Matanot La’evyonim

Hundreds of people depend on us!

The Mitzva of giving gifts to the poor (Matanot la-evyonim) is the last of the Purim-related Mitzvot mentioned in the book of Esther. Matanot La’evyonim is fulfilled by giving money to at least two poor people on the day of Purim. The gift should at least equal the value of about $20-$25 per person (what it would cost to eat an entire day)

Every year we distribute on and before Purim money and food to hundreds of people who rely on us. Old people, poor people, holocaust survivors, single mother and more.

Please join us on this AMAZING Mitzva so we can light up the world of many people who are less fortunate and may this Mitzvah stand to us as a merit to bless us and protect us!

Happy Purim!

Rabbi Anava and the entire Atzmut team

The day of Purim is fast approaching. Our annual Matanot La’Evyonim campaign to aid and support families in dire straits is underway. Each day we are contacted by numerous individuals who need our assistance. The need is great and the mitzvah is even greater!! Please help us with your generous donation. How can we turn down our fellow brethren?

There are many poor families who are suffering in our own backyards.

PLEASE open your hearts and donate generously.

The Rambam (Hilchot Megilah Perek 2:17) writes: “It is better for one to give additional “Matanot La’Evyonim” rather than to embellish their Purim Seudah and/or give additional Mishloach Manot ………… One who lifts the spirits and gladdens the hearts of these less fortunate individuals, is likened to the Shechina!
