Purim

Purim is a time to REJOICE. to GIVE and to SHARE. Our annual Purim fundraiser which is based on Mishloach Manot, is prepared and assembled by congregation members. Mishloach Manot are gifts of food that Jews send to each other during the holiday of Purim. "Mishloach Manot" literally means the "sending of portions" in Hebrew and this mitzvah is meant to ensure that everyone has enough food to enjoy the traditional Purim feast. For Congregation Beth Hillel, it also means that as one big family, we want to share the joy with everyone.

Bagels from Benny by Aubrey Davis Submitted by Sandy Curry

“Benny loves to help out at his Grandpa’s bakery in the morning, and the customers love the crusty bagels with their soft insides. When Grandpa explains to Benny that God, not him, should be thanked for the wonderful bagels, Benny sets out to do just that. He decides to leave God a bagful of bagels in the synagogue at the end of each week. And each week God eats the bagels…or so Benny thinks…

Lovingly told, Bagels from Benny explores the values of caring and sharing, building a strong sense of community and finding joy in giving thanks.” Goodreads.com
