“In a way, Rivky* became a mom at 14. When a bus crash took her parents away, she became responsible for her younger siblings. They moved from relative’s house to relative’s house, always in search of a place that could house them together. She held her baby brother in her arms, rocking him to sleep, knowing that she could never be what she wanted: Her mother.

 

And in those moments, she longed for her mother also.

 

Now 20 years old, Rivky is still the picture of maturity. Working long hours in an office, she struggles to pay rent. She has her younger siblings over for quiet shabbat meals, where her younger brother makes kiddush. Rivky has found the boy she wants to marry, but she knows she could never afford even a simple wedding, or a place for them to live after marriage.

 

Neighbors wonder if she will have to call off the wedding.“



This is one orphan’s story, but each person’s loss is unique. This month, 26 people have been hand-selected by Kupat Ha’Ir’s staff as exceptionally needy. These 26 people have lost their parents, and are struggling to start their lives on their own without a mother & father’s loving help.

 

They will walk to the chuppah without their parents on their arm. They will start their new life without their parents there to guide them. But if you participate in this special program, you will be able to step in to fill that void. Together, we can be the parents that they need during this vulnerable time.

 

As usual, the gedolim have put their trust and confidence in this special program. Rav Shimon Galai shlit”a, talmid chacham, tzaddik and one of the true spiritual leaders of klal yisroel, has taken responsibility for these 26 special people.

 

Rav Galai has issued a powerful statement: Those who give to help these desperate people who are relying on us for help, should bez”H receive, midah k’neged midah, hatzlocha in marrying off their own children, with simcha & happiness. To all those praying for the futures of their own children, this is a beautiful cause and a great investment.

 

Rav Galai will also travel personally to the kever of Rav Shteinman zt”l on his shloshim with a special list -- the names of all those who give $130, just $5 for each orphan, to this campaign. At the grave of the recently passed gadol haDor he will pray for each donor’s happiness, health, and success.

 

This campaign will only be live for a short time -- do not miss this opportunity to join Rav Galai shlit”a in marrying off people who desperately need our help. Give to this special and important cause and receive the Rav’s blessing and prayers for yours and your childrens’ futures.

 

*Details have been changed to preserve the orphans’ privacy. However, the heart of “Rivky”’s loss is something each of Kupat Ha’Ir’s orphans can relate to.
