What does Haman, Hitler, and G-d have in common?

Dear Friends,
What does Haman, Hitler, and G-d have in common?  They all believe(d) a Jew is a Jew is a Jew. Haman and Hitler hated Jews. They didn’t care if you were observant or not. They didn’t care what sect of Judaism you were affiliated with. They saw the truth. Jews are Jews. G-d also views the Jewish nation as one – we are all his beloved children. This creates a responsibility to act as brothers and sisters to each other.
The holiday of Purim has two commandments designed to create Jewish unity.  The first commandment is to send packages of food to a friend(s). The second commandment is to send 2 poor people a meal ( or the value of a meal).
We are having two programs at the Center to enhance Jewish unity this month.
We will be celebrating Purim on Sunday, February 24th. There will be a family reading of the Megilla ( a scroll which tells the story of Purim) at 3:45 PM. This is an opportunity to fulfill the commandment to hear the Megilla on Purim.  During the Megilla the custom is to make noise when the name Haman is read. We do this to  fulfill the commandment to wipe out the memory of Amalak ( the nation that Haman belonged to). There will be tickets given out to the children and a prize raffled at the end. This will be immediately followed by a delicious catered meal at 4:30. Please join us!
On March 1, 2013, tens of thousands of Jews across America will come together to eat , drink, relax, dance, enjoy, debate, and celebrate at the 17th Annual SHABBAT ACROSS AMERICA. Hundreds of synagogues across the continent will take part in a historic national Jewish event to celebrate that which unifies all Jews–Shabbat! Everyone is invited …singles, couples, families–all ages. So bring your neighbors, your friends, your co-workers–and let’s celebrate together. For more information please call me at 917-826-9637 or email me.
All the best,
