Jerusalem Needs Help

I’m just making the final rounds Erev Purim to try to help some very worthy and needy families here in Yerushalayim. I bless you with all the wonderful brochos of the Torah. Shalom, gezunt, parnosa, nachas!

As Purim approaches I have been receiving desperate calls from families that just can’t make it on their own. In years past your contribution has made a real difference to them and their children.

All funds raised will be distributed on Purim day to hard working, honest people that I know personally. None of your charity money will go into overhead expenses. We absorb the cost of processing credit cards so whatever amount you give goes directly to help someone in need. Making your contribution in advance of Purim allows me to distribute the funds more efficiently. Please help me help these families. Please make your contribution now.

This is a wonderful opportunity to fulfill the Mitzvah of Matanot L’Evyonim.

Rabbi Yaacov Haber
