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 graggers (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. You should have received an email from the B'nai Torah Sisterhood about participating in this mitzvah. If you did not receive the email, please contact Sisterhood at sisterhood@bnaitorah.org. Mishloach Manot baskets will be available for pickup during the Purim Party!

 

Feasting at the Seuda: Continue the joy on Purim day with the Purim Seuda, a festive meal. On Thursday, March 21 after the late-riser's Megillah reading, join Rabbi Heller at 12:00 PM for "Laugh and Learn" where we will 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. This year, we will be helping those in need with the following partner organizations: Community Action Center (feeding the needy in Sandy Springs), JF&CS (helping Jews in need in Atlanta), FIDF (bringing holiday joy to Israeli soldiers) and Masorti (helping our brothers and sisters in Israel to celebrate the holiday).

 

If you have any questions, please contact Ashley Cohen, Director of Engagement and Outreach, at acohen@bnaitorah.org.

Thank you to the vendors who are helping to make our Purim celebration a success!
