CBJ MITZVAH DAY, SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 28 / PURIM BASKET DEADLINE

Congregation B’nai Jacob will support Mitzvah Day with several projects. The Sisterhood is planning a day-long project to organize the stage with the addition of shelving in the hope that more social space can be created. Additionally, Sisterhood’s Purim Basket Deadline is Sunday, February 28. Remember, The Mitzvah of Giving Shalach Manot (Purim baskets) derives from the Book of Esther, it is meant to ensure that everyone has enough for the Purim feast held later in the day, and to increase love and friendship among Jews as a counter to Haman's assertion that the Jewish people are characterized by strife and disunity.  According to halakha, every Jew over the age of Bar and Bat Mitzvah should send a food gift consisting of two different types of food to at least one recipient. Our Shalach Manot are filled with homemade hamantaschen, chocolate, and other special goodies. In keeping with this theme, the Social Action Committee will be preparing Breakfast Bags for the group Aid for Friends whose mission is to alleviate the hunger and loneliness of isolated home bound individuals. There are now 230 Catholic and Protestant churches, 7 synagogues and many civic groups that actively participate in the network of volunteers.
