“Observe the days as days of feasting and joy and giving presents of food to one another and gifts to the poor.”
This week's Mitzvah Challenge is to give presents of food to one another and gifts to the poor in observation of Purim.
The tradition of Purim is one of the most festive and joyous holidays on the Jewish calendar. The book of Esther commands that it be celebrated on the 14th and 15th days of Adar.
Jewish people celebrate life on Purim by hosting festivals, dressing in costumes, indulging in food and drink, and giving gifts of food to the needy.
Purim is to be a time of "feasting and joy, of sending presents to one another and gifts to the poor." Esther 9:22
Join us as a CW4I Mitzvah Maker, in honor of Purim. Please make a gift of any amount to help provide an emergency food delivery.
Our goal is to feed over 250 families or elderly couples, including Holocaust survivors in dire need.
Each delivery costs 300 shekels or approximately $88.
When you answer the Mitzvah Challenge, you make it possible to provide people, like this poor lady pictured above, with immediate help and tangible resources.
As part of CW4I’s Mitzvah challenge, you can be a lifeline for the poor in Israel through our partnership with this most crucial lifesaving and life-changing service, Israel’s Crisis Hotline.
Thank you for blessing Israel and her people. We pray God will bless you abundantly for such a time as this.

May God bless you for being a blessing to Israel and the Jewish people
