Purim celebrates a reversal of fortune — the deliverance of the Jews of ancient Persia from persecution.

For our March Mitzvah-in-a-Minute, NCJW/Essex is joining with Hillel of Greater MetroWest NJ to help local college students celebrate this meaningful and fun holiday, and to let them know there are members of the community who are thinking about them.

We will be creating “Purim Presents” for the students, filled with fun snacks, treats and traditional noisemakers and Purim masks! Rebekah Adelson, Director of Hillel of GMWNJ will be joining us to share more about what Hillel does in our area and how Jewish students are faring on campus.

You can be part of this Mitzvah-in-a-Minute in three different ways. Choose one, two or all three!

  • Join us on Wednesday, March 20 (three days before the official start of Purim) to help assemble the Purim presents
  • Purchase some of the items to be included in the gift bags from this Amazon Wish List. Remember to choose NCJW/Essex MIM Purim as the mailing address.
  • Bake hamantaschen to be included in the Purim presents. To adhere to students’ dietary needs, both kosher and non-kosher hamantaschen. If you are interested in baking, please contact Cindy Charney to let her know and to discuss details.
