“And his name in Israel shall be..Moshe Chaim!”

Zahava’s wrinkled face was soaked with tears as hearty "Mazal Tov"s erupted into the air.

Tears mixed with joyous laughter as she received warm and emotional embraces from sisters, cousins, nieces, and friends. Zahava looked around the synogogue in disbelief. There was not a single dry eye in the room.

Someone then called her over to the hallway where her little bundle was handed back to her. As she held Moishy close to her chest, she shut her eyes for the briefest of moments. Zahava felt the baby’s warm, tiny body snuggled safely in her arms.

The baby. Her baby.

Everything felt so right.

That was six years ago. As Zahava sat in the frigid hospital waiting room, the vivid memory of Moishy’s circumcision kept coming back to torment her.

When Moishy was healthy. When her life felt like it was finally, finally complete.

She had undergone painful IVF treatments for over twenty years, and in that moment, she knew that it was all worth it.

“Excuse me, Mrs. Kirschenbaum...Can I have a quick word?”

Dr. Sinai’s thick Israeli accent* jolted her back into the present.

“Moishy’s results have come back. I’m sorry to say, but his situation is getting worse. I’d strongly, strongly recommend you pay for the treatments we previously discussed. I know your funds are tight right now, but maybe you can take out a loan. We are talking about life or death.”

No, no, no. This can’t be happening.

“Please..There must be something you can do. My husband went to every bank in the country. Not a single one of them will give us a loan. Please, I- I’m begging of you! Please help us!”

“I am sorry. I really am. I wish I could do more.”

Unfortunately, Zahava Kirschenbaum’s begging fell on death ears. Her precious only child was battling a severe form of cancer, and though she and her husband were trying everything in their power to come up with the money in time, they came out empty-handed. As the days passed, the pit of dread in her stomach grew heavier.

Then, Darchei Miriam came in. The non-profit Israeli organization launched an emergency fundraiser to help the Kirschenbaums save their six year old son’s life and are doing everything in their power to reach enough donations in time.

Zahava and her husband waited twenty years to have a child. And now, they’re about to lose him forever. Click here to help.
