Chanukah Food For the Needy Campaign in Tsfas

Chanukah is a very special time for giving Tzedakah. The custom of giving our children "Chanukah Gelt" is in order to teach them the importance of Tzedakah. At this time when we renew our connection to the Mitzvos and yearn for the re-dedication of the Temple, what better way to connect with these two Mitzvos than helping the impoverished families of the Holy Land?

Last year, Eizer L'Shabbos was fortunate enough to give out food to hundreds of needy families. Hundreds of children celebrated Chanukah with hearts full of joy, due to the packages Eizer L'Shabbos gave out. Unfortunately, this year there is only enough money for a small number of families. So many children are desperately counting on your donation. Please give what you can, so we can spread the light of Chanukah in the Holy City of Tsfas.

The Zohar teaches, "One whom Hashem loves, He sends him a gift: A poor man, so that he can acquire the Mitzvah of helping him."

May the merit of Rebbe Shimon bar Yochai protect us this Chanukah. Amen.
