About us

The tragic loss of the young chosson and kallah, Yisroel Levin a”h and Elisheva Kaplan a”h, left us all feeling broken. Remarkably, R’ Shaya Levin asked at their levaya that in exchange for the pure souls, there should be 10,000 shidduchim as a gift from heaven. Let us show Hashem that we want to be the messengers of these 10,000 Shidduchim and together help suggest and facilitate shidduchim in honor of Yisroel and Elisheva.

This initiative, 10K Batay Yisroel, literally translates as ten thousand Jewish homes, as the goal is to build thousands of Jewish homes. It can also be written as בתי ישראל , in memory of the home we lost, the home of Elisheva Basya and Yisroel.

As we are all mourning this incredible loss, let us use this energy to build and create. Just making one suggestion can change the world… literally.

Managing Director

Not long after the levaya, Leba’s friend Sara texted her asking if she could help her out with creating a website for an idea she had called 10K Batay Yisroel. Leba is a high school friend of Yisroel’s sister and just like the rest of the Klal Yisroel, she wanted to do her part in doing something as a z’chus for Yisroel a”h and Elisheva a”h. After speaking with Sara, she realized that this movement is exactly what Klal Yisroel needs. Each person in Klal Yisroel is the…
