Purim is at the end of the month! This year's festivities are going to be totally tubular! For the adults, we're embracing an '80s Prom theme complete with dessert and dancing after the Megillah reading. For families, we'll have classic '80s era games and activities. We'll also have a full cadre of Purim services and, as always, Mishloach Manot for one another. No matter which rad way you choose, we hope you'll take part in the festivities. 

 

If you would like to sponsor our Purim weekend, details and registration can be found on this form!

Through this project, you can participate in the sending of a beautiful gift basket to your friends and family for Purim. Mishloach Manot baskets will be available for pick-up during our events. If you will be unable to pick-up your baskets, please contact us at info@bnaitorah.org.

Buy one basket for $10 or send baskets to the whole congregation for $250!

PLEASE NOTE: In order to send Mishloach Manot baskets, you must be logged into the account from which you're "sending" the baskets. Please contact info@bnaitorah.org if you need assistance logging in. 

 



4 Mitzvot of Purim
 
Reading the Megillah: Join us to hear the Megillah. The Megillah, “The Book of Esther,” is the scroll that tells the Purim story. When Haman’s name is mentioned, you can twirl groggers (noisemakers) or stamp your feet to eradicate his evil name. Tell your kids that Purim is the only time when it’s a mitzvah to make noise! The Megillah is read from a handwritten parchment scroll, using an age-old tune.
 
Sending Mishloach Manot: Sending food gifts to friends and family is one of the four Mitzvot performed on Purim. Thanks to B'nai Torah Women for spearheading this project. See below for how to purchase Mishloach Manot. 
 
Feasting at the Seuda: Continue the joy on Purim day with the Purim Seuda, a festive meal. After the Megillah reading on March 7, we will join together to eat, drink and be merry!
 
Giving Matanot L'evyonim: How can we celebrate when others are hungry? At all of our Purim events, be sure to bring cash or a check for Matanot L'evyonim, donations for the poor.
