Nachal Novea Tsfat Fund: Matanot L'Evyonim

Gifts to the Poor on Purim, called Matanot L'Evyonim is one of the four main mitzvot for Purim. The Megilla refers to "sending gifts of food to one another, and gifts to the poor (Esther 9:22). Halacha states each adult must give two different foods to one person (Mishloach Manot) and two charitable donations to two poor people (Matanot L'Evyonim).

Giving charity to two poor people can be fulfilled through giving either food or money equivalent to the amount of food eaten at a regular meal. It is considered better to spend more on charity than on giving Mishloach Manot.

This year in Tsfat, as we have done for 40 years, we will be distributing Matanot L'Evyonim to needy families on Purim day.

Fulfill an important Purim mitzvah in Tsfat this year!
