- Question: [Sunday, 12th Adar 5783]
May I donate money to an institution, such as Ezer Mitziyon, or a Torah organization for Matanos Laevyonim?
The money must be given to an actual poor Jew and not to an organization. Certainly, one may give the money to a an institution who will distribute the money to poor Jews on Purim. This includes Kolalim and other Torah organizations who will give the money to poor recipients on Purim. However, to give to an organization for their general expenses, is not included in this Mitzvah.
