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 12.


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.


 Make a Donation
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 1st, 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.

Come join us in the Purim spirit!

During the course of Purim day, March 1, it is a mitzvah to celebrate with a festive Purim meal. Traditional foods include kreplach (stuffed dumplings) and fruit or nut-filled triangular cookies called hamantashen.  The hidden fillings in both foods remind us that G‑d's ever present involvement in the Purim episode was hidden, and was not revealed.
