Hello,

 

My name is Chaya Sofer. Baruch Hashem! I am a kallah! But it has not all been smiles and celebration.

 

My father z”l passed away a few years ago. Left behind were my amazing mother, now a widow, and me & my 5 siblings. At first the pain was unbearable. But as time goes on, you learn to adapt and move on.

 

In fact we barely felt the grief for a long time, until I got engaged - then it came rushing back. Because we miss our father, because we wish he was here to be at my chuppah. But also because since he passed away my mother has struggled to support all of us kids on one paycheck. She already married off my older siblings.

 

We work as much as we can to chip in - but making a wedding right now seems impossible. If you are able to help at all, it would mean so much. The wedding is coming and we still need very important things like a simple, modest apartment to move into, chairs and a table, washing machine and dryer, towels and linens, rented dresses for my sisters for the chasuna, and more.

 

We say in the davening each morning that the mitzvah of hachnasas kallah bears fruit in this world and in the next. If you can help us I bless you that you should have health, joy, and parnassah in your life, and also see the benefits in the next world, for yourself and for your children, amen.

 

Thank you and tizku lmitzvos! A nervous kallah - Chaya
