Yad Chessed Purim Collection 2024 (Online)

From now until Purim Day, Yad Chessed will be collecting donations to fulfill the mitzvah of Matanot LaEvyonim. For over 30 years Yad Chessed, an independent Jewish social service agency, has worked to address the needs of Jews in our Boston area community who struggle with financial and food insecurity. With the support of donors, and partner organizations, Yad Chessed’s team of social workers provides swift emergency financial assistance, grocery gift cards, and compassionate care, advice, and referrals to those in need.

The mitzvah of helping those in need is central to the spirit of Purim and reminds us that we are obligated and honored to extend a hand in times of joy and celebration. Funds raised for Matanot LaEvyonim will then be distributed on Purim Day itself so our neighbors in need can purchase food for themselves and their families.
