Purim Festivities

Purim Dinner

Let's celebrate Purim together at Shaloh House Sunday, March 24th at 5:00pm. Come dressed in costume. Eat a traditional meat menu. Enjoy a collaborative drum circle with Otha Day.

Food Gifts to Friends

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

On Purim day, March 23rd, 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.

Giving to the Needy
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 23rd.

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.
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 one of three charities who will distribute your gift to people in need.
