Graduates´ weddings symbolize their escape from the cycle of despairMany of our children are second and third generation welfare recipients. Breaking the cycle of distress starts when the child is brought following trauma to our Children´s Home; it is completed when our graduates begin building their adult lives with their chosen partner, at their wedding. Building a new healthy home in which their children can be raised, is the fulfillment of the Bet Elazraki vision for our graduates.
We accompany our children and graduates during life-changing transition periods. Just as parents accompany their children. For our graduates who lack a functional biologic family – We are their family.
Wedding CostsContrary to the American custom in which most wedding costs are entailed by the bride´s family, In Israel it is customary that wedding costs are shared by both sides. Our graduates have no other family to lean on. We are their "side”. It is our job to ensure that their wedding is respectable like those of their peers. We must be there for them financially.
Most parents help their children at this special time in their life. We must be there for our graduates to ensure that the multi-generational culture of despair has ceased.
