Poverty shouldn’t deprive a child of a happy Purim

Instead of feeling happiness and joy, there are hungry children in Israel spending Purim in sadness.

PURIM IS THE HOLIDAY OF MIRACLES, DELIVERANCE AND SALVATION.

“For the Jews it was a time of happiness and joy, gladness and honor” (Esther 8:16)

For a child from a poor home, Purim turns from a day of “happiness and joy” to a day of heartache and sadness.

Out of Work, Out of Hope

On Purim, kids dress up in costumes. However, after being laid off a couple of months ago, Daniel’s mother can not afford to buy him a costume. The holiday that Daniel has been eagerly awaiting for months seems hopelessly out of reach.

No Ballerina For Sarit

Sarit has been dreaming about dressing up as a ballerina this Purim. Unfortunately, Sarit’s mother is battling cancer and due to her intensive medical treatments, she has been unable to purchase a ballerina costume for Sarit this Purim.

Empty Stomachs this Purim

Ron and his sisters have gotten used to having little food in their home. They know not to ask their parents for snacks. With Purim right around the corner, they have little hope of enjoying the sweetness of the holiday like all the other kids.
