Mitzvah of Giving
Donate on HERE or on Venmo @EMC-329
*MONEY IS GOING TO JEWS IN NEED IN JERUSALEM*
Please make donations by Friday 12PM
One of the specific enactments (see Esther 9:22) made in regard to Purim was to give special gifts to the poor (minimum 2 gifts to 2 poor people) so that no person lacked the means to have a special Purim feast. Some have a custom not to turn away any person who asks for assistance on this day. Some authorities say the mitzva is only fulfilled on the day of Purim itself, so special groups collect money for distribution on Purim day. If you give charity money to any of the MJE Educators the night before, we will make sure it is delivered on Purim day.
Thursday, February 25th @ 7pm EST, we will be hosting a hybrid program where you can participate in-person or online, whatever your preference! If you would like to attend in-person (suggested for those who follow a halachick/Jewish law perspective), please register below. We will be capping our intake at 30 people per service—along with having masks, cross ventilation and HEPA filters—to keep things socially distanced and safe. If you feel more comfortable to join online, just hop on back over to Facebook for our livestream!
MJE Drive By
Friday, February 26th @ 9am EST, we will have an online Facebook Megillah reading followed by Rabbi Ezra Cohen and Rabbi Mark Wildes driving around the Upper West Side with hamentashen, coffee, hot chocolate & packets starting @ 11am.
