As you know, Ten Yad has been a lifeline for needy kallahs for over thirty years. With the help of your generous donations, Ten Yad has been able to help financially struggling kallahs with the overwhelming costs of a Jewish wedding and provide them with all the essentials of a Jewish home. Each year it provides several hundred kallahs two sets of dishes, cutlery, pots and pans; kitchen and bath towels, linen and quilts; and stipends for lingerie and sheitels. Ten Yad also free loans beautiful wedding gowns.
Ten Yad was established on the 14th of Kislev, 5743, in honor of the wedding anniversary of the Rebbe and Rebbetzin Chaya Mushka. The Rebbetzin took a strong personal interest in Ten Yad's activities in support of her precious "daughters" on their wedding day. In 5749, after the Rebbetzin's passing on Chof Beis Shvat, Ten Yad was rededicated to her memory.
As we approach the Rebbetzin's yahrtzeit, consider the great opportunity and privilege of giving an aliyah to the Rebbetzin's neshamah by contributing to Ten Yad in her memory.
“It is proper that gifts be given to charity in multiples of 470, the numerical equivalent of the Rebbetzin’s name. ‘May those who lie in the dust arise and sing,’ with the coming of the complete and ultimate Redemption; may it be in the immediate future… Whoever increases in all the above is even more praiseworthy not only giving 470 small coins… but large coins.” (Likkutei Sichos, 22 Shevat, 5750)
