Have you ever seen a bride-to-be in a housewares store?
You can spot her pretty easily-the smile on her face, the excitement in her eyes as she wanders from aisle to aisle with her long list, picking and choosing which items she’d like for the new home she and her husband are about to create. By the time she’s done, she’s happily chosen bedding, towels, dishes, kitchen supplies and lots of other things they’ll soon need.
For a bride-to-be who comes from an impoverished background, her list is usually short, if there's even a list at all. She and her family will have enough trouble trying to figure out how to pay for her wedding, let alone outfit a new home afterwards. What should be a fun planning experience is instead, discouraging and sad.
Our Kol Kallah - Lev Georgie Fund L'Zecher Nishmas Mrs. Georgie Schorr A’H was established to help fill in some of the list.Gift vouchers provided through the program enable these women to go shopping so they, too can purchase new, crucial items for their homes.
But they do even more than that.
They give them a sense of excitement and anticipation, helping them feel just a bit like everyone else. Donate to Israel's neediest brides through the Kol Kallah - Lev Georgie Fund and through your hachnosas kallah, bring dignity, happiness, a smile and some sparkle to their lives.
Donations can be made in honor of a friend or relative who is hoping to get married. In return, the recipient kallah will pray for her on the wedding day. Our Kol Kallah brides are happy and eager to be able to pay it forward. Contact us for more details.
Two thousand brides-to-be are helped yearly through this program
With impoverished kids stuck at home, leaving parents unable to go to work, the loss of income makes an already difficult situation even worse. No money to buy food or pay the electric bill makes summer unbearable. We can bring relief.
Since 1989, we have been privileged to help create happy holiday memories for some 8,000 poor families by discretely distributing vouchers for chicken, meat, and other foodstuffs as well as clothing and shoes.
