Purim is a holiday of sweetness and joy, a time when we reflect on the power of an individual and the victory of the Jewish nation in the face of destruction.

A Purim tradition is “mishloach manot” (mish-LO-ach ma-NOTE) — the mitzvah of sending gifts and food. The giving of mishloach manot fosters a feeling of closeness and hope in the community at a time of the year when we are still burdened with the bleakness of winter and still dealing with this past pandemic year.

The rabbis taught that we should not only give gifts to friends, but to someone who is new in the community, to those who are needy, and to those whose spirits would be bolstered by knowing that someone cares.

Temple Beth-El helps us perform this mitzvah by delivering mishloach manot gift bags, with candies and hamantaschen to members who live within Hudson County.
