Subject:  Traveling for Purim
Message:  I'm planning to travel from Israel to the US for Purim. Questions:

1. If I fly on Taanit Esther during the day, do I have to continue fasting until the sun sets at my destination? That would add another seven hours to the fast!

2. Can I give matanot la'evyonim in Israel before I leave (to be distributed on Purim) or should I wait until I arrive and give there?

Reply:  1) If you can without much pain, you should.

2) Either way is fine.
