Matanot L'Evyonim

This year, we are partnering with Ten Yad of Ottawa to fulfill the special mitzvah of Purim, Matanot L'Evyonim.
 
Matanot L'Evyonim, one of the mitzvot of Purim, is to ensure that every member of our community has what they need to enjoy the upcoming festival. Maimonides teaches us that we must focus our resources on Matanot L'Evyonim over other forms of celebration.
 
In order to properly fulfill this mitzvah, one must give gifts of money to at least two people on Purim itself and we are partnering with Ten Yad to make that happen for our fellow community members here in Ottawa.
Due to COVID-19 and the financial struggles it has caused this important mitzvah has become more urgent than ever.
