2017-01-17-PHOTO-00000109Approximately 1,000 Bachurim took part in the Keren Chassanim Zichron Mattel annual event in Lakewood last night.

Zichron Mattel, founded by Lakewood Shadchanim Shlomo Lewenstein, Tzadok Katz and Meir Levy, is the only organization of its kind that helps Chassanim fund their basic needs for their wedding.

“The event aimed to gain support by having Bachurim pledge Maaser of money they will have after their weddings, and to show support to the donors that subsidize so much of the Chessed that is done by this organization,” a coordinator said.

Speakers included BMG’s Rabbi Aaron Kotler and Harav Moshe Weinberger.

The lavish buffet was sponsored by local food establishments.

  1. While this sounds like a great organization to support, bochurim might find that they have other obligations once they are sharing their life with a wife and new family. It’s a little scary to pledge all maaser money before knowing what their new reality will be.
