Purim
February 25-26, 2021
Message from the Rabbi

Purim is coming! It will start on Thursday evening, February 15 and Friday, the 16th.

Purim is a fun for all holiday, just like the decree was a life threat for all. At the time of Purim, Jews weren't so well-behaved religiously. They forgot that G‑d protects them and that was the cause for the decree. The miracle of Purim is so meaningful, because it shows us that even at such a time, when our relationship with G‑d isn't that great, He still will turn the world over to bring salvation upon us!

Aside for the corona challenges, the schedule of Purim is unusual this year as Purim falls out on Friday. This makes us move the dress up Purim party to be separated from the Purim feast. Please remember that the Mitzvah can only be fulfilled on Friday morning.

Sincerely,
Rabbi Bentzion & Mashie Butman

Give to the needy

Concern for the needy is a year-round responsibility; but on Purim it is a special mitzvah to remember the poor.

Give charity to at least two (but preferably more) needy individuals on Purim day, Friday, Feb. 26th.

If you are not able to find a poor person, we are able to facilitate this great mitzvah for you. Click donate below to send a donation to our center (note that it's for the above cause), and we will distribute it to people in need.

Send Food Portions to Friends

On Purim we emphasize the importance of Jewish unity and friendship by sending gifts of food to friends.

On Purim day, Feb. 26th, send a gift of at least two kinds of ready-to-eat foods (e.g., pastry, fruit, beverage) to at least one friend. Men should send to men, and women to women. It is preferable that the gifts be delivered via a third party. Children, in addition to sending their own gifts of food to their friends, make enthusiastic messengers.
