My name is Esther HIlf Revivio. I am a former New Yorker, living in the Charedi community of Netivot, Israel.

People in Israel, especially young women before marriage, face tremendous financial challenges. In Israel, there is no custom of bridal showers. Young women from destitute homes find their forthcoming marriages to be periods of sadness rather than joy as they are helpless to set up even modest homes with basic necessities.

The Netivot Bridal Fund, aka gmach, which I launched in the year 2004 is unique in that it and I help brides from ALL sectors of society!!!

This year the gemach helped the third daughter of a mother who is an aguna (abandoned wife unable to secure a kosher divorce) and extremely ill as well. I provided the daughter’s ENTIRE dowry of sheets, pots, pans, towels, etc., spending at least $400 on her behalf as well as finding a dignified outfit for the mother (a friend came to their hovel to do alterations on the skirt, and  I do not use the word hovel lightly!).

A few months later I helped two former female soldiers from destitute homes, supplying each with $350-$400 worth of dowry items. Each received permission, at the end of their IDF workdays, to leave their bases at 5 p.m. and to work for cash as their home situations were in such dire financial straits.

I cannot recall the number of orphans whom the bridal gemach has helped this year. In such cases I try to get them a wedding gown on loan at no cost, as well as supplying more items than I do for other impoverished brides. A bride without a parent is needier than brides with parents who can pay for minimal necessities.

Hachnasat kallah is a precious mitzva.

Please open your hearts and your wallets. Donate generously to help me to assist these needy young women with housewares that every new wife needs. Some of these brides are too poor to study after finishing high school. They must work to help to support their families, which often have only one parent.

Help these young women to furnish their bedrooms and kitchens with a full-hearted sense of joy, true simcha, as they begin their married lives.

I thank you in advance for every penny you give to help in this endeavor!

May Hashem bless you! Tizku lamitzvot!
