For the very first time, Bayit Lepleitot hosted a dinner in Mexico and got to know additional members of this wonderful Jewish community. The dinner, arranged by the Women’s Committee for Bayit Lepleitot in Mexico headed by Mrs. Maro Kimhi and Mrs. Leila Belenga, was an incredibly beautiful event. As M.C. Mr. Raul Ashkenazi masterfully led the program, the participants watched the varied activities at Bayit Lepleitot, heard the girls’ words of gratitude and listened to addresses by keynote speaker Rabbi Shaul Kardi, Rosh Yeshivah of Keter Torah; Rabbi Ezra Katan, Rabbi at Yeshivah Ohr Damesek; Mr. Elias Kimhi, sharing his impressions as a donor; Mr. Yizhak Abud, Bayit Lepleitot representative in Mexico; and Director of the institutions Rabbi Chaim Elozor Rosenfeld.
The response was overwhelmingly positive, with an outpouring of support and concern that immediately translated into more girls being “adopted” by these very special community members, and donations pouring in to assist Bayit Lepleitot’s new brides as well as for further, much-needed renovations – already underway.
