Miklat at Work
January 10, 2014
A couple of weeks ago, I desperately had to find a lawyer to help me deal with financial and marital distress. I was flabbergasted when I walked into [Miklat’s] offices and was welcomed like the most important person in the world.
Then I met Oshrit Broyer-Tepper who very kindly took her time to explain the different procedures. She made sure that if I was not fluent enough in Hebrew, she would translate in English, which is a plus. Oshrit sent me home advising me to process the information she had given me and to take my time. This was extremely helpful and gave me extra self-confidence. I did appreciate her punctuality, her professional advice, her personal approach to the situation without forcing me into any commitment. She has been kind enough to give me her email address and telephone, so I could reach her at my convenience and was also willing to talk to the yoetz who is helping me in my endeavor. Without the help of Miklat, I would never have been able to "fight" for my rights. I could never have afforded the fees of a lawyer. Oshrit is genuine and has so much integrity. I trust her for the most difficult decision in my life and I know that I can count on her dedication, which goes beyond the call of duty. Thank you Emunah for giving me the professional and emotional help without paying anything. I hope that in the future I will be able to be on the other side of the desk and able to give a donation for such a cause.
Before this partnership was established, many abused women were stuck in the welfare system or lost in the legal system. Miklat now guides them through the complex and challenging legal aspects of their dire marital circumstances, from divorce decrees, alimony, child support, mediation and reconciliation. This work is important, productive and ongoing. (See the latest quarterly report by Miklat’s Director.) It does, however, require your continued financial support. We rely on our generous donors to help these women and their children get back on their feet and lead productive and happy lives again. Please help us provide these vital services to the victims of domestic violence in Israel.
