History of the gemach

The Shelly Cohen A”H Bridal Fund was started by Paulette Tawil A”H. She was a woman whose heart was as wide open as her doors. Her goal was to make sure that every bride had all that she needed for her special day. Paulette started by lending out the wedding gowns of her four daughters. She quickly realized what a great need there was in our community. Many girls needed to borrow a gown due to financial reasons and many were simply looking for an alternative to buying. As the smiles on brides’ faces started growing, so did Paulette’s gown collection.

Paulette Tawil A”H handed her legacy over to her daughter, Shelly Cohen A”H, and the Gemach soon became the apple of her eye. “Shelly’s Brides” were the highlight of her day and got her through some of her hardest battles. Shelly was ill at the time and this great mitzvah illuminated her life. Her philosophy was that every bride deserves love and patience, and she gave them an abundance of both. Each bride was treated with golden gloves.

TODAY

Today the legacy is continued by us, Shelly’s family, and a group of devoted selfless volunteers. The Gemach is currently in a storefront location, and boasts more than 400 gowns. We constantly buy bride and bridal party dresses as well as headpieces, veils, and petticoats to keep our inventory fresh and up to date. Our gowns are current styles and are competitive to all the upscale boutiques. When our clients come to us they voice how they only wished they had known about us sooner, and realized we have the gown of their dreams without the pressure of a price tag.

The NEED

It is essential that we raise enough money this year to refresh our inventory. We need new bridal gowns and new bridal party gowns as well as headpieces and veils. Every donation that comes in goes to making sure that this mitzvah is done with the utmost dignity and that every bride, mother of the bride and groom or family member of a bride feels like a million dollars when they walk through our doors.

It’s been an honor to dress you for your special occasions and we hope to service you for many years to come. Our only hope is to continue growing and giving back to our wonderful community. May this great zechut be an elevation for Shelly Cohen’s soul, and may she see true nachat from this great establishment. We should all merit to see the coming of Mashiach, speedily in our days.
