Happy Purim!

A fun feasting holiday ...

We celebrated with a big plate of home made hamantashen cookies.

And as it is said:
"They tried to kill us, they failed, let's eat!"

but seriously -
There are four mitzvot (commandments) associated specifically with Purim.
They are:

-Read or hear the Megillah (Scroll of Esther) at night and by day.
-Give charity to at least two needy people.
-Send a minimum of two ready-to-eat foods to at least one person.
-Sit down for a royal feast.


Hope you enjoy the day if you celebrate Purim!
(enjoy the day even if you don't celebrate it)
