Hi, my name is Chana Haberman.
I should be happy and busy with a long list of prewedding prep for my wedding on 12 Av. Instead, I’m working long hours as a cashier in the grocery store down the block – taking on extra shifts, sometimes until minutes before Shabbos – to earn as much money as I can to help support my family.
I’m the 4th in a family of 10. My father is disabled and confined to a wheelchair. My mother works very hard taking care of a large family and working long hours. I try to help my parents financially as much as I can with the money I earn from working in the grocery.
With Hashem’s help I’m engaged to a wonderful person who is kind, and accepts me for who I am without yichus or money. My chassan is from a poor family who are not able to help us either. My wedding is coming up in less than a month and nothing is paid for. A local organization has donated an oven, fridge and washing machine – but that is all I have to start married life.
I have no way to provide a deposit to rent a wedding gown, to pay for the catering or anything else for the wedding. We found a small apartment but we can’t sign the contract without the first month’s rent. Even if we did sign, I have nothing to make it into a home – no sheets, towels, dishes…
I am turning to you to help me. Please help me. I have so little time, and my situation is so desperate. I have no idea what else to do. Please help a kallah who works hard to help her family, and is left with literally nothing to start her own life. Hashem should bless you with only, only good.
This Isn’t Just Charity,
