Using vouchers for matanot la'evyonim


We are instructed to give gifts to at least two needy people on Purim; this is called matanot la'evyonim.

According to the Mishneh Berurah (694:2), it is ideal to give food for matanot la'evyonim, or money which the needy recipient could spend that day. Therefore, ideally, one should only use vouchers if the recipient would be able to redeem them for money or food on Purim.

Have a great day,
