Did you know Purim is on Friday, Feb. 26? What exactly is Purim
Purim in English means the Feast of Lots, which is a joyous festival commemorating the survival of Jews during 5th century BCE after they were marked for death by their Persian rulers. To celebrate this holiday, food is exchanged and Jews partake in a celebratory meal known as a se'udat Purim.
Our NEXTGen community wants to make sure everyone has the ability to celebrate Purim. Jewish Family Services' food pantry, Popsie's Pantry, has seen a huge spike in need over the past year. To help stock the shelves for Purim, we are launching a week-long celebration, and are asking you to help fill this need for our community.
