Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him.
In a few weeks Israel will be celebrating the joyous holiday of Purim. One of the main activities of this celebration is the sending of Mishloach Manot (Gift Baskets) from family to family. This holiday is one that is especially memorable for children. They will dress up in costume and participate in street parades.
Unfortunately, there are many children whose parents cannot afford to involve their children in this festive time as a result of their economic circumstances. Many children rely on basic nourishment at after school centers, where they congregate in the afternoons.
Israel Today has been committed for many years to ensuring a quality life for all Israeli children. This year, as in previous years, we will be concentrating our efforts to help children from needy families to enable them to enjoy this time of the year.
Through the generosity of our subscribers and readers of the magazine, Israel Today will be able to:
- provide Mishloach Manot to needy families
- support underprivileged children, for example, by providing meals and financing extra-mural activities
