. Of concern is our recent realization of certain special older women who are at retirement age and yet their salaries do not come close to covering their monthly salaries. How would you feel to know you have worked hard all your life and suddenly a change in the world's economy, inflation and reduced recognition of the wisdom that comes with years of experience, results in ones hard earned salary just not covering basic expenses. Please, have compassion of them. It is not right for an older Jewish woman to have to resort to tea and toast for their main meal.

Please join us in helping these specific women. You can assist by either:

Making a monetary donation indicating it is to help these older women. Information regarding this can also be seen on our website, specifically the section to Help Someone in Need

Sponsoring an article that can be written by one or more of these women to provide for them another avenue of income.

Sponsoring an article written by either Shoshanah or Reb Eliyahu with a note that it is in the merit of these women so that your donation remains anonymous.

Purchasing any item from our online store. If you send a note in your order that you have seen this post, we will give 20% of the proceeds towards these women.

If you are a Jewish publication, publishing a press release of the work we are doing can assist to spread the word and bring in further assistance to the many causes we are working on.

If you would like to send a positive thought, word of inspiration or another idea, please either send it via the comment at the bottom of this post or email Shoshanah directly.

Thank you for your kindness and generosity!
