Home > Rabbi's Message > A Purim Message from Rabbi Sandra Bellush

Purim sameach!!!! Happy Purim!!!! There are four mitzvot (commandments) associated with the holiday:

  • Mikra Megillah – Reading of the Megillah (The Book of Esther)
  • Seudat Purim – A festive Purim meal
  • Mishloach Manot – Sending gifts (which often take the form of Purim bags and baskets)
  • Matanot L’evyonim –  Gifts to the poor

Although the third and fourth mizvot on the list can be accomplished individually, the first two are often undertaken in community. Please join us on Wednesday evening at 7:00 pm in silliness and joy as we stomp our feet and shake our groggers, because we all need a bit of lightheartedness in our lives!
