A new monthly publication sets a goal of fostering a sense of community amongst frum children from divorced homes, entertaining, inspiring, and providing advice for children who are in a situation unlike so many of their peers.
The schoolyard is filled with children, but Chaim sits away, slightly apart from everyone else. His back is to the fence, his eyes to his classmates. He feels so different. So dissimilar. Everyone else has a “whole” home, while his house is divided in two. Today he’ll be going home with his father. Tomorrow he’ll be going home with his mother. How can he join everyone else’s’ game, and pretend to be one of the chevreh, when deep down he knows he’s not?
Eleven-year-old Rivky is a happy and well-adjusted child. She loves to draw and bake and can exchange jokes with the best of them. Underneath the surface though, something is lurking. It’s an emotion bigger than she is. It’s like a part of her is missing and she doesn’t know why. But really, she sometimes thinks, is that feeling and wonder if her last instance of communication with her father took place when she was three?
