In preparation for the upcoming Purim holiday, the Barkai Center is launching a project to collect Purim costumes for families in need.

“All of Israel is responsible for each other and it is important that on Purim everyone celebrates as one united community,” said Ronel Elkaim, CEO of the Barkai Center.

“We are working to ensure that there will not be a child in Israel who can’t celebrate the holiday for financial reasons. I invite everyone to contact us to take part in the project.”

The Barkai Center has set up a call center for those who need costumes, want to donate costumes, or want to volunteer to help distribute the costumes throughout Israel.

Those interested should email: ronel@israelrabbis.org.
