matanos Yud Alef Nissan Or Vaechom 5780 Web Banner7.jpgRegarding Yud Alef Nissan Matanos, The Rebbe related in the Farbrengen of Purim 5732: “Now is the time to make clear, first and foremost the emphasis should be on Inyanim of Torah. And not by giving away money, Tzedaka, for those learning Torah and Torah institutions, although Tzedaka is also commendable and brings down many great Brochos, rather by actually learning Torah.

“In other words, plain and simply said, those who wish to give presents, and no-one is required to do so, should add in Torah.

“Although in general one cannot make conditions on a gift, the whole point is to give Nachas Ruach, [so I am making clear what I prefer]. Whatever it might be, Tzedaka in this way, more activities, good actions, its Nachon, and Tov, and Yashar, and Naim, (with all the 15 expressions in Vaytziv V’nachon) everyone should add in some way in Torah study. 

“And as mentioned earlier [in the Sicha] both in Nigleh and in Chassidus.”
