Purim Festivities
 

Break-Fast and Hamentash Bake

Join us on Monday, March 9 for a fun Hamentash Bake after the Megillah Reading at CBJ. 

Big Apple Purim Party + Dinner

Our annual Purim Party is coming home this year on March 10 with a very NYC theme. We'll be serving a NYC style dinner with live music and entertainment. 

 
 
 
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 10, 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 10. In case you can’t find any needy people, your synagogue will 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.
