Getting married and hosting a wedding is an exciting, momentous event in anyone’s life. But it can also be a huge expense.
While most families are able to find a way to manage that expense, poor families in Israel often just can’t bear it. And an occasion that should be one of great happiness and excitement becomes marred by disappointment and anxiety over mounting bills.
But Yad Eliezer’s Gitty Perkowski Adopt-a-Wedding Program changes that.
Our program invites Jewish couples from around the world to share the joy of their happy occasion by sponsoring the wedding of a poor couple in Israel on the same date as their own. Not getting married right now? You can still bring joy to couples in need by sponsoring their wedding. Dates can be chosen from the Yad Eliezer Wedding Calendar, and sponsorships can be made in the merit of a refuah shleima, in honor of an anniversary or yartzheit, or for a myriad of other events and purposes. Giving tzedaka to this program is the perfect way to do the incredible mitzvah of hachnosas kallah.
Yad Eliezer’s simple but elegant weddings welcome up to four hundred dinner guests and even larger groups for reception and dancing. Our partnerships with simcha halls enable us to keep wedding expenses at a minimum, with highly subsidized food and service costs. Over 15,000 weddings have been sponsored to date!
Your very generous donation to our Adopt-A-Wedding program will make a real difference in the lives of so many. You will be replacing their worry and concern over wedding expenses, with happiness, excitement, and great relief. Imagine their joy as they reach their chuppah,
able to fully celebrate one of the biggest moments of their lives.
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.
While we celebrate the Holidays, IDF soldiers defend us on the front lines. Some of them live in poverty and cannot afford proper holiday meals. Let’s not forget them. Let's give them a taste of the holidays!
