I Fly With Lema'an Achai
This year, perhaps more than most, we look forward to the joy of Purim, the happiest day in the Jewish year.
This joy should be felt by everyone, regardless of their station in life.
This year, your generosity is the virtual connection so badly needed to balance the social distancing.
The mitzvah to give Matanot L’evyonim (gifts to the poor) is central to the spirit of Purim. The families of Lema'an Achai work hard year round to attain self-sufficiency. Matanot L'evyonim allows them to take a break on Purim and enjoy the festivities like everyone around them.
Due to Covid limitations AND Purim falling on Friday, it behooves us to encourage everyone to give Matanot L’evyonim online, before Purim day when possible, to ensure that the gifts reach the needy in a timely and organized manner.
Purim Sameach and Tizku L’mitzvot!
