Create Purim!


The Jews in the time of Purim accepted upon themselves "to make these days of Purim into days of feasting and joy, and sending portions of food to each other, and giving gifts to the needy." (Esther 9:22)

Purim is not a "natural" Yom Tov (holiday); it is up to us to make Purim into a Yom Tov, through our mitzvot of the day, and through our joy and recognition of the Divine miracle which saved us on the original Purim.

(Based on Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 5:20)

Have a great day,
