More On Family Breakdowns


Rebbetzin Esther Jungreis

I did not give up. I e-mailed her. She did not respond. I sent her text messages. She ignored them. I spoke to my siblings and asked them to intercede but that turned out to be another disaster because they joined her. There was money involved and greed took over. I went to third parties and asked them to get involved but that too was futile. In desperation I approached the rabbi in her community and asked for his help. He informed me that he hardly knew her but he’d be happy to try. Predictably, she would not communicate with him.

Today my situation is unbearable. I have been forced to hire attorneys. The amount I have spent on legal fees is beyond words. But it’s not only money that’s at stake. My life and the lives of my wife and children are on the line as well. My mother is pursuing me relentlessly. My lawyers have tried to make a deal with her attorneys but they refused. My mother’s venom is such that she couldn’t care less if I ended up in jail. It is not only the lawsuit that is torturing me but the cruelty of my mother and the callousness of my siblings. It is apparent they are all ready to kill for the almighty dollar and it’s me – their son and brother – they are all willing to destroy.

I really do not know how you can help me. This is not a problem for which there are easy solutions. It is only my mother who could change the situation by removing this albatross from around my neck. Nevertheless, I am writing to you to ask for your prayers and that you please share my letter with your readers. Perhaps my mother will see it and realize how heinous, how horrific, this family tragedy is.
