We can’t replace their father.

But Nachzik Chazak
will always be there

Nachik Chazak.
Providing simcha and support to widows and orphans.

A Tatty is the person whose eyes glow with pride when his son says a Dvar Torah or makes a siyum.

Who patiently learns with him, day after day, making sure he understands.

Who davens with all his heart that his son grows to be a talmid chacham who knows that Torah is life. 

But what does a boy do when he doesn’t have a Tatty?

When there’s no father to teach his son Torah…
It’s up to us to fill the void.

Nachzik Chazak’s “Chonchim” Tutoring and Mentoring Program

With all of the trauma they’ve experienced in their young lives, many orphans struggle in school. 

And if there’s no one to reach out a helping hand, they’ll quickly fall through the cracks.  

Nachzik Chazak’s “Chonchim” tutoring and mentoring program provides a private tutor to each orphan in need, who acts in the role of father for the child – learning with him, mentoring him, and maintaining close contact with his school and rebbi. The Chonech is the one with whom the boy excitedly shares that he got 100 on his test – and who lovingly rewards him with a prize.  Just like his father would have. 

For many orphans, a Chonech is literally the make-or-break ingredient that will determine whether the boy goes on to become an upstanding Yarei Shamayim… or, chalilah, the opposite. 

But for a widow struggling alone to put food on the table, the cost is prohibitive.  Sometimes, she can’t even manage to cover his cheder tuition.

The Best Insurance for Nachas! 

By sponsoring a Chonech for an orphan, you’ll give him the educational and emotional tools he needs to succeed in life. 

But you’ll give yourself even more.

Hashem promises, “אם אתה משמח את שלי, אני משמח את שלך. If you bring joy to Mine, I’ll bring joy to yours.”   

By adopting an orphan, we purchase for our own children one of the most powerful insurances possible.  

Help Hashem’s child succeed in his learning – and He will help yours succeed, too.

When she cries… He listens.

When there’s no Tatte to ask the
"Mah Nishtanah" to…

It’s up to US to answer their questions.

When more than money is needed:A Nachzik Chazak steps in with hands-on support.

For an almanah, the challenge of making Pesach is not just how she will pay for it all. 
Throughout the year, these heroic women hold themselves and their families together while managing to hold their heads up high. 
But make Pesach alone?  With little children at home? 
At Nachzik Chazak, we understand the unique challenges faced by widows and orphans.
That’s why we’ve developed our special Pesach assistance program.
