Raisa lives all alone in Israel. Originally from the former Soviet Union, she now lives in southern Israel in a tiny home that is often dark and airless as it's too expensive to use the electricity for lights or a fan. Raisa was widowed just a few months ago and in addition to her grief, she is worried about her daughter, who lives in Ukraine.
Rabbi Eckstein recently visited Raisa to deliver food as well as a wheeled shopping cart that will make future trips to the market so much easier for her to navigate. She was so appreciative for the needed gifts – and for the cherished moments of companionship.
