Helping new couples with the essential costs of a wedding and setting up a new home
Building jewish homes
The mitzvah of Hachnasat Kallah
One of the most important forms of Tzedakah is to give financial assistance to a young couple getting married, referred to as Hachnasat Kallah.
We are reminded daily in our morning prayers of this essential mitzvah.
our vital work
This vital work was started in Melbourne approximately 20 years ago under the umbrella of N’shei Chabad.
The Hachnasat Kallah organisation raises and distributes funds to brides and grooms in order to assist them with the essential costs of a wedding and/or setting up costs of a new home.
Words of thanks
Numerous couples have been assisted annually. With the growth of the Melbourne community, the demands of the organisation have increased.
Your support helps us continue to support young couples of the Melbourne Jewish community and their families.
“Hachnasat Kallah helped us cover some of the outstanding financial obligations. It was done in such a dignified way, in a way of true kindness”
“Upon hearing the wonderful news of the engagement of our child and being caught up with the joy, we were then confronted with the reality of the situation. Initially we smiled gracefully as the wedding costs tallied up and when we thought the budget was reachable, more costs continued to be added. We had now most certainly blown our budget..what to do..how to afford the costs of our Simcha? It became a heavy burden on our minds.
It was then that the Melbourne Hachnasat Kallah Fund approached us in a very respectful and gracious manner and asked how we were tracking with the Simcha preparations.
Their support and Chesed helped alleviate some of the stress and enabled us to prepare for the Simcha from a place of joy and happiness”

“For all those people who were discreetly involved in this incredible mitzvah, we say thank you”
“As we accompanied the young couple to the Chuppah, we looked heavenward and said “What an Am Segulah, a nation of kindness and goodness, a nation of brotherhood, a people that support one another both in times of sorrow and perhaps more importantly in joy.
For all those people who were discreetly involved in this incredible mitzvah, we say thank you and may you all be blessed to continue your Holy work and merit to proudly assist many happy couples and their families to the Chuppah”
