Give to the needy
Concern for the needy is a year-round responsibility; but on Purim it is a special mitzvah to remember the poor.
Give charity to at least two (but preferably more) needy individuals on Purim day, March 12.
If you are not able to find a poor person, we are able to facilitate this great mitzvah for you. Click donate below to send a donation to our center (note that it's for the above cause), and we will distribute it to people in need.
Send Food Portions to Friends
On Purim we emphasize the importance of Jewish unity and friendship by sending gifts of food to friends.
On Purim day, March 12, send a gift of at least two kinds of ready-to-eat foods (e.g., pastry, fruit, beverage) to at least one friend. Men should send to men, and women to women. It is preferable that the gifts be delivered via a third party. Children, in addition to sending their own gifts of food to their friends, make enthusiastic messengers.
Chabad Cambodia we will try to enable every Jew in the country to celebrate the holiday. While Jews of Phnom Penh are more than welcome to join our party, we will also be sending Mishloach Manot to Jews who live outside Phnom Penh! If you (know of Jews who) live outside Phnom Penh, please provide us with the name, city and phone number you/they can be reached on Tuesday, March 7th. Thank you!
