Purim Service & Carnival- February 24, 2013 10:00 AM
THE MITZVOT OF PURIM
On Purim there are three commandments which Jews are obligated to fulfill. One is to hear The Book of Esther. The second is Shalach Manot, “the sending of portions” or sending gifts of sweets to friends, family and particularly to teachers. The third mitzvah is Manat L’Evyonim, “gifts to the poor.” At this time of great joy we remember those who have less than we do. This mitzvah can be fulfilled by directly handing money to those who are in need. If you want, the synagogue can be of help to you in fulfilling this mitzvah; your Manat L’Evyonim will be forwarded to the Walk-In-Ministry.
REMEMBER: EVERYONE SHOULD BRING
THEIR VERY OWN “MAC & CHEESE” GROGGER TO PURIM.
As has been our tradition, the Mac & Cheese will be donated to a local food
pantry as a fulfillment of the Purim Mitzvah of Manat L’Evyonim, gifts to the poor.
DON'T FORGET TO COME IN COSTUME
