Helen Freedman paid a visit to Yael Shevach, the widow of Rabbi Raziel Shevach, who was killed on the road outside Havat Gilad just a week ago. Yael is an amazing woman, filled with beauty and courage. In addition to raising her six children, she is also a teacher at an Ulpana.
This trip also included a meeting with Ilana Shimoni, the spokeswoman for the Havat Gilad community. Along with Yael, Ilana, is a driving force for the mikveh which is desperately needed by the women of the community.
Anyone interested in helping should write to Ilana.
