Make the “Old City” Young Again This Purim

Purim is celebrated in Jerusalem on Friday, March 22 – the day after the holiday is celebrated everywhere else. Why? Because Purim is all about Jerusalem! The Jews of Persia chose not to go back to Jerusalem and rebuild the Temple and were confronted by the enemy Haman. God worked behind the scenes for the Jewish people to survive and we commemorate this great miracle by sending gifts to our friends (Mishloach Manot) and gifts to the poor (Matanot L’evyonim) every Purim. This year, Jerusualem Chai / American Friends of Ateret Cohanim is launching a Purim Crowdfunding campaign to raise $10,000 for the true pioneers of Jerusalem. We want to bring Purim cheer to the courageous Jewish families who have chosen to raise their children in the “Muslim Quarter” of the Old City, in order to not be like the ancient Jews of Persia who abandoned Jerusalem. Bring a smile to our families and children and help make the “Old City” young again with Jerusalem Chai / American Friends of Ateret Cohanim!
