The organization received the blessings of gedolei Yisroel, who often hear the despair of parents bent under the burden of prodigious sums; many parents are even forced to sell their apartments and in some cases the strain can lead to health problems Rachmono litzlan.A rabbinical committee has been selected to guide the organization’s directors and staff in obtaining affordable housing and basic necessities for newlywed couples by making special arrangements with a broad range of manufacturers and housing and service providers.

Gedolei Yisroel are urging chassonim and kallohs to join the Binyan Shel Simchah program rather than placing demands on parents to provide goods and services at regular prices.

  1. The Religious Zionist (Chardal)community has been adopting these chasanahs for years already. The majority of families are eight or more children.

They buy or rent apartments, caravillas in almost any community at low prices while husbands attend kollels, hesder, techo programs, etc. Their needs, desires and wants are much more simplified.
