Just before Pesach two years ago a light fixture in our living room exploded. The fire quickly caught and spread all over the house. Baruch Hashem, no one in my family was hurt but there was nothing left of all our possessions. 

My father went into debt finding our large family a place to live, clothes to wear and food to eat. He was in over $300,000 of debt. My father is still struggling to pay off this enormous debt over two years later.  

I am the fifth child in our family, and now I became a chosson. 

I don't know what to do. I want to get married and build my own home but I don't want the extra financial burden to fall on my father's shoulders. He already is so overwhelmed and stressed because of his existing debts. 
My kallah is the eleventh of 18 children, their family has nothing to give either. 

I am so embarassed as there is nothing ready for the wedding, no food, no hall. I don't even have a ring for my kallah. Where will we live after the wedding? How will we furnish the house? I don't have answers to any of these questions.

My older brother, Chaim Yitzchok, is speaking on my behalf in the video. I am just too ashamed to tell my story in public. 

Please open your hearts and help me get married without any more embarassment or pain. My father and mother desperately want to help me like all parents do, but they have no money to help. If you would help you would literally be saving me and building a new Jewish home. 

Thank you,
M. Breitstein
