Simchas are supposed to be a time of joy and happiness.
Unfortunately they more than often turn into time of great stress
for families that can not afford the expenses that come along with
it. Even the most basic wedding can be a small fortune when you
have no money. A Bar Mitzva or Bris can also place tremendous
strain of a family that is ‘just getting by’. Yes some families do
have parents or relatives that will pay on such special occasions,
but other families do not. Yesod Yosef helps these families with a
lump some that will help them cover some of these expenses.
