“When I was a baby, my parents abandoned me in the stairwell of an apartment building. I know in my heart that it was a blessing: I was adopted by the most amazing parents in the world. My mom and dad raised me as if I were their own, and I missed nothing in childhood. When they died in a car crash, I felt as if I had lost my real family, because I had. Now that I am getting married I’m shocked by all the little inevitable expenses and how they add up. I had thought that I could pull it off on my own with just my simple job, but now it seems impossible.

 

My friends urged me to apply to the Kupat Ha’Ir orphan wedding program - it’s for people like me who are missing their parents, and need help to cover the basic needs of making a chasuna. If this campaign succeeds, I’ll be able to get a dress, an oven for my new apartment, all sorts of things my parents would help me with, if they were here.” Keila*, 20

Keila,” and 35 others like her, are getting married this month, and relying on the help of Kupat Ha’Ir to make their situation less painful. Rav Shimon Galai shlit”a has written the following powerful statement on their behalf:

“All donors who give 360 shekel ($101) for the 36 orphans getting married in Sivan should merit, midah k’neged midah (measure for measure), to see all of their children go in the way of Torah, and should be blessed with nachas from them.” - Rav Shimon Galai

 

The goal of this campaign is to raise $1,000, a modest yet significant sum, for each of the 36 couples. This money would go toward making a simple wedding, sheva brachos, household supplies, and other essentials. Together, with your help, we can reach this goal and make a difference in these special young peoples' lives.

*Details have been changed to protect the privacy of the orphans. Each of the individuals has their own unique story of loss. The above story is a window into what one’s experience could be.

Donations can also be made to Kupat Ha'Ir Foundation # 7131, by phone at 1-888-587-2842, or by mailing a check to American Friends of Kupat Ha'ir, 4415 14th Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11219
