The mitzvah of Mishloach Manot is fulfilled by sending gift baskets to friends. It is a mitzvah opportunity that is proscribed in the text of the Scroll of Esther. After Esther and Mordechai save the Jews from annihilation, the text commands the Jews to observe Purim as a day of “feasting and merrymaking, and as an occasion for sending gifts to one another [mishloach manot] and presents to the poor [matanot la’evyonim].” (Esther 9:22).

This year, Lori and I became Benefactors of Congregation Brith Shalom. We didn’t do it because it was financially easy, but because it was time, and it was the right thing to do. Brith Shalom has done so much for us that it was easy to make the decision to move up a notch. Sure, our twins are still in college, we have mortgage payments and a car note, and constant repairs to make on the house. We simply recognized that there would always be an excuse; but we made it a priority to give more. So we just did it. It was our way of saying, “Thank you,” to Brith Shalom for standing with our family in past and future times when we needed a spiritual hand.
