Purim, a time of merriment and great fun, is one of the happiest of Jewish holidays. The festival of Purim derives from the biblical story of Esther and commemorates the Jewish people’s success over people who tried to destroy them.
Significant of Purim is the sending of Shalah Manot baskets (special Purim foods and other gifts) to ones’ friends and neighbors. Sisterhood makes this mitzvah easy by making the baskets for the congregants to send to each other. For more information on sending Purim baskets, click here.
