Chofetz Chaim Kallah Fund, is a unique Tzedaka organization designed to
help needy Kallahs throughout our communities begin their new lives with
It all began about fifteen years ago with a phone call to the Rebbetzin about a young woman
in the community who was engaged to be married. "This is a young woman who has never
owned a new dress, who has never gone to a store to purchase a pair of shoes, who doesn't
know what it's like to have an article of clothing that belongs to her and isn't shared among
her siblings that she can take with her to her new home when she gets married next week, is
there anything we can do for her?" Using her experience as a shopper she quickly adopted
this young woman's cause. She whisked the grateful Kallah on a whirlwind shopping trip,
purchasing clothing for Shabbos and weekday, shoes, robes, coats, scarves, hair coverings
and personal items, outfitting her with dignity for her week of sheva brachos, her first year
of marriage, and beyond.
The Kallah, thinking her mother had arranged this trip and never realizing that she was the
beneficiary of Tzedaka, was overjoyed. Word spread, and she received a call about a second
Kallah, and then a third. The trickle turned into a flood, and today, the Kallah Fund works
with over 100 Kallah's a year. The Rebbetiz has arranged for donations and significant
discounts from sympathetic vendors and retailers, and is seeking equally kind and gracious
personal shoppers as assistants to deal with the overflow.
One Kallah shopping at Off Fifth, exclaimed at the beauty of the racks of clothing. "I've never
shopped in a store before," she said in awe. " Since I was a small child, my clothing has
always come from bags of donations. I feel like a princess heading into my wedding with all of
The Kallah Fund using its shoppers' experience and knowledge is proud that an entire clothing
trousseau is purchased for the least amount of money possible, high quality items purchased
at discount that retain their classic style and last for years. "With a relatively small
investment we are able to purchase all of a Kallah's needs, even more significantly, due to
the generosity and time of so many wonderful people, we are able to do so in a way where
the Kallah feels truly elevated.
What better hiddur can we give to the beautiful mitzvah of Hachnasas Kallah?"
