The daily difficulty experienced by a family who lost its father is unbearable. Their staff of support was broken, they lost their personal source of strength and in his place is a gaping hole whose presence is felt every day. We try to provide relief to the widow who is now carrying the full burden on her shoulders.
Due to a large range of social activities that L’ma’anchem initiated, many widows are feeling joy and relief instead of loneliness and grief. Summer camps, fun days, social get-togethers and special events give these women a chance to enjoy themselves in the company of those who know what it’s like and understand better than anyone what they are going through. The widows draw strength and recharge their batteries from these activities which helps them to bear their burden and care for their home and family.
