Jerusalem—Torat Reva Yerushalayim, a non-profit organization, based in Jerusalem, will—once again—be preparing mishloach manot/matanot l’evyonim packages, which will be delivered to the neglected and homebound elderly of Jerusalem. The packages will include healthy snacks, gifts and Purim treats.
Torat Reva Yerushalayim—founded by Sharona Margolin Halickman—is a non-profit organization based in Jerusalem, which provides Torah study groups for students of all ages and backgrounds.
The packages that Torat Reva Yerushalayim delivered over the last 16 years to Jerusalem’s elderly were the only gift packages that these individuals received! This year, their goal is to prepare a minimum of 350 packages!
According to the Rambam in his Mishneh Torah: “Gifts for the poor deserve more attention than the seudah (festive meal) and mishloach manot (gifts for friends), because there is no greater, richer happiness than bringing joy to the hearts of needy people, orphans, widows and proselytes.”
A donation of $18 covers one package, $180 covers packages for an entire floor of a nursing home. If you would like to send mishloach manot to a student or family member living in Israel, please visit basketsoflove.org. Baskets start at $36. All proceeds go to tzedakah.
Donate online at www.toratreva.org or mail a check payable to Torat Reva Yerushalayim to: 110 Chestnut Ridge Road, Suite 228, Montvale, New Jersey 07645.
Donations are fully tax deductible.
