No one tells the story of Lema'an Achai better than our (former) client/families
And The Winner Is....
A Year Has Passed
To the Lema'an Achai family,
A year has passed since I first met your organization…
After my divorce I found myself so alone, faced with a difficult reality. Financially alone, with the children alone, alone with a broken refrigerator, a broken washing machine, and many many more challenges. Then a friend told me about the organization named "Lema'an Achai". For me it is less an organization and more like a huge family of amazing people who are always there to help! Any time I turn to them I find an attentive ear that demonstrates a willingness to help, and I know that they are always there with a friendly face and a huge heart.
So I just wanted to say a few words of thanks to the management that I have not met ... Show More
I am Making It!
I wanted to write and tell you how much I appreciate all Lema'an Achai have done for me and my family . From financial advise and support from Matti, help with navigating Bituach Leumi from Meir, support and emotional help in the form of counselling, and guidance from your lovely social worker, Purim and Pesach gifts, and even free legal advise... the list is endless. My children for the second year are enjoying their time with the "big brother or sister" that Lema'an Achai has provided.
It took all of this and probably more to help me leave my difficult marriage and work out how to begin again as a single parent. Being without family in Israel, Lema'an Achai has given that sense of family, helping me along the way. Each expert was vital in providing information that helped me make the right choices. The advise continues today, and I ... Show More
Learning to Help Ourselves
Your Best ROI
My participation had an incredible Return On Investment (ROI).
The person who delivered the lecture was amazing. He was successful in taking the home budget and breaking it down to into a number of easy to understand components.
Now for the best part: I was able to take action and lower my monthly expenses immediately. It was just a matter of a few phone calls and I was already saving money. Of course, managing a home budget is a never-ending story. Leman Achai gave me the tools to step up to the challenge, take responsibility and take control of my budget.
Lemaan Achai means Smart Chesed. Smart Chesed, indeed.
Thank You so much for helping me this year.
"At Rosh Hashana May your family share the blessing of peace and love"
שנה טובה ומתוקה
To get back on my feet with dignity
I feel you are always there for me.
Hashem should repay you in every single way.
Special blessings to Devorah. A huge thank you!
A Whole New Life
I have come to know and to appreciate Lema'an Achai well in the past years. In my four year Agunah fight to receive my "Get" (Jewish Divorce), Lema'an Achai has been there all along. Whether it be coming with me to the courts and lawyers or providing much needed social care here at home, they have helped me rebuilt the backbone that was almost destroyed. Lema'an Achai has helped me stand on my feet once again.
As a now single mother of two, ... Show More
Matti- Budgeting-what we have gained
I am so grateful that we heard about Matti and were introduced to him and his budgeting system. First I just want to say, Matti is super nice-you can ask the same question many times and you won’t feel dumb.
On a simple level, just having your finances organized and being on top of everything, you will catch mistakes, like when phone or internet companies steal from you by charging you for extra things you never signed up for..etc. You will catch mistakes like your car insurance expiring and accidentally not being renewed..
Once we organized our monthly expenses and we saw our deficit as a clear number, it was motivating to try and get rid of the deficit, once you see it clearly, it seems more doable than just thinking “ah we have no money what’s gonna be!”
Another thing that made a big difference, ... Show More
נתינה מכל הלב
בת מצווה שלא ישכח לעולם
חיים לגמרי חדשים
כשהגעתי להבנה שאני לקראת גירושין לא היה לי קל. למרות תהליך טיפולי שעברתי במשך שנים התמלאתי ברגשות אשמה.
במשך ארבע שנים בהם הייתי מסורבת גט למען אחי תמכו בי וליוו אותי צעד אחרי צעד. הועצמתי מאוד מהקשר עם למען אחי. תחושה זו ליוותה אותי בדיונים שהתקיימו בבתי משפט ומול עורכי דין. הם סייעו לי לבנות מחדש את הביטחון העצמי שנירמס ולעמוד על רגלי.
כאם חד הורית לשני ילדים, כשאחד מהם בעל צרכים מיוחדים נתקלתי בקשיים כלכלים. ניסיתי להתקיים מהזכויות שניתנו לי על ידי המדינה אך זה לא היה קל. בכדי להקל על מצבי הכלכלי קיבלתי תלושי מזון חודשיים מלמען אחי וסלי מזון לקראת חגים.
למען אחי בדרכם המיוחדת סיפקו לי רשת תמיכה נרחבת. סייעו לי במימוש זכויותי מול משרדי הממשלה, הושיטו יד בזמני משבר, כל הזמן עמדו לצידי בעודם שואלים מה עוד ניתן לעשות עבורך.
ברצוני לתאר מספר תחומים ... Show More
