Give • Light • Unite
Dear women, I want to tell you about a wonderful initiative that was established in memory of Rebbetzin Bat-Sheva Kanievsky a’h.
They call it: NER ECHAD (one candle).
Every Friday night, when I light Shabbat candles, I pray for someone I do not know, who also prays for me when she lights Shabbat candles.
In this way, Jewish women from all over the world light thousands of Shabbat candles and unite in This way to: One candle! – Ner Echad!
In order to join this unity, you sign up.
Each week you donate $ 1, all of which its 100% dedicated to the fund established for Orphans and Widows.
Thus, not only do you help and do Chesed, but also if you happen to forget to put charity before candle lighting .. So you did not forget because you already gave.
So here is the registration page: https://www.nerechad.org/join.php
Here's a video that explains better than I do:
It is written: "Thanks to righteous women we were redeemed from Egypt, and thanks to righteous women we will be redeemed."
In other words, thanks to the sacrifices made by our Mothers and the women of Israel in the past, we were privileged to leave Egypt, and thanks to the sacrifices of the women of the last generations, BH we will have Geula now and immediately.
Penny and another penny eventually accumulates to hundreds: each one that lends a hand, and contributes to the joint effort tilts the scales in favor.
Every action is important, even if it seems to you not significant - it is!
Join and invite your sisters, friends, neighbors - let's make a big noise in heaven and bring the Messiah soon in our days. Amen.
We are blessing this Shabbat the month of Elul, the month of repentance (Teshuva).
Shabbat Shalom u Mevorach.
