"I was just a kid when we lost my parents. It was painful learning to live without them, becoming responsible for myself and siblings. Now that I'm engaged it has gotten much more difficult.

 My friends urged me to apply to the Kupat Ha’Ir orphan wedding program - it’s for people like me who are missing their parents, and need help to cover the basic needs of making a chasuna.

If this campaign succeeds, I’ll be able to cover some expenses my parents would help me with, if they were here.

We need the help so badly. And will be so grateful if you can help! I will pray for you under my chuppah.” Keila*, 20

"Keila,” and others like her, are getting married this month, and relying on the help of Kupat Ha’Ir to make their situation less painful. Rav Shimon Galai shlit”a has written the following powerful statement on their behalf:

“All donors who give 360 shekel ($101) for the 36 orphans getting married in Sivan should merit, midah k’neged midah (measure for measure), to see all of their children go in the way of Torah, and should be blessed with nachas from them.” - Rav Shimon Galai

This is a particularly moving bracha in light of the many challenges that parents undergo raising their children in today's world. 

The goal of this campaign is to raise $1,000, a modest yet significant sum, for each of the 36 couples. This money goes toward unavoidable expenses - making a simple wedding, sheva brachos, household supplies, and other essentials.

There are only a few hours left to help the 36 orphans getting married in Sivan, and to receive the special brachah of Rav Shimon Galai shlita for nachas from your children.

Together, with your help, we can reach this goal and make a difference in these special young peoples' lives.

*Details have been changed to protect the privacy of the orphans. Each of the individuals has their own unique story of loss. The above story is a window into what one’s experience could be.

Donations can also be made to Kupat Ha'Ir Foundation # 7131, by phone at 1-888-587-2842, or by mailing a check to American Friends of Kupat Ha'ir, 4415 14th Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11219
