Hachnasat Kallah - Help a New Jewish Home

  These are a few example items we give to new couples. Every Package is unique and different. In the items above the only cleaning product is dishwashing liquid. 

For those of you who are happily married, Bezrat Hashem Ad MeaVeEsrim, do you remember setting up your new home? Do you remember purchasing cleaning products, cleaning cloths, brushes, dustpan etc?

I remember a few days after I got married, my mother took me to a supermarket to purchase a range of cleaning products that I did not yet have for my new little home. It might have been a simple shopping trip, but nothing is superficial or mundane.

Some of the Chatanim and Kallot we assist do not have parents to take them shopping, or if there is a living father, perhaps the mother is already in the world of truth and the new Kallah has no-one to take her to purchase these all important items that every home requires in order to be clean and acceptable as a Bayit Ne'Eman. Yes some fathers can and do go shopping, but some leave giving advice on appropriate cleaning items to the woman of the home. When that woman or mother is missing, who will provide this advice or these items?

Today when we were doing some errands, I noticed a few specials on at a local supermarket for cleaning products.

The new year has just begun and already we have 6 new homes to assist. We do have some lovely items, but we do not yet have any cleaning products to give to needy Chatanim and Kallot. We budget at present 250 Shekkels per package for the cleaning products section. If more comes in, there are probably more crucial items we can provide to the new couples.

Please help us to continue this improtant work by making a donation either monetary or of any NEW item suitable to build a new Jewish home in Eretz Yisrael.

If you are a supplier of any Green Products, Eco Friendly and are willing and able to donate a few samples or products to include in our gift packages, pleasebe in touch either via our website or email us to

If you have a useful tip related to running your own home to share with a Kallah who does not have parents or family to offer this advice, please email it to us to pass on to the Kallot. 

Thank you for your kindness
