Hunger on Purim
Purim Means Fun, Food, and Laughter, But Not for the Poor.
Being poor is always hard, but on holidays- it's even harder. All of us give out mishloach manos. The poor of Israel cannot. Our children go to school in Purim costumes. Many children in Israel have no Purim costumes. Teachers ask children to contribute a few shekels towards Purim treats for school parties. Children of the poor are ashamed to explain to their teachers that they cannot participate.
We enjoy bountiful Purim feasts. In Israel, thousands open their refrigerators on Purim to find the shelves empty. They cannot celebrate the holiday with a festive meal. On Purim, as on every other day, they barely have enough to eat.
Yad Eliezer believes that every Jew deserves to celebrate Purim with joy. You can make it happen.
Yad Eliezer's Solution
This year, celebrate Purim with Yad Eliezer! Your matanos l’evyonim donations feed thousands of families all over the country, bringing smiles and laughter to poor families on the day of Purim itself. In 2012, Yad Eliezer distributed over $450,000 in matanos l’evyonim (up almost $100,000 from 2011!) to thousands of families in dozens of cities throughout Israel. This year, even more families throughout Israel will gather around the table to enjoy the holiday with dignity and happiness thanks to you!
Make your Purim truly joyful. This Purim, make a difference to a poor family in Israel with Yad Eliezer.Read About a Yad Eliezer Purim Adventure!
