Last Thursday night, the Beit Shemesh community was shaken by the tragic loss of 39-year-old Mrs. Malka Kreuzer, a mother of seven. Mrs. Kreuzer suffered from a serious case of cancer which caused her to deteriorate rapidly over the course of less than half a year. Before falling sick she had been a beloved preschool teacher. Her husband Rabbi Kreuzer is the head of a local yeshiva.

The Kreuzers had hoped desperately to reunite as a family one last time, at the upcoming wedding of their eldest daughter. Mother and daughter were extremely close and Mrs. Kreuzer was ecstatic to see her child engaged and to participate, as far as she was able, in the wedding preparations. Tragically, just a week and a half before the wedding, she passed away. Seven children were devastated by the loss of their mother. The youngest Kreuzer child is only two years old.

An emergency fund has been opened to help the family cover basic expenses as well as debts incurred due to the mother's illness. In addition to the pain of mourning, they also are desperately impoverished. The family considered postponing the modest wedding planned until "easier times," but given that no such times are on the horizon, they decided against it, as seeing her daughter’s dream of establishing her own home realized would have been what Mrs. Kreizer would have wanted above all.
