[COMMUNICATED] When a kallah gets engaged the entire family is enveloped in a wave of simcha and excitement. Yet, it doesn’t take long for the financial realities to set in: besides for the cost of the actual wedding, the cost of setting up a new home can be prohibitive. There are many local families who simply cannot afford these basic necessities. The financial and emotional burden of the overwhelming challenge of covering these expenses can completely undermine the atmosphere of simcha at what should be a very joyous time.
Tiferes Devorah L’Kallah has been the silent partner by LAYING THE FOUNDATION of the homes of many kallahs in the Lakewood community. By helping to alleviate the financial burden associated with setting up a new home they are ensuring that the engagement period and wedding are a time devoid of financial stress and worry.
TDL’s kallah packages are remarkably comprehensive, including two sets of bedding and linen, towels, a full array of small appliances, dishes, flatware, tablecloth, dinette set, sheva brochos clothing vouchers for the kallah and her mother and even a shaitel. The package is valued at over $5500, including much of what a kallah needs to establish her new home. But it’s not just about quantity: TDL kallahs are treated to a showroom experience, choosing from a wide selection of up to date, quality items that would make any kallah proud to own. With TDL’s trademark sensitivity and discretion, each kallah works with the designated TDL showroom volunteer of her choice. The TDL shopping experience is identical to that of shopping in a conventional store – minus the price tag.
With close to a $1,000,000 yearly budget, which is continuously growing as the Lakewood community expands, Tiferes Devorah L’kallah needs your help to continue setting up our kallahs’s new home.
Your generous support will enable every kallah to build her new home on a solid foundation. May the zechus of supporting Lakewood’s kallahs bring much bracha and happiness to your own home.
