PURIM - GIFTS FOR THE POOR (ADAR 14)

What's happening?

On Purim, we all, without exception, celebrate the great turning point in the destiny of our people. Originally, this day was meant to be a day of destruction for the Jews, a day of sorrow and mourning. But with the help of God, the events were turned around, and it became a date of great joy and celebration!

On this festive day, there are four commandments that every Jew must perform: reading the Megillah (the scroll of Esther), sending mishloach manot (gift baskets), having a seudah (festive meal), and giving matanot la'evyonim (gifts to the poor, orphans, and widows).

The commandment of seudah - the festive meal - is meant to be a time of "pure joy" around the table, to forget all the evil in the world for a while. This commandment must be fulfilled by every Jew, regardless of their financial situation or social status.

Unfortunately, not every family has the means to organize such a feast.

The commandment of matanot la'evyonim - gifts to the needy - obligates men, women, and children to give at least two gifts to two people in need, respectively. There is no greater and more glorious joy than to gladden the hearts of the poor, orphans, and widows. Bringing joy to these unfortunate ones is like the Divine Presence!

Every year, the Yad Yitzсhok Fund organizes gift-giving to the poor for the residents of Jerusalem and other cities in Israel in accordance with all the requirements of halacha. The money you donate within the framework of this project will go entirely to needy families on Purim and will be distributed directly on the 14th and 15th of Adar, respectively.

Fundraising goal

Thanks to your donation on Purim, we will bring joy to the needy, the poor, the widows, and the orphans and feed families in need!

You can fulfill the mitzvah of matanot la'evyonim with Yad Yitzchok, not just for Jerusalem residents, right now until the 14th of Adar inclusive (March 24).

Jerusalem residents can do so until the 15th of Adar (March 25).

The mitzvah of kindness is compared to all the mitzvot! It preserves and protects a person.

One who takes care of the poor, the orphans, and the widows is likened to the Most High Himself, who seeks to "revive the spirit of the lowly and revive the heart of the broken-hearted."

(Isaiah 57:15)

Happy Purim!
