In a story about the holiday of Purim we learn about the importance of the mitzvah of Shelah Manot. We also learn more about both Shelah Manot and Matanot L’Evyonim, and about what a Purim shpiel is. If time permits, invite someone from
the local food bank to come and speak to the students about the importance of giving to others.
