Countdown to Purim!
With only hours away from Purim, now is the time to plan on maximizing your Purim so that you can tap into the inherent joy connected to the day. Purim is even greater than Yom Kippur (Yom Hakippurim which means Yom Kippur is like Purim implying that Purim is greater.) What we accomplish on Yom Kippur through fasting and prayer, we accomplish on Purim through JOY!!
The holiday of Purim has four special Mitzvos:
- Listen to the reading of the Scroll of Esther on Purim night and again on Purim day to “re-live” the miracle.
- Give charity to at least two needy people. Concern for the poor is a year-round responsibility, but on Purim it is a special mitzvah to remember the poor.
- Send two ready-to-eat foods to at least one friend during the day of Purim. Sharing gifts of food highlights the importance of Jewish unity and friendship.
- Eat, Drink and be Merry! Celebrate a festive meal on Purim day with friends and family, and rejoice in the Purim spirit. Feel free to join us at Boulder Center for Judaism for a joyous Purim Party and meal at 5:30 pm on Sunday, March 12. For more information call 303 494 1638.
