One of the most important things in being Jewish is unity and support for one another, especially in a time of need. Our families from Gush Katif must never be forgotten or neglected, and a group of giving selfless women, the Committee for Gush Katif Bridal Showers, have for the past eight and a half years made sure that the love and care would be translated into what we call, "Hachnasat Kala" or a Bridal shower. Throughout the long years since the expulsion and the sorrow and pain of our families, these women have made sure that every Gush Katif bride and groom was remembered with the most basic necessities they needed to begin their new lives.
Women from all over Israel and indeed all over the world have taken part in this beautiful gesture of brotherly love and support.
Now the Committee is celebrating the showering of 1000 brides from the destroyed communities of Gush Katif. They have teamed up with the wonderful, talented women from Gush Etzion/Efrat's annual dance extravaganza "Dames of the Dance", who are volunteering their talents in a special performance of their show dedicated to the milestone of 1000 brides of Gush Katif, and in order to help future brides start off on the right foot.
It is my prayer that we shall be blessed with achdut-unity- love of our Torah our Land and our people and return to rebuild each community that was destroyed amen.
The performance will be on Wednesday, March 5, at Gerard Be'char in Jerusalem at 8 p.m. Please come and help these wonderful women give the brides an unforgettable start in their lives.
