Purim is the most joyous holiday in the Jewish calendar. It recounts the saving of the Jews from a threatened massacre during the Persian period, as told in the Book of Esther, whose eponymous heroine plays the leading role in saving her people. The holiday is traditionally celebrated with putting on costumes, eating hamentashen and giving to the poor.
Mishloach Manot | Purim Basket (for our TBS Members only)
Purim is a day for celebrating how much kindness we can give to others. There is a Jewish tradition of giving Purim baskets (also called Mishloach Manot) to family and friends and this year we are again offering the opportunity to share in this mitzvah of giving! Every member will receive a basket with a card listing all who send them Purim wishes! Spread the love to your TBS friends and staff by adding your name to the card in their basket, which will be filled with goodies and holiday treats.
