Matanot La’Evyonim and Poverty Issues: Jewish tradition teaches that one must send gifts of tzedakah to the poor on Purim. These gifts increase love and friendship between Jews, thereby dismissing Haman’s accusations that there is strife and dissension in the Jewish community. Today, the concept of Purim gifts has been expanded, and we offer to help all those in need.
Purim this year is March 12. The Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) of the Jewish Community of Louisville invites you to honor this Purim tradition by contributing financially to the Center for Women and Families and the St. John Center for Homeless Men. Both of these organizations help people who have seen their fortunes turn for the worse and help them get back on their feet towards self-sustainability.
To help JCRC support the Center for Women and Families and the St. John Center for Homeless Men, please fill out the donation form below or send a check to the JCRC 3600 Dutchmans Lane, Louisville, KY 40205. Please indicate in the memo line on your check that the contribution is for our 2016 Purim Appeal.
