How to Observe: Mitzvot of Purim

Thursday, 22 February, 2018 - 1:39 pm

In addition to hearing the Megillah (on the Eve of Purim and Purim Day), Purim is observed with three more Mitzvot:

Gifts of Food - Mishloach Manot

Also known more coloqually as "Shalach Manot/Monos", this Purim Mitzvah involves sending a gift of at least two food items to another Jewish person sometime during Purim day.

Gifts to the Poor - Matanot L'Evyonim

This Purim Mitzvah is fulfilled, also on the day of Purim, by giving generously to poor people (can be directly or through an organization that helps the poor).

Purim Feast - Se'udat Purim

Enjoy a festive Purim meal on Purim day. One should try to include bread ('Hamotzi') in this meal, since traditionally that is a distinguishing difference between a meal vs. a mere 'snack'. This is also the time to enjoy the extra wine that Purim is so famous for!

Join our grand Purim Dinner -  'Purim in New York' - to enjoy the Purim Feast in all its glory! Advance RSVP kindly requested.
