- Give to the poor
Our joy is only complete when everyone - especially the less fortunate - can celebrate as well.
Giving charity to those in need on Purim is a powerful Mitzvah, and one which has the power to channel much blessing into your life.
Donate via the link below to help families affected by the war in Ukraine. Pro tip: The Mitzvah of charity on Purim is giving charity to 2 people in need. By sending the funds to different families in need, we got you covered.
Venmo your thing? No worries. Venmo us via @yjpaustin (write Purim charity) and make a difference in the lives of those who need it most!
- Gifts to a friend
It's truly a party when we swap gifts. And by gifts we mean our favorite type of gifts - edible ones.
- Eat a festive meal
Jews never miss an opportunity to celebrate by eating.
On Purim it's a Mitzvah to host a special meal to celebrate. Gather some friends, whip up something good and get the party started! Or come to the YJP Party.
