Do Children Need to Give Machatzis Hashekel?

In the last weekday sicha (23 Adar Rishon 5752 – 30 years ago), the Rebbe made a special request about the giving of Machtzis Hashekel. The Rebbe asked that also children should give their own Machtzis Hashekel.

Tzedaka is generally regarded as a powerful tool to bring peace and security to the world, as the Rebbe mentioned countless times. However, the Gemara says that the miracle of Purim was in the merit of the Machtzis Hashekel specifically.In this zchus may there be Sholom in Ukraine, and all Yidden should be healthy and well, and celebrate Purim with simcha and joy.

We would like to give a Yasher Koach to Rabbi Yosef Minkowitz for being Meorer this important Hora’ah. Below is a letter that was sent to the parents of Beis Rivkah Montréal with more information.
