A message for the Jewish people from Rebbetzin Leah Kolodetsky, daughter of Rav Chaim Kanievsky shlit”a:

 

“Yehudim, rachmanim, bn’ei rachmanim, I am here the daughter of Rav Chaim Kanievsky with a special request from the Rav.

Baruch Hashem there is a family with a lot of kids to had the zechus of their daughter getting engaged. A family that is close to me, that truly lives with only the bare necessities, a family of big tzaddikim, very good people. Their daughter is engaged to a talmid chacham whose family also has many children.

In the name of the Rav, a special request: In a month they are getting married, and they haven’t been able to buy anything for the kallah. They simply don’t have.

Whoever can help should be blessed to not need help from anyone, to always be on the side of the giver, and whatever they do give they should have much more. And whoever gives from maaser, you should have large maaseros, parnassah b’shefa, hatzlocha with everything, and Gd should fulfill your wishes.”

 -Rebbetzin Leah Kolodetsky

Bracha is a special girl, from a special family. However, due to being one of many children, and truly living with the bare minimum of what they need, Bracha’s parents are unable to make a wedding for her, or give her any of the things that a kallah needs.

 

Her chassan, Yaakov, is also one of many children, in a modest family. They are both entering into the marriage with nothing.

 

Just one month remains until the wedding, and they are in a state of major distress.

 

Hachnasas kallah is an essential, and choshuve mitzvah. Often the stories are left vague. However in this case, Rebbetzin Kolodetsky is here to give a message and request from her father Rav Chaim Kanievsky himself, in order to stress three things:

 

That they personally stand for the integrity of these two special families

That they personally see their need and desperation as urgent and tragic

That they personally want to give their blessing to all who join in this important cause.

 

The message in the video above is clear: This is the place to give your maaser this month. Open your heart to two young people who desperately need our help, and you can say that today you were together with Rav Chaim Kanievsky and his daughter the Rebbetzin Leah Kolodetsky, in doing a huge mitzvah, and in bringing the blessing of the gedolim into your own home.
