The mitzvah of Hachnosas Kallah is so great that the Mishnah in Pe'ah lists it as one of the mitzvois that one reaps the benefits in both worlds.
"Hachnosat Kallah. (Dowering the bride) is one of the things which man enjoys the fruits in this world with the principal benefit enjoyed in the world to come"
This Mishnah is recited every morning in our morning prayers.
We are soon going to commemorate the wedding anniversary of the Rebbe and the Rebbetzin, which occurred on the 14th day of Kislev.
It would be very appropriate, at this time, to consider donating to the very worthy cause of Hachnasat Kallah.
A special fund has been established some time ago to assist the families of young couples, who are about to get married, with their wedding and establishing their homes.
So far many young chattanim and kallot have been helped and we need to have ongoing support from the community to enable us to continue with this very important and vital function.
Please be part of this great mitzvah by donating to this cause.
