Helping Needy Kallot in Israel


We are still collecting for the Orphan Kallah mentioned in the previous post. In the meantime we do have some lovely gifts to give to needy Kallot.

Some readers ask "is Hachnasat Kallah a Mitzvah?" The answer is "yes, it is a very big Mitzvah, so much so that it is mentioned in our morning Brachos." Our Bayit Chadash Gemach is all about assisting needy Kallot in developing their new home.

We like movement of the gifts that are donated. Money, donations and gifts are supposed to move on to the place where they belong, not to sit stored for ages. So, while the Kallah referred to above is a special case requiring extra assistance, we do have more items to give to other Kallot.

We have some lovely new hats, still with their labels on. Eco Friendly lipsticks and liners by Lori. We have a new clock, some seforim, photo frames, Challah covers and much more.
  • If you would like to join this wonderful Mitzvah, please email us regarding donating.
  • If you are a new Kallah or know a new Kallah, please be in touch too.

Please NOTE: We ONLY assist Kallot marrying and setting up their home in Eretz Yisrael and who are Torah observant.

Preference is given to Orphans first, Baalei Teshuvah with no family support second, next Olim and Talmidei Chachamim with no support and assistance. After this we will consider other Chatanim and Kallot.

Please note, we do not assist with the wedding itself, but rather with setting up the new home, the Bayit Chadash. Kallot do need two letters of reference from recognized Orthodox rabbis who know the Kallah and Chatan and their situation.

For enquiries or to make an appointment, please email us.

We look forward to hearing from you

Shoshanah
