Yad Sarah Purim Cards
Chana Helen has created five art works and designed five Purim cards for Yad Sarah. The cards can be given to friends. The card is bilingual. It is written in both English and Hebrew.
Purim – a Time for Giving
You will be doing a great Mitzvah if you buy some Yad Sarah Purim cards. When you buy cards you will be giving a donation to help Yad Sarah in Beer Sheba to continue with their work. The entire amount (20 shekels per card), is a donation. Inside each card is written, ‘A donation has been made in your name to Yad Sarah, Beer Sheba’, on one side in Hebrew and the other side in English.
Where can you buy the cards?
