(Cleveland Jewish News)
Five-year-old twins Eli and Nachi Ribakow entered the world 14 weeks premature and spent the first five months of their lives in a Jerusalem hospital, where their father, Dovid, was studying at the Mir yeshiva. They’ve endured numerous hospitalizations and surgeries. Yet, it’s the everyday, the mundane that is most difficult for them and their parents at times.
Neither can walk on their own, instead using a combination of walkers and motorized wheelchairs to get around their University Heights home. With only a half-bathroom and no bedrooms on the first floor, their parents, Dovid and Racheli, end up carrying them up and down the stairs, although Nachi sometimes can make it on his own – slowly.
