Clarification

Just a little light on the subject can make a world of difference

In working on our Bayit Chadash Project, we stipulate that items donate must be new so as to bring JOY to the new Chatan and Kallah.

Some have decided that this is a great opportunity to let go of old chairs, items that are hefker, opened and broken. This is not the object of the Project. Please take a look at our website for clarity. There are Gmachim who do accept second hand items in good condition to be given to families in need.

This project is specifically geared to give a gift package of various items that are brand new to Chatan and Kallah.

To make a contribution, please either make a monetary donation via the donate button right here, or be in touch with us for donating new items.

Regarding our Upcoming Women's Event, some have asked why we cant work on a cheaper venue and cancel those women are have any form of disability. Is this how you would like to be treated?

Having worked for 19 years as an Occupational Therapist, it is quite clear that illness, disability and other challenges can happen to anyone of us at any stage of our lives. How would you like to feel if you suddenly found yourself with a debilitating illness, an injury or other physical or other difficulty and you were excluded from an event aimed at Uniting Jewish Women due to an accessibility consideration.

It seems to me that this attitude defeats the aim of the event which is to increase Ahavas Yisrael, respect amongst women and unity with Jewish women.

We would like to hear from you. What are your thoughts on the topic. How would you feel if you or a friend or loved on really wanted to attend the event but found there was a problem with accessing the venue. Perhaps the person is on crutches or has another mobility problem or is in a wheelchair. Why should they be prevented from coming?
