"Let them be days of
FEASTING & JOY
and sending portions to one another and gifts to the poor."
- Megilat Esther 9:22
On Purim, it's a tradition to give Mishlo'ach Manot (Purim treat baskets) and Matanot L'Evyonim (gifts to the poor) to make sure we all have enough to eat for the Purim festival.
While MAZON Canada is dedicated to this mission all year round, the Purim masquerade provides a dual opportunity to be joyful and celebrate, while also reflecting on a specific aspect of hunger: that things are not always as they appear. That, even in this country of plenty, millions go hungry every day.
This Purim, we acknowledge the invisible crisis of hunger by celebrating old traditions in new ways. As always, your donations will provide food for vulnerable people of all ages, ethnicities, faiths and abilities from coast to coast - on behalf of our Jewish community!
