35th Annual Matanos LaEvyonim Purim Campaign in conjunction with The Emergency Aid Fund of Yeshiva Torah VoDa’ath:

PURIM 5783/2023

Dearest Friends, 

As in previous years, we are coordinating the Matanos L'Evyonim Campaign on behalf of YTC Emergency Aid Fund in conjunction with the ESMF (Elizabeth Schwartz Memorial Fund) (donation details below).  This campaign started in 1989 with the guidance of HaRav Avrohom Pam, zt”l, and Rabbi Yisroel Belsky, zt”l, Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshiva Torah Vodaath. Money is distributed under the auspices of Rav Aron Pam, shlita, in the U.S.A. and Bo Ba’Yom in Israel. 

As we have done for over three decades, this campaign will brighten the lives of many desperate and destitute families; particularly this year with the added challenges related to the war in Ukraine; anticipating many new immigrants to Israel in the coming weeks and months.  The Emergency Aid Fund and ESMF, hopes to include such individuals in need of our Purim distribution.  Please redouble your efforts to participate in our tzedakah Bo b’Yom on Purim Day.

I will be in New York  March 2-14, 2023 B”H.

In appreciation for your partnership, I have personally arranged that special tefilos will be recited on your behalf on Purim Day at Kivrei Tzadikim in Yerushalayim, Tzfat, and beyond.  Please email with an "electronic kvittel" containing the names of your family and friends -- in Hebrew, if possible -- so they can be easily read by those reciting the Tehillim on their behalf.


With best wishes for a safe, healthy, and joyous Purim,


Rabbi Jay Yaacov Schwartz
