Purim is the traditional Jewish gift-giving holiday, hence our tradition of providing Matanot L’evyonim, gifts for the poor. A large figure of Haman (BOO!) looms in the Temple lobby during the Purim season with his pockets (hamentaschen!) containing gift requests which support the work of Tulsa’s Parent-Child Center. This is an opportunity for congregants to fulfill this mitzvah of providing gifts for the poor.
Thank you to everyone for your contributions!
