The worst night of my life began with a police car parked outside my house. That night, I was informed that a car crash killed both of my parents. Ever since then I've been acting as both a Mom and a Dad to my younger sisters, ages 9 and 7. It's not easy. From the time I was only 16 I learned to be an adult. When things were hard I couldn't fall apart, there was no shoulder for me to lean on. 

Now I am engaged to be married. This is my chance to build my own home. The wedding date is looming closer and closer and I am so scared because I don't have the things that I need. Nothing for the wedding: no dress, no food, no hall. Nothing for life after the wedding either: no apartment, no fridge, no dishes. There is only one way for me to get married with at least part of my dignity intact. 

Each month Kupat Ha'ir has a special program for orphans who are getting married that month. They select the especially needy and poor orphans and provide for all the wedding expenses and secure for the orphans their financial future. 

Baruch Hashem, I have been chosen to be a part of this special program. I am one of thirty-five orphans participating in the program. Each of us has his or her own horrific story of tragedy. To spare us the pain and humiliation of publicly collecting to make our weddings, Kupat Ha'ir has chosen us to be a part of the Orphan Wedding Campaign for Chodesh Elul. 

Please, help me get married without any more embarassment or pain. Even though you don't see our faces each one of us is an orphan who is relying on you for help.  Please support the Kupat Ha'ir Orpham Wedding Campaign this Elul.  


Thank you,
Rochel*

Maran Rosh HaYeshivah Rav Gershon Edelstein shlita, one of the Gedolei HaDor, has taken responsibility for the 35 orphans that will get married this month with the help of Kupat Ha'ir.

Rav Gershon Edelstein shlita has endorsed the Orphan Wedding Campaign for Elul with a powerful blessing: Those who donate to marry off the 35 orphans of Elul will merit a good year, and they will see blessing measure for measure. Don't miss out on the brachah from a Gadol b'Yisroel right before the Day of Judgement!

Donations can also be made to Kupat Ha'ir fund #7075. 

*Rochel's story is symbolic, each one of the 35 orphans getting married this Elul can identify with it.
