It’s Time For Purim at TBT!

On this festive holiday there are four Mitzvot that the Jewish people should fulfill:
1. Reading/listening to the Megillah Esther (RSVP for our Hamilton Purim Spiel!)
2. Sending Mishloach Manot, or gift baskets
3. The Seudah, or festive meal
4. Matanot La’evyonim, giving to the poor
