Chag Purim Sameach

This last-minute-before-Shabbat Purim mini-message brought to you from the Windows & Doors blog:
Purim 2010 (5770) begins Saturday night and it's a serious party. Think socially responsible Mardi Gras and you begin to get the picture.
Rabbi Hirschfield goes on to list the four essential ingredients of Purim:
  1. Reading/hearing the megillah (hopefully you'll take time out to go do this on Sunday!).
  2. Giving gifts to the poor (consider making a donation to Chevra!).
  3. Mishloach Manot, giving food gifts to friends and neighbors (don't forget to check the hechsher for your Jewish friends!).
  4. The Seudah, or festive meal.
If you haven't already, make sure to work these essentials into your schedule for Sunday. Party responsibly, kids--and Chag Purim Sameach!
