The joyful holiday of Purim provides a golden opportunity to both awaken and engage our entire community. Since 2000, Temple Emmanuel has combined this all-important Purim mitzvah of Mishloach Manot with a fun and successful fundraising drive. This year is a little different. In lieu of the traditional goodie baskets All of the tzedakah provided by our community will be split between the synagogue and the Wakefield Food Pantry! We will provide mishloach manot, “the sending of portions” from our community to those in need in the Wakefield community. This would truly be a Purim mitzvah!
