“I’m Chavi. I’m the eldest in a big family. When I was 16, we lost my dad to cancer. Just a couple of years went by before mom got sick and passed away also. My mom's dying words were: "Take care of my babies." Suddenly, at 18, I became responsible for 7 younger siblings.

 I put myself through nursing school so that I’d have a better way of supporting us. I work the night shifts now so that I have more time to take care of the kids.  

Now that I’m engaged, I’m at a loss as to how I can afford the basics … that’s why I registered with Kupat Ha’Ir’s orphan wedding program.

They confirmed my details, and if they are able to raise money this month, my chassan and I will get some help. It would mean so much to us.” - Chavi, 20*

 

“I was at home … in tears. The wedding was coming in two days, and we didn’t have any money to pay for the hall. I was so scared we’d have to call the whole thing off. Then, there was a knock at the door. I opened it and it was a delivery man from Kupat Ha’Ir - with a check that helped pay for the hall. Thank you Hashem!! And thank you Kupat Ha’Ir!!!” - Shoshana, 22*

 

This month, 31 orphans living in poverty are getting married. Once again the gedolim have shown their support for Kupat Ha’Ir’s orphan wedding fund. Rav Shimon Galai released the following powerful statement:

“After I witnessed the sorrow of the orphans and the great aid that is provided to them, I hereby bless with my whole heart all of those who donate 310 shekel ($83) to the fund for the 31 orphans who are getting married in the month of Teves.

Just as they have gladdened the children of Hakadosh Boruch Hu, measure for measure, they will merit to raise their children and marry them off with nachas, happiness and health.”

-HaRav Shimon Galai shlit”a 

Funds go not only toward their wedding, but toward establishing their home after marriage. Our goal is to raise a total of $31,000 - one thousand dollars for each couple. For $1000, each couple can purchase (second hand):

An oven (lowest current second hand prices - 900 shekel / $239 )

A fridge (lowest current second hand prices - 800 shekel / $212 )

Beds (lowest current second hand prices - 1300 shekel - $345)

A full set of dishes (lowest current second hand prices - 700 shekel / $185 )

This is an amazing cause. Give now to join the gedolim, marry off these special young people, and receive Rav Galai's blessing for happy, healthy children.

Donations can also be made to Kupat Ha’Ir Foundation # 7101

*Details do not belong to any one particular orphan - they are the amalgam of multiple cases, intended to illustrate the pain of an orphan kallah.
