Purim at Chabad!

Purim Under the Sea!
Message from the Rabbi

The festival of Purim commemorates the salvation of the Jewish people in ancient Persia from Haman's plot "to destroy, kill and annihilate all the Jews, young and old, infants and women, in a single day." It encourages us today to celebrate the essence of being Jewish - wherever we may be.

And celebrate we will! Please join us at our Purim Under the Sea party that will take place Thursday, March 24 at Bauer Drive Recreation center at 5:00 PM. See below for details!

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, March 5.

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 this cause), and we will distribute it 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, March 5, 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.
