Tzipora Ehrman, one of the most popular Sheital machers, closed down her massive Instagram account.
In a message she wrote:
“I’m doing it for my family. I’m doing it for my entire family.
My dearest Jews all over the world. I don’t want to sit anymore and hope that some Jew somewhere will bring the Karban we all need so badly!!!
Instagram is my business space. It brought me hundreds of clients and tons of free PR.
But isn’t it Hashem who gives us the parnassah? Why would I think its been my work, my Instagram – gorgeous page.
It’s Hashem The same Hashem that took away all my business from this week and possibly next.
Thousands of dollars owed to me from clients who can’t get their wigs. I owe thousands to vendors and it’s sitting mid-air. But hey I have the best marketing skills.
I have an attractive Instagram page with zero work to show for myself.
Rabbanim ask us to sit at home and think about where this coronavirus has hit us.
In my own home I have a lot to work on and in my other home – my work – this is where I shall start.
Throwing away the Instagram famous page of “Tziporah Ehrman” and giving it up as a karban to Hashem.
And at this moment I am bawling my eyes out davening that maybe because this is the most heart wrenching, gut-wrenching thing for me to do that this karban is big enough to take away this virus from Klal Yisroel and bring Moshiach right away!!!
Heal those who are sick! Bench those who need parnassa!
Give Shalom Bayis to each and every home!
Give children to parents who are begging! Parents should have pure nachas from their children always!
My plea is I beg Hashem to continue to make me successful, to continue to have people trust me although they dont see it on Instagram.
I want customers who are loyal, customers who appreciate me. And not the hype.
I hope and I am sure Hashem can do that all, because he has been all this time.”
