The founding conference for the women's auxiliary of Mesillah
- Providing the Path to Financial Stability, was held at the
Vishnitz Hotel in Bnei Brak on 27 Av.
Neshei Mesillah was initiated by rebbetzins and teachers at
chareidi schools who learned about Mesillah, which was set up
with the encouragement of gedolei Yisroel in order to
bring proper money management practices to the chareidi
public and to extract families mired in financial
Neshei Mesillah activities will operate in tandem with
Mesillah, sending volunteer women to work with families being
assisted by Mesillah, encouraging housewives to implement
guidelines for careful management of the household economy,
conducting wise money managing workshops for chareidi women
and providing support for the wives of the organization's
Neshei Mesillah forms another building block in the
development of Mesillah, which expanded its activity over the
past year by opening new branches in chareidi population
centers, arranging various workshops and providing help,
counselling and guidance to hundreds of families from across
the chareidi spectrum.
Mesillah officials say the Neshei Mesillah project is taking
shape thanks to the tremendous awakening throughout the
public regarding the need for prudent money management and
the increasing awareness of the importance of preparing a
family budget and adhering to it.
At the founding conference a presentation on the
organization's activities was screened and a lecture on ways
to enlist the entire family in economic rehabilitation by
given by Dr. Boruch Shulam. Mrs. T. Shapira presented the
plans for Neshei Mesillah activities.
