“I never knew my mother, she died when I was only a baby. Tatty was the one who raised me all on his own. He was the person I relied on most in the world. Just 4 months ago, Tatty was niftar – only two weeks after I got engaged! Now, I am getting married with no way to afford a wedding or anything for married life. I feel so alone and helpless.” – Shaindy
Shaindy is one of 73 orphans getting married this summer, who have turned to Vaad Harabanim desperate for financial assistance to get married. A letter from the rabbanim:
The stories of 73 orphan weddings who are about to get married without anything have come before us.
Therefore we asked from Vaad Harabanim L’Inyanei Tzedakah in Eretz Yisroel to start a fund for the necessary marriage expenses, and it’s a great mitzvah to make these broken hearts happy on the day of their wedding. We request of each person to participate with a generous eye in the marriage of these orphans.
It should be His will that you merit nachas from all your descendants, and your sons should succeed in yeshiva to grow in Torah and fear of Heaven. They should be saved from any sorrows and illness. You should make a simcha in your home soon with plentiful parnassah easily.
