The Shlezingers are a family with nine children who currently reside in Jerusalem. When Mrs. Shlezinger was expecting the youngest three children, who are triplets, she received a horrifying diagnosis: Cancer.

Mrs. Shlezinger gave birth to the triplets prematurely and tragically, she passed away one month later, leaving six children and three newborns without their mother.

Her husband Dovid looks back at the dark memories: He had to deal with such a painful loss, while still taking care of six children and three newborns. Though at some moments he thought he would break, with Hashem’s help, he somehow survived and today, he and his children are a tight unit. Though finances have been minimal, they get by on very little, according to Dovid,

Esti Shlezinger, the sixth child in the family, was only two when her mother passed away. Though she spent many nights living by aunts and neighbors and life was a blur, she remembers her mother:

"My younger sisters never received one hug or kiss from her. But I was lucky enough to feel her love, to remember it, for the first two years of my life.”

Despite her challenging life, Esti has grown to be a capable and pleasant young lady who always looks to see the positive in the challenges that she faces. Recently she became a glowing bride, and openly discussed her childhood wounds with the public:

“I cannot ask my father for anything. He has so much on his plate, and being a single father has taken a heavy toll on our finances. I beg of you and ask: Help me get married like everyone else, and the father of all orphans will keep his promise: “If you gladden Mine, I will gladden yours.”

Funds are being collected to help Esti make a simple wedding and start a simple life with her groom. Right now, she is starting with nothing, and every donation makes a tremendous difference. Click here to donate towards Esti Shlezinger’s Hachnasat Kallah Fund.
