Donate maot chittim

Maot chittim refers to the obligation upon everyone to donate funds prior to Pesach in order to help the poor to cover their holiday expenses. While on most other holidays one is encouraged to invite the less fortunate to eat their holiday meals in one’s home, on Pesach one should ensure that every person has the means and ability to experience their own seder, and feel like royalty in their own home.
