Under The Guidance Of Rabbinic and Rosh Yeshivas
It's the time of year again. The time of year when simcha
and joy permeate our homes and feelings of festivity are palpable
But for many amongst us this feeling of simcha is bittersweet.
Purim means pesach is almost here, and to many this means, "How
will we put matzohs and wine on the seder table? How will we
provide even basic Yom Tov clothing for our families"?
Enter Ezras Yisroel a multi faceted organization whose goal
and mission is one of total dedication to helping those less
One of the many projects of Ezras Yisroel is their Matonos L'evyonim
Campaign, under the auspices of the venerable Rabbi Avrohom
Yakkov Pam zt"l of Yeshiva Torah Vodaas, Ezras Yisroel has,
for the past several years raised and distributed large sums
of money to the needy on Purim. While many of us spend Purim
joyfully, with family and friends, these dedicated volunteers
spend these hours in a different form of joy. They spend their
Purim in the most fulfilling manner of all. The joy of giving
to those in need.
Last year close to a hundred families found their burdens somewhat
alleviated by the intervention of Ezras Yisroel. These are all
families in our midst, who cannot and would not otherwise ask
for assistance, but once receiving of help are thankful beyond
Unfortunately cases like these do exist. Families amongst us
are sometimes thrust into unexpectedly difficult times. We are
not aware, but Ezras Yisroel is aware. They seek out those in
need and strive to make a difference by helping alleviate their
overwhelming monetary burden especially on Purim.
Ezras Yisroel distributes large sums of money to hundreds of
such situations on Purim. Thereby, all participants truly fulfill
the mitzvah of Matonos L'evyonim in the time-honored manner
of discretion and secrecy. No one in need is turned away. In
a most caring and sensitive manner they bring the joy of Purim
back into the hearts of those in despair.
Ezras Yisroel is recognized and endorsed by leading authorities
