Purim, a Jewish family celebration, will be celebrated in Israel and around the world this Thursday and Friday! Children dress up in costume, parade through the streets, prepare gift baskets (Mischloach Manot) and above all fulfill the commandment to give to the poor and bless them.
We would like to give you, our supporters and friends of Israel, the opportunity to share in this celebration! Israel Today, has accepted the task of finding needy children groups and make them happy through various actions.
"And Mordecai... sent letters to all the Jews in all the provinces of King Ahasuerus, obliging them to keep the fourteenth day of the month Adar and also the fifteenth day of the same, year by year, as the days on which the Jews got relief from their enemies, and as the month that had been turned for them from sorrow into gladness and from mourning into a holiday; that they should make them days of feasting and gladness, days for sending gifts of food to one another and gifts to the poor." Esther 9:20 - 22
This year, on Purim, lovingly packaged Purim packets will be distributed to needy children.
