The four special mitzvahs of Purim all start with the letter “mem”: 1) Megillah, 2) Mishloach manot (sending food gifts to friends), 3) Matanot la’evyonim (charity to the poor), and 4) Mishteh (a festive meal). What is the deeper significance of this connection?
Amazingly beautiful - brought me to tears. This week I prayed for Purim to be personal for me this year - deeply meaningful. Prayer answered through the wonderful discovery of my experiences and analysis of them through the lens of this revelatory teaching. Hokhmah & Binah kiss.
