After the Wedding, What Do Impoverished Brides Come Home To?
Imagine the girl who spends the weeks of her engagement crying, worrying, and longing for the necessities she cannot buy.
Many brides in Israel face their wedding day with the knowledge that when they come home from the party, they will face an apartment bare of even the most basic amenities for normal living: sheets, towels, soap, pots, broom and dustpan. Certainly there is no money left over for more personal items. How is the new couple supposed to start off on the right foot if there is no way to clean the house or make supper?
We take things like table cloths, pillows, dishes, and cutlery for granted, but the impoverished of Israel can not. Neither can Yad Eliezer.
Yad Eliezer's Solution
Bridal Vouchers for Over 250 Brides Every Year
Yad Eliezer has partnered with the Yad Gittel discount houseware store and the Birkat Rachel Fund to provide Israel's impoverished brides and grooms with their needs to begin a home. Your charity dollar goes further as poor brides are provided with Yad Eliezer Kol Kallah vouchers to be redeemed for store items at nearly cost price. Though some 250 couples received vouchers this year, countless impoverished brides and grooms must be turned away due to limited funding for this program. Your donations can change that for them.
Contributing to the Kol Kallah Bridal Fund means more than giving a young couple houseware and linens: you have given them the opportunity to begin a new home together with joy and excitement. The Yad Eliezer bride is one who has grown up in poverty. Can you see her smile as she arranges the pretty dishes she has chosen in her cupboard?
What is unique about Kol Kallah is that your donation may be made in honor of a single friend or relative, and in return, the recipient will pray for your friend on her wedding day. Our Kol Kallah brides are only too happy to be able to give something back to their donors and often start praying for their single friends immediately upon receiving their names. Some brides even call the Yad Eliezer office inquiring as to whether or not ‘their single friend’ for whom they prayed has gotten engaged!
