In the heart of the Holy Land, the call to participate in Machatsis Hashekel echoes with historical resonance, drawing parallels to the timeless story of Purim.
Just as in the era of Haman, when a decree threatened the existence of the Jewish people, today, the tradition of contributing Machatsis Hashekel carries profound importance.
Haman, a figure rooted in the lineage of Amalek, symbolized an enduring threat to the Jewish people. His offer of wealth to annihilate the Jews was countered by the unity and generosity of the Jewish community.
The Machatsis Hashekel, contributions dating back to the time of the Mishkan and spanning through the first temple in Jerusalem, played a pivotal role in nullifying Haman's malevolent decree.
In the present day, as we face challenges akin to the historical struggles of the Jewish people, the call to participate in Machatsis Hashekel becomes a collective act of strength and solidarity.
The modern parallel with groups like Hamas, seen as the contemporary Amalek, reinforces the urgency for unity among the children of Israel.
To our global Jewish community, now is the time to step up and contribute to Machatsis Hashekel.
By participating, you align yourself with a legacy that prevailed against adversity. We extend this invitation not only to our Jewish brethren but also to the Noahide community and all who wish to stand beside the children of Israel in this crucial period.
May our collective contributions be a beacon of hope, countering modern-day threats with the same resilience witnessed during the triumph of Purim.
As we unite through Machatsis Hashekel, let us envision a future where victory is not just a possibility but a reality, echoing the triumphs of our ancestors. Blessings to all who join in this effort, contributing to a world where unity prevails over adversity.
*בואו ונתחזק במצוות מחצית השקל השנה, למען חיילינו ובטחון ישראל.*
מחצית השקל שנת ה'תשפ"ד
קיום זכרון מחצית השקל מזמן שבית המקדש היה קיים, היום על פי הלכה למעשה.
הזמינו לפני פורים, על שם הפור, שליהודים היית אורה ושמחה וששון וייקר.
