Hachnosas Kallah as Protection from Death
Over twenty years ago, the chief rabbi of Belgium, HaRav Chaim Kreisworth zt”l was very ill. He visited the Steipler (Rabbi Yaakov Yisrael Kanievsky) to receive his blessings and advice. The Steipler advised him to undertake marrying off needy brides. Rav Chaim immediately began to do so and miraculously recovered, living to the age of eighty-two.
