Hi. My name is Avital.

I am getting married next week, and I have a painful secret: nothing is ready..

My parents both died of cancer within a year of each other when I was sixteen years old. They weren’t able to find a foster home for all four of my siblings and I, so we were split up to live in different dorms. In a short amount of time I went from a regular girl with a family, to being totally on my own, living with other orphans.

Now I am 20 years old, working as a cashier. I’ve learned to get by on my own. 

Baruch Hashem, now I am a kallah!! But making a wedding without any parents has been extremely hard.  I make decent money, and work long hours, but my minimum wage job hasn’t been enough to get me through this. I’ve been shocked to find that even the most basic expenses, such as a discounted hall or a used dress, are beyond my budget. My chassan and I need somewhere to go after the wedding, a simple apartment with simple furnishings. But with just days until my chuppah I must admit that we still don’t have anything.

I am so grateful that so many rabbanim, especially Chief Rabbi Shlomo Amar shlita,  who know my family and my story have written letters to show their support, and to explain that I truly do need help. You can see the letters below.

Please, if you can, do the mitzvah of hachnasas kallah and help me, a kallah who really and truly has nothing and no one. It would change my life forever. Thank you. Avital Altov
