Rebbetzin Sukie Rubin spoke about the importance of the group. Being a group means utilizing “achdut”; banding together. Only together, can we open the channels which will bring the shidduchim.
She reminded everyone to say the names of the children looking for shidduchim at the time of lighting the candles. Woman should keep in mind the names of their own children, as well as the names of the children of the other group members. 18 cents should be put to a special Hachnassat Kalla pushka each day and it is a segula to say the following chapters of tehilim: 32, 38, 70, 71, 100, 121 and 124. Sukie also emphasized the importance to be in touch with a shadchan, to give her/him gifts.
Then there were the questions/answers session and we thanked Dr. Chana Miriam Hubner for sharing her experiences.
Each participant’s names and the names of their children were listed on a pan to the Rebbe. This list of the children's names will also be distributed to the group members. We took pictures, said L’Chaim, and then each woman presented the profiles of their children.
Thank you to Pessy Leah Lester for opening her home and hospitality for this event. Many thanks to Sukie Rubin for sharing her valuable insights.
May Hashem bless our efforts and enable us to see many weddings this year!
