Dear Friends and Members,

As we approach the joyous celebration of Purim, I wish to remind you of the central importance of providing support for those who do not have the funds to make a proper Purim seudah.  It is important that you fulfill the mitzvah of matanot l’evyyonim by giving tzedakah to at least two needy individuals on Purim.  If you cannot, or are uncomfortable giving directly to a local person, you can make a donation to the Rabbi’s Discretionary Fund and I will distribute a portion of those contributions locally on Purim day.  I will also send a portion to several established institutions in Israel that provide for hungry and needy Israeli families and children.

Rabbi Shlomo Ganzfried in the Kitzur Shulchan Aruch writes, “It is better [and more praiseworthy] to increase the amount of money given for matanot l’evyyonim than to enlarge one’s Purim meal or increase the amount of mishloach manot that one send’s to friends; for there is no greater joy and splendor before the Holy One Blessed is He than to gladden the heart of the poor, the orphaned and the widowed.” (142:1)

May you have a Purim Same’ach,

Rabbi Howard Zack
