Ma'ot Chitim – "Wheat Money"

In the opening paragraph of the Haggadah recited at the Seder, we declare: "All who are hungry, let them come and eat." Our nation is a singular entity, and in order to experience freedom ourselves, we must also ensure that our brothers and sisters have the means to celebrate freedom too. 

In reality, however, most of the people who are hungry will not be standing in our dining rooms as we begin our Seder, waiting for the invitation. As such, in preparation for the Passover holiday, it is age-old Jewish tradition to contribute generously towards funds that ensure that indeed everyone who is in need has the necessary provisions for the holiday—food, wine, matzah, festive clothing, etc. This special Passover fund, originally intended to provide the poor with matzah, is known as maot chitim, "the wheat fund," or kimcha d'pischa, "Passover flour." 

The collection of ma'ot chitim begins thirty days prior to the holiday, and the funds are distributed the Shabbat preceding the holiday. If one has not yet given by then, one should anyways give.  And when you help others to celebrate a joyous holiday, G‑d will certainly reciprocate in kind, and grant you and yours a happy and kosher, a meaningful and liberating Passover holiday!

Please click on the donate button below and I will personally distribute amongst families living in Jerusalem. Yasher Koach!!!

It is a Pesach to remember, I had a dream today of cut glass tumblers, in dream interpretation it indicates an increase in income. After I received the dream, I checked the lottery and I had won £25.00 on Friday night. What's also interesting is that this is the first Pesach that I have bought and cooked with Matzo meal.
