The Edith Horowitz Matanot Levyonim Fund


כפה פרשה לעני וידיה שלחה לאביון


No one in Israel, old or young, should go hungry on Purim. And we have three mitzvot to do for Purim to help make sure no one goes hungry or empty-handed.

This Purim, Colel Chabad will provide food and companionship to 6,732 poor, lonely, senior citizens in our 22 soup kitchens throughout Israel.

What’s more, 10,986 impoverished families — including many young widows with their orphaned children — will receive everything they need… and everything we’re obligated to give.

A souper celebration
