I need your opinion and readers feedback…
Em yerzah Hasem, my husband and I are approaching our 50th wedding anniversary, Boruch Hashem.
We want to do something b’ruchanius as well as b’gashmius. I came up with a plan to make a fundraising event which will benefit Keren Simchas Chosson V’kallah (KSCVK), the organization that helps make weddings for young couples.
We would sponsor an event – I’m thinking a melava malka with salads, fish, spreads, sushi and maybe pizza. We would request that all participants donate a minimum of $50 and higher.
My children are against the idea. They don’t think anyone will want to come (except for the immediate family).
I really want to do something meaningful, in a Jewish way, so that we can have a zechus not just a celebration.
Hashem has been very good to us and we would like to do something to thank the third and very important partner in our marriage.
I would like your reader’s input. Do you think it’s a good idea? Do you think people will want to spend the money?
