Maot Chittim - Pesach Charity

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

The truth is that most 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 Pesach, it is proper to contribute generously towards funds that ensure that indeed everyone who is in need has the necessary provisions for the holiday—food, Matzah, wine, festive clothing, etc.

This special Pesach fund, originally intended to provide the poor with Matzah, is known as Ma'ot Chittim, "the wheat fund," or Kimcha D'Pischa, "Passover flour."

Don't be left out of this special Mitzvah!
