HORRIFYING: The community of Sanhedria Murchevet is slowly recovering from the shock of losing beloved community member and father of two Chaim Yakovson. Resources say that Chaim had taken his two only children to the park on Sunday afternoon and the three returned home together in good spirits. After bidding his children good night, Yaakov ate dinner with his wife Chana and went to learn in his Yeshiva's nightly learning program. It was only the morning after that Chana discovered the horrible tragedy that befell upon her family; Her husband of only eighteen years had died in his sleep.

Chaim was always a healthy man and the family of four was very close. He leaves behind a 38 year old widow and two heartbroken young orphans, the youngest being only 3 years old.

“This Passover, we sang together for hours with our two little girls. You taught Sari all about leaving Egypt while you lovingly held Michali on your lap,” writes Chana.

“How will I raise our two precious daughters without my life partner? How will I take care of them on my own, and provide for them, and pay for their weddings one day? Michali is only 3. I can’t believe that I am a widow, and my children are heartbroken orphans. We are alone now, and we are so, so scared. Please, please help if you can. We need your help to survive.”

Chana’s income is not enough on its own to support the family and after this unforeseen tragedy she and her daughters have a long and difficult road ahead of them, one that they will walk for many years alone. Donations are being collected here to give this young widow the peace of mind that her young children won't go hungry as she processes her difficult new reality.
