Your simcha
is our simcha

As soon as אבנה was launched, there was an outpouring of blessing amongst its members. Shidduchim happened. Babies were born. And joy filled hundreds of hearts. It’s incredible – and the sources are clear.

מידה כנגד מידה

When a single helps someone else have children, he will be blessed to have children himself – through marriage.

המתפלל בעד חבירו והוא צריך לאותו דבר הוא נענה תחילה

Simchas Olam has both partners praying at the same time. Their tefillos are extremely potent!

When a single girl asked Ohel Sarala to invite “her” couple to her wedding, they couldn’t attend – because the wife was expecting, and was on bedrest.

Another woman called to say that her son was getting engaged. When the couple that was davening for him was informed, they had their own news to share. They had heard that very day of their own impending simcha!

Let’s keep Rav
Shteinman’s zt”l
legacy alive

If someone looking for a Shidduch would help a childless couple achieve their wish, it will be a tremendous zchus that can help the single find her bashert.

Two things would keep the Rosh Yeshiva, Rav Aharon Leib Shteinman awake every night: the plight of single girls and the pain of childless couples. Once, in a conversation with Rabbi Shlomo Bochner from Bonei Olam, Rav Shteinman said, “If someone looking for a shidduch would help a childless couple achieve their wish, they will be blessed and find their bashert!"

Rav Shteinman explained that the מסירת נפש of caring for someone else who is struggling with something different than your own pain, is so valued that it storms the heavens. Rav Shteinman referred to Sarah Imeinu, when she was barren and decided to give her maidservant Hagar to Avraham Avinu, stating, (Bereishis 16:2): — perhaps I will be built from her.” Indeed, it was only after she enabled another person to have a child that she herself merited to have Yitzchak.

Essentially, the one struggling to find a zivug and the couple struggling to conceive children, both want the same thing: to build a Bayis Ne’eman B’yisroel. The power of together, the power of two individuals striving to help the other one achieve their dream, brings pure joy to Hashem.

Join the initiative

A segula for shidduchim endorsed by the
two of the greatest gedolim of our generation.

Elul 5777
During these auspicious days of mercy, your financial support can bring about tremendous segulos, personal brachos and a year of good news, as promised by our holy leaders.

We extend our blessings to those who pledge their financial support to Ibane, a new organization that pairs those searching for their shidduch with those who have yet to be blessed with children. Spearheaded by Rabbi Schlomo Bochner, founder of Bonei Olam, Ibane (Ohel Sarala in America, in dedication to Sarala Ginzberg z”l) will bring zechuyos to its participants, helping them see yeshuos they seek in the near future.

Simchas Olam has been established by Rabbi and Rebbetzin Ginzberg in memory of their dear daughter, Sarala z”l, whose simchas hachayim was infectious. The Ginzbergs searched for a way to perpetuate that simchas hachaim. When they learned about Rav Shteinman’s segulah to pair singles and childless couples, they started an email list that invited singles to join the initiative. In a very short time, the email list began generating an incredible bounty of simchas in Klal Yisroel! That’s when the Ginzbergs realized that it’s time to take Ohel Sarala even further.

Since inception, Simchas Olam singles and Bonei Olam couples have both merited to see miraculous success! The powerful connection between the people has carried them through to build their own Bayis Ne’eman B’yisroel.

Shidduchim

Waiting is so hard.

Some people wait for a shidduch. Others wait for a child.

Is there a connection?.

Apparently, Yes

When Rabbi Schlomo Bochner, founder of Bonei Olam, visited Rav Shteinman, zatzal, the elderly sage said -

“There are two problems that give me no peace of mind. Older singles and couples dealing with infertility.” Both have no children.

The two are related, he said. Sarah Imeinu gave Hagar to Avraham Avinu, saying “אולי אבנה ממנה, perhaps I will be built from her”(Beraishis16:2). Immediately afterward, Hashem sent the angel to tell her that in this zechus, she, too, would have a child.

The Torah is teaching us מידה כנגד מידה – a person is repaid for his deeds measure for measure.

When a person helps someone else have a child, he will open channels to also merit a child. Since marriage is the precursor to having children, helping a childless couple is a merit for a shidduch.

Rav Shteinman asked Rabbi Bochner to connect singles with waiting couples, by having the singles donate to Bonei Olam. Such an arrangement, he said, would harness the power of middahk’ neged midda hand bring about salvation. In addition, the singles and couples would daven for each other; bringing great bracha to both.

And so, אבנה was born. Sign up here

On yud gimmel Kislev 5776 (2015), Hakodosh Baruch Hu took back the special & precious Neshoma of our beloved & unforgettable youngest child, Sarala Ginzberg z"l, a young girl who had just celebrated her 17th birthday. While we are not able to understand the ways that Hashem runs this temporal world, we fully accept that whatever Hashem does is for our good and for our benefit. At the same time, we have a great sense of Hakoras Hatov for having been blessed with the great zechus of being able to care and raise such a special & wonderful child, albeit for only 17 years. She was a real "miracle child". Born with a rare condition that resulted in her being born with a defective liver, she was the youngest recipient of a liver transplant at the time, being only 12 days old. Notwithstanding the routine monthly blood tests & anti rejection medicine that she had to take every day of her life, she lived a completely regular and wonderful life. She was blessed with a terrific sense of humor and a zest for life, that endeared her to so many people. She had so many friends from school, camp & wherever she went. Her inner circle of close friends was large and all inclusive from all walks of life. Everyone loved Sarala z'l and she loved everyone back. Around six months prior to her petira, she began to suffer from several serious infections that despite all our efforts, resulted in her being taken from us just a few weeks after her 17th birthday. Her passing was devastating to her family, to her five siblings, nieces and nephews who loved her so much & to the hundreds of friends that she left behind. More then 1,500 people attended her Levaya and hundreds participated in the various Shloshim gatherings in her memory. Sarala z"l was laid to rest on Har Hazeisim in Chelkas Haneviim, directly facing the Har Habayis.

Now we are keeping the memory of Sarala alive , every day,
as we help others achieve the Simcha they are searching for.
