As in past years, Rav Yosef Fleischman shlita, Av Beis Din and Rosh Ha-Kolel, will distribute matanos la-evyonim to needy Torah scholars in Israel, on Purim. This year matanos le’evyonim even in Yerushalaim is on the 14 of Adar. Whoever wishes to fulfill this mitzvah in the proper manner can make his donation here, and the matanos will be distributed when it is Purim for both the donor and the recipient. In the merit of this great mitzvah, may the joy of Purim permeate the entire year.
By making a donation, donors appoint Rabbi Fleischman as an envoy (shaliach) to give the money to evyonim on their behalf. For donations in which the payment will only reach us after Purim (this depending on the payment dates of the credit card company), Rabbi Fleischman will make a halachic transfer (on the day of Purim) on behalf of the donor of the sum of money parallel to the sum of the donation. This sum will then be distributed, on behalf of the donors (as a full shelichus), to the evyonim. The donations will be distributed according to a list of evyonim, ensuring that all donors will fulfill the mitzvah with the utmost hiddur.
