A 65-year-old woman in Afula, Israel, cleaning her home for Pesach discovered a forgotten lottery ticket that turned out to be worth 7 million shekels, or about $1.8 million.
Kol Haolam reports that the woman had purchased the ticket a month ago but then forgot about it. When one of her sons checked the numbers last week, he discovered that she had indeed won the grand prize.
The woman has a large family and a lot of debt. She plans to pay off the debt, distribute money to her family members and continue her volunteer work with the elderly.
