“I had been sponsoring three of Bayit Lepleitot’s girls for over six years now, and I never thought much about it. Last winter I was invited to visit the girls during my visit to Israel, and I was moved beyond words to see them. They were lovely, happy, thriving, and it is clear that this home is a truly warm and loving place for their growth. I am extremely proud to have a small part in these beautiful girls’ success.”
“We have recently ‘married off’ “our” girl, and I must say that it was one of the most powerfully moving occasions of our entire lives.”
“As a supporter of Bayit Lepleitot for many years, I was thrilled to visit the orphanage in person on my recent trip to Israel. It shall forever remain a heartwarming memory worth cherishing.
“It was so inspiring to finally meet Rachel, a nice woman from America who adopted me as her friend at Bayit Lepletot and sent me so many gifts. When she arrived here, I was nearly crying with joy to meet the person who spent so much time caring for Bayit Lepleitot and making us happier.”
“I never met Masha [my sponsor], but I like to think of her a little bit as my mother. She sometimes writes me letters and I write back. I tell her about my day and my friend. And I know that she cares. She even sent me a gift for my birthday and sent me money to buy an outfit for Rosh Hashana, and I was so happy.”
“When I look at my beautiful home nowadays I think of all the people who helped make this impossible reality true for me, and my heart is filled with so much gratitude. …My sponsor, especially, has a huge part in the new Jewish home that [my husband] and I are building now. I cannot begin to imagine the zchuyot that these people have.”
