Highest Purim Priority: Matanot laEvyonim


One of the Mitzvot of Purim is Matanot la'Evyonim, in which we give gifts of money to at least two needy people, on Purim day.

It is best to spend most of one's Purim expenditures on this Mitzvah, as opposed to the Mitzvot of sending food to friends (Mishloach Manot) and having a Purim feast.

(Code of Jewish Law Orach Chaim 694:1; Mishneh Berurah 694:4)

Have a great day,
