PSA: "I felt I was stealing groceries". Lema'an Achai - Kimche Depischa

'Rivka Cohen' was explaining how she felt about her family's finances.

"Our debts were mounting, we owed so many people money, and I knew we couldn't ever pay them back. It was a nightmare, with no end."

Rivka's story of that nightmare, the overwhelming debts, the resulting family crises, legal suits, and depression, included one passing detail about how even a simple trip to the local store was traumatic.

"When I went shopping for food, I felt like a thief in the night. Even putting basic foods, bread, milk, vegetables, a chicken, into my cart.

"How could I be buying this stuff - buying anything - when we owed the money I was spending? I felt that these are stolen goods."

Together with Lema'an Achai's financial counselors, the Cohens gradually addressed their financial problems, reduced their debts, increased revenue, and learned to budget their daily expenses.

"We now have a budget for regular debt repayments, agreed with all the creditors, and therefore we also have a realistic budget for what we can spend for the family.

"This Pesach for the first time in five years, I bought our family's groceries with a clear conscience.

"This Pesach, we felt freed from the burden of debt and financial chaos; we see we've got process and order in our finances and, even more than that, we have regained control of our lives.

"Thank you Lema'an Achai".
