Chag Purim Sameach!
ncouraged, Purim is also a holiday in which giving to others is a central practice. This includes mutual gifts of food and drink to friends and family (mishloach manot), and also helping others in need (mattanot la-evyonim). As such, CFJS is proud to present a fantastic resource for Purim from the social justice movement Uri L’Tzedek. This supplement, entitled Ve-Nahafoch Hu, takes the principles of Purim and expands it into a rich array of essays, stories and reflections with the central message of tzedek (the Jewish values of social justice. The supplement can be downloaded here, and to find out more about Uri L’Tzedek, check out their website at http://www.utzedek.org/.
