POVERTY SHOULDN’T ROB CHILDREN OF A HAPPY PURIM

While all other kids are planning their costumes and excitedly delivering mishloach manot, these poor children are left on the sidelines.

Do something good this Purim

Help the poor people in Israel Celebrate Purim this year.

For those who can’t afford to provide even the simplest of necessities for their families, holidays can be an especially painful time. Meir Panim enables these people to ‘feel like everyone else’ and join in the national celebrations in a dignified and warm atmosphere.

Purim Packages

In keeping with Meir Panim’s warm approach, visitors to its center who arrive on Purim will receive two packages of Mishloach Manot – one for them, and one to give to someone else.

Festive Meal

Every year, Meir Panim offers a Purim Seudah (festive holiday meal) at each of its centers so that no one should go hungry on this day full of giving. 

Costumes for children

The idea that any child should be embarrassed to go to school because they don’t have what to dress up in, is heartbreaking. Now, not only does each child have a costume, but we do our very best to provide them with their dream costume.

Holiday Celebrations

From Kiryat Malachi in the south to Tiberius in the north, hundreds of Israel’s most disadvantaged children, families and elderly people are given the opportunity to listen to the megilah together, eat together and celebrate together, worry free.

Meir Panim Ensures that Every Child HAs a Costume

“I discovered one of the children who attended the Meir Panim after-school club crying his eyes out one day,” explains Ilanit Hafuta, Director of the Meir Panim branch in Ohr Akiva .

“I asked him why he was so upset and he looked up at me with these large, tearful eyes and said that he was embarrassed to attend his school Purim party because he had no costume to wear and his family had no money to buy him one.”

THIS PURIM, GIVE MORE THAN CANDY.

Your neighbors will thank you for not sending another plate of unwanted junk. Instead, help Meir Panim give food to those who need it most.
