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.

Purim Baskets/Mishloach Manot for TBS Members

Though this year we cannot celebrate with our traditional TBS Purim carnival & shpiel, we can still gather in spirit. 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 excited to announce the opportunity to share in this mitzvah of giving! Every member will receive a basket with a card! 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. Click here to order and for more information.


The deadline for ordering Mishloach Manot is 9 am on February 24
