GIVING TOGETHER. For millennia, Shabbos & Yom Tov candlelighting has been accompanied by a small gift to tzedakah, a sacred custom. Ner Echad’s innovative system enables its members around the world to participate by giving a single dollar — automatically, and all at the exact same moment. 100% of every dollar goes to the Batsheva Kanievsky Widow & Children Fund.Give
LIGHTING & PRAYING TOGETHER. Our sages teach that performing a mitzvah as a group multiplies its spiritual power. When thousands of us join together in candlelighting, tzedakah and prayer for one another, our mitzvos and prayers are magnified exponentially. Together we create a wellspring of blessing and generate protective light for the entire Jewish people.Light
GLOBAL UNITY. Women have always played a decisive role in the history of the Jewish Nation. The Ner Echad Global Network enables us to connect with others around the world through prayer, mitzvos, and meaningful group activities. When we share our encouragement, insights, and experiences, we promote positive change in ourselves, affecting the entire world.Unite
The Rebbetzin's Legacy
Rebbetzin Batsheva Kanievsky devoted her whole life and being to unite Jewish women from all walks of life in group mitzvos, acts of loving-kindness, and self improvement - strengthening the bonds that tied them to their faith and to each other. When she passed away suddenly, she left behind a void that has yet to be filled—until today. Ner Echad was founded by Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky and his family to perpetuate the Rebbetzin's life-work and legacy, bringing light into the world, and immeasurable blessing and protection for Jews around the globe.
Never before in the history of the Jewish people have thousands of women joined together week after week to light Shabbos candles, pray for each other and give charity - as a distinct group. Ner Echad is a colossal force that will certainly generate a wellspring of spiritual and material blessing, and create an enormous protective shield for the entire Jewish nation.
