Jewish boys and girls all over the world look forward to Purim - a day of celebration and feasting... A day of delicious food gifts from friends and neighbors. A day of masquerades and joy. But what about the 800,000 Israeli children who live below the poverty line? What about all kids who have no father or have no mother?
What about all those children for whom Purim is just another miserable day - only worse because everyone else is having such a grand time?
Jewish tradition requires us to celebrate Purim in four key ways:
The Scroll of Esther is read out loud
2. Mishloach Manot
Sending gifts of food to others
3. Matanot L'Evyonim
Giving charity to the needy
4. Se'udat Purim
Partaking of a Purim feast
You can hear the Megillah at your favorite synagogue on Wednesday night, March 20, 2019 and Thursday Morning, March 21, 2019.
