Purim gifts to the needy (Matanot L’Evyonim):
The Megillah established that one of the most important ways in which Purim is celebrated is through giving to our fellow Jews. Please consider bringing cash or a generous check, made out to Congregation Beth Israel on Wednesday night, or to the morning reading on Thursday. You can also make your contribution right away through our website, picking the Rabbi’s Discretionary Fund and indicating it as a Purim gift to the needy. Your contribution needs to be made by Thursday morning. Rabbi Cohen will make sure that the funds will be distributed in a timely fashion.
