She didn’t really know how it was all going to be possible. It was supposed to be the happiest time in her life. She was a kallah. But it seemed that, along with the simchah, the stress level had risen sharply at home. She felt guilty about having needs. Because all the things that she was supposed to enjoy at this point in her life, setting up a home, shopping for sheva brachos clothing…it all meant money. And there wasn’t really any.
But today, the guilt and stress that had been complicating her simchah was lifted off her shoulders. She felt light. For the first time since her engagement, she was truly happy. She “purchased” dishes, silverware, towels, linens and much more. She truly loved everything she picked! In TDL’s amazing showroom there was a vast array of linens on display and she chose her favorite. There were perhaps 40 different styles of flatware — it had been so hard to choose! She picked up a food processor and other small appliances. Even sheva brachos clothing was taken care of, because along with what she needed to set up her home, she had been given a gift card to a local store to shop and choose outfits, just like any other kallah! It was so much fun!
For the past 23 years, Tiferes Devorah L’Kallah has been helping Lakewood’s kallahs set up their homes. About 300 kallahs a year “shop” in their beautiful showroom that boasts everything a kallah needs. TDL purchases quality items at wholesale prices, so it costs them about half of what the items would cost in a store. The TDL kallah gets a package that is valued at $6000, all for free. For those on better financial footing but still feeling the strain of making a chasuna, the items are offered at cost price.
Sometimes donors sponsor sheitels, dinette sets, area rugs, couches … or other items a new couple might need. The kallahs shop with private appointments with personal attention to help them make their selections. And there’s no rush! They take their time in their own 2-hour window, selecting all the items that will make their home their own. When they’re done, the items are brought out to their car. The kallah feels taken care of and so happy.
Tiferes Devorah L’Kallah is an essential organization that does
hachnosas kallah is a most beautiful, dignified way.
Every year they host a beautiful “Evening Under the Stars”. This year due to Covid, in lieu of their annual event they are having a “Reaching for the Stars” auction to help fund the organization and enable them to make the engagement period a stress-free one for so many young ladies and their families.
