 THE MITZVOT OF PURIM
 

Listen to the Megillah

Megilah 

  On Purim Eve, Thursday, February 25 and again on Purim Day, Friday, February 26 it is a mitzvah to hear the full Megillah read aloud from a Megillah scroll. There will be many opportunities at Chabad, and at outdoor venues throughout the neighborhood for you to hear the Megillah.

Mishloach Manot - Gifts of Food
 
Mishlo'ach Manot 2 (945x365)
 

 

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

On Purim day, February 26, 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.

DONATE NOW 

 
One of Purim’s primary themes is Jewish unity. Haman tried to kill us all, we were all in danger together, so we celebrate together too. Hence, on Purim day we place special emphasis on caring for the less fortunate.

Give money or food to at least two needy people during the daylight hours of Purim, March 21. In case you can’t find any needy people, your synagogue will likely be collecting money for this purpose. At least, place two coins in a charity box earmarked for the poor.

On Purim, we give a donation to whoever asks; we don’t verify his or her bank balance first.

As with the other mitzvahs of Purim, even small children should fulfill this mitzvah.

One of the Mitzvot of Purim is to eat, drink and be merry! Enjoy a festive meal to celebrate our miraculous victory.

This year Purim day is Friday, February 26 so the custom is to have the festive meal in the morning so as not to take away from our Friday night Shabbat dinner.
