My  name wasn’t always Chana. I was born with a different name, in a poor suburb in America. My parents were unwell, and at one point we were even homeless. I knew, even then, there must be something more to life.

 

When I was 13 I started learning everything I could about Judaism. By the time I was 18, my dream came true: I finished my conversion. I came to Israel to learn more Torah. My parents disowned me. My father passed away. 

 

If you saw me on the street here you would think I was always a young Jewish girl. Baruch Hashem I began shidduchim last year, and have met a very special chassan. He is also a ger. We could not be happier: We will have the opportunity to start a home, and to Gd willing raise Jewish children.

 

One thing weighs on my mind, keeping me from happiness: My chassan and I are very poor. We do not have money to feed our wedding guests, or for any other essentials. We are starting our lives with nothing. I know that Hashem will protect us, and I am davening that with the help of Kupat Ha’Ir’s orphan wedding program, we will have a little bit of help.

 

Chana*

 

This is “Chana”’s story, but each of the 40 orphans getting married this month has a unique story. They all have one thing in common though: They have lost their parents, they are struggling, and they need our help.

 

As usual, the gedolim have put their trust and confidence in this special program. Rav Chaim Kanievsky, gadol hador, has given a powerful blessing to all who contribute here:

 

“Those who donate 400 shekel ($112) to the forty orphans who will be married in Cheshvan 5779, will merit, measure for measure, to make a simchah soon in their own homes.”

 

It is a very special bracha, for those who are longing to make a simcha, or who know someone who is. 40 children have experienced the pain of grief & poverty, and now they have the opportunity to have simcha. This is our chance to bring joy into their lives, and our own.

 

Please, join Rav Kanievsky in helping these orphans, and with Hashem’s help, bring bracha into your own life.

 

*Details have been changed to preserve the orphans’ privacy.
