Hey everbody!  It’s Purim Today!!!

Do you know what Purim is?

How do we celebrate it?

***

We had a question IF it’s OK to marry on Purim

So, we asked a Rabbi on Askmoses.com who said that we do NOT marry on Purim since we do NOT want to MIx the two Simchos together, as to NOT to take away from the significance, the importance & the holiness of Purim!!!

What is Purim?

purim-mordechai-on-horse

A. Purim is a Jewish holiday celebrating G-d‘s problem with one ancient anti-Semite’s Final Solution. The story of Purim is the subject of the Scroll of Esther, one of the 24 books in the TaNaCH. Purim is one of two Jewish holidays enacted by the Sages in contrast to the biblical holidays commanded to Moses. (The other is Chanukah.)

B. Purim is the plural for lots in Persian. Haman (pronounced Hah-mahn), the chief of staff of the Persian Empire, attempted the ethnic cleansing of the kingdom’s Jewish population. He cast lots to determine what date would be best to wipe out the Jews, came up with the 13th day of the Hebrew month Adar, dispatched an imperial Jew-annihilation order to every government office, and sat back to take a drink. Little did Haman know that the recently coronated Queen Esther was Jewish and the cousin of his arch-nemesis, the Jewish government official Mordechai. Through his palace contact Hatach, Mordechai begged Esther to intervene, which she did—greatly annoying her royal hubby Ahasuerus (AKA: Achashverosh) who was rather ruffled to hear that someone wanted to murder his wife and her whole extended family. “Who’s the slob?” snarled the king. “He’s sitting right in front of you,” sobbed Esther. “‘Tis Haman!” Haman and family were hung, the annihilation order was countered with a Jewish self-defense provision (which resulted in empire-wide street combat between the Jews and their enemies), and the Jews triumphed.

Jews were the doctors and lawyers of their day. They were successful… they climbed all social ladders, they were Persians. But somewhere, somehow, they forgot about G-d

C. To mark this great miracle, Mordechai and Esther instituted that every year the 14th of Adar, the day the Jews rested from battle against their foes, be celebrated with feasts and rejoicing.1

D. Purim is more than just a dramatic true story. While outwardly an ethnic celebration, its inner significance is its hidden spiritual side–the restoration of the Jewish people’s tarnished spiritual identity. At the time of the Purim story, all the world’s Jews made their home in the contemporary superpower, the Persian Empire, which stretched from India to Ethiopia. They were the doctors and lawyers of their day. They were successful–profoundly, proudly successful. They were doing great. They identified with their host society, they fit in, they climbed all social ladders, they were Persians. But somewhere, somehow, they forgot about G-d. When their prestige, position and powerful connections failed them in the face of Haman’s hate, when even their own sister in the palace did lunch with their main malefactor, they turned all their hopes to Heaven and rushed headlong into the open arms of their Fathers’ faith. The resulting spiritual renaissance so reinvigorated and revolutionized Jewish society that in a few short years, the Second Temple was built and the 70-year Persian Exile came to a close

Footnotes:

1. Esther 9:20-32. In Shushan, the Persian capital, the Jews continued to defend themselves on the 14th of Adar and rested on the 15th. The 15th of Adar is also a holiday. See “What is Shushan Purim?”

How is Purim celebrated?

1. Take a Scroll

Go to your local synagogue and listen as the whole story of Purim is read from a hand-written scroll of parchment called a Megillah. The Megillah is read once on Purim eve and a second time the next morning, Purim day. During the reading, make sure to make lots of noise when the name of Haman is mentioned. You might want to get hold of a “gragger” a special noisemaker for the occasion. (If you are unable to make it to synagogue, contact your closest Chabad Center. It’s quite likely they can get someone to come read the Megillah for you.)

…to celebrate in a way that you’re coasting on a plane that takes you beyond your natural inhibitions and constraints. Let loose and celebrate

2. Food Gifts

Send a gift of at least two ready to eat food-types to at least one friend on Purim. See Mishloach Manot: Who What Where and When?

3. Gifts to the Poor

Give a monetary gift to at least two poor people. It is best to give directly to the poor on Purim but if that is not possible, give to a charity organization or place money in a charity box. See Why do we give charity on Purim?

4. Eat

Some time on Purim day, have a great feast. The Talmud instructs us to get so “spiced” (drunk) that we know not the difference between blessed is Mordechai and cursed is Haman. Obviously this does not apply to minors or those sloppy with their drinks. The idea is to celebrate in a way that you’re coasting on a plane that takes you beyond your natural inhibitions and constraints. Let loose and celebrate. (Remember: Purim practitioners drink responsibly. Don’t drink and drive.) See If getting drunk is inappropriate, why is it a Mitzvah to get drunk on Purim?

5. Thank G-d

We add a short section of thanksgiving to the Amidah and to the Grace After Meals. See Where can I download the prayers for Purim?

Where can I download the prayers for Purim?

Actually, Purim has the least prayers of all Jewish holidays. (Perhaps we are intended to spend the day rejoicing and uniting with our fellow Jews, not holed up in the synagogue).

We do, however, add a short section to the Amidah and to the Grace After Meals. Click here for the text of this prayer — in Hebrew and English.

Footnotes:

1. In certain cities in Israel, Purim is observed on the 15th of Adar and is known as Shushan Purim. See What is Shushan Purim?

(http://www.askmoses.com/qa_detail.html?h=529&o=56435).

What is Shushan Purim?

David: What is Shushan Purim?

Rabbi Marcus: Shushan Purim refers to the day after Purim. It commemorates the day when the Jews of Shushan, the Persian capital, finally rested after defeating their enemies.

Rabbi Marcus: The Book of Esther1 records that in the rest of the kingdom, the Jews fought and beat their enemies on the thirteenth of Adar and rested on the fourteenth. That’s why Purim is celebrated on the fourteenth. But in Shushan, due to a special request by Queen Esther, the Jews received special dispensation from the king to continue fighting on the fourteenth—hence Shushan Purim, which is celebrated on the fifteenth of Adar.

David: I heard something about walled-cities and Shushan Purim?

Rabbi Marcus: Indeed. Shushan was a walled city. So in order to commemorate the celebration of the Jews of Shushan, other walled cities celebrate Purim on the fifteenth as well. Now, because Shushan was the capital city, it was considered prestigious to celebrate Purim on the same day as Shushan. The problem with that was that at the time that Purim was established, all the cities of the Land of Israel lay in ruins. So in order to grant some prestige to the Land of Israel, the sages said that inhabitants of any city that had a wall around it in the days of Joshua—even if now it lay crumbled—should celebrate Purim on the fifteenth like Shushan.2

Rabbi Marcus: In this way the Land of Israel was honored in the commemoration of Purim. If a city did not have a wall in the days of Joshua but had one in the days of Purim, its inhabitants would read on the fourteenth (except Shushan, which did not have a wall in the days of Joshua).

Rabbi Marcus: The Rishonim point out the connection between Joshua and Purim: Haman was a descendant of Amalek, the perpetual enemy of Israel. Joshua was the first to wage war against them (see Exodus 17:9). Thus the celebration of Purim is associated with Joshua.

Rabbi Marcus: Today, Jerusalem and Shushan are the only cities that are considered walled-cities as far as Shushan Purim is concerned. There are other cities in the land of Israel about which there is some doubt. The inhabitants of such cities, like Safed, observe the fifteenth as well “just in case.” (I.e., they read the Megillah but without saying the blessing.)

[Read the sequel to this chat: How do un-walled cities celebrate Shushan Purim? ]

Footnotes

· 1. Esther 9:16-18

· 2. Talmud tractate Megillah 2a-b. Maimonidies laws of Megillah 1:4-5

David: How do un-walled cities celebrate Shushan Purim?

David: I’m back again with another question…

Rabbi Marcus: My pleasure! What’s on your mind?

David: How do un-walled cities celebrate Shushan Purim?

Rabbi Marcus: Well, it is a festive day, which is celebrated with a bit of feasting, though not as much as Purim proper. We omit the Tachnun prayer as we do on Shabbat and holidays. You can’t fast on Shushan Purim; and if there is a funeral, we shouldn’t know from it, no eulogy is said. You don’t say the special prayer for Purim (v’al Hanissim).

Rabbi Marcus: Good news, though: if you want to get married on Shushan Purim, you can! (Though you can’t on Purim, since we don’t mix one joy with another. That’s why you can’t get married on a Jewish holiday. You have to give each celebration its own platform and date.)

Mishloach Manot: Who, What, Where and When?

food-basket

Everyone is required to send a food package to at least one Jewish acquaintance on Purim. This package is called Mishloach Manot — distribution of [food] portions. The package(s) must consist of at lease two different ready-to-eat food items and/or beverages.

Here are some Halachot pertaining to Mishloach Manot:

1) This Mitzvah must be performed during the daylight hours of Purim day;1 preferably after hearing the daytime Megillah reading.2

2) If you have little children, make sure they too send Mishloach Manot to their friends.3 It’s tons of fun, and educational to boot!

3) It is customary to send the Mishloach Manot via a third party. Little children make great, enthusiastic messengers! Also, have some treats handy to give out to those children who will be delivering Mishloach Manot to your home, and remind them to recite the proper B’rachah.

4) For reasons of modesty, men should send Mishloach Manot to male-friends, while women should give to female-friends.4 Alternatively, one family can send Mishloach Manot to another family.

5) It isn’t proper to send Mishloach Manot to a mourner. This includes anyone who has, G-d forbid, lost a father or mother within the last twelve months, or someone whose spouse, brother, sister, son or daughter has passed on within the last thirty days.5

6) Though we are required to give Mishloach Manot to only one person, someone who gives to more people is called “praiseworthy,” and this is a traditional opportunity for expressing our gratitude and friendship towards others. Nevertheless, it is better to spend money on giving Purim charity than on elaborate Mishloach Manot.6

7) The Mishloach Manot must consist of Kosher food. Now, duh…

See also Why do we give away food on Purim?

Footnotes:

· 1. Kitzur Shulchan Aruch 142:5

· 2. One should have in mind Mishloach Manot and Charity to the poor, when hearing the Shehechiyanu blessing for the Megillah reading. (See Siddur Yavetz on Purim).

· 3. Pri Megadim Orach Chayim 695:14. See also Shevach HaMoadim laws of Purim 11:6.

· 4. Kitzur Shulchan Aruch 142:4

· 5. Kitzur Shulchan Aruch 142:7. A mourner however must give Mishloach Manot. S/he should give someone something basic (just to fulfill the Mitzvah) but not a lavish basket etc.

· 6. Kitzur 142:1

A group of video editors have made a video about the Holtzberg and their guests.
The work of  love,  completed  in  48  hours,  included  many photos and  unseen footage of the Holtzbergs, and interviews with both Gavirel Noach and Rivkah – including an interview in which she makes  Elkanah  Shmotkin  a “prophetic” reference  about Sandra, the Nanny who ended up saving her son’s life.

Footage and photos  were  collected  on  several continents, with many people helping out, including  individuals  in  Israeli  TV  stations,  El  Al  pilots, photographers in Mumbai, and all the  Lubavitch  news  sites. It includes Gavirel Noach meeting with the Rebbe and a look into the inspiration that led Gavirel Noach and Rivkah to go to Mumbai.

The JEM staff worked around the clock from immediately after Shabbos, and completed the video before the Levaya.

It was edited by Yankee Teitelbaum, Yanky Ascher, Alon Schwartz and Yossi Margolin. Mendel Gourarie and Shmueli Shmotkin coordinated much of the research. It was written and produced by Elkanah Shmotkin.

 

 

They have called the video, “Love Means Love.” They dedicate their work to the Kedoshim.
 

 

The video is available at www.chabad.org.

 

We’d like to remind you the following:

 

Among with other pure souls whose names are as follows were murdered, Hashem Yikom Damam (May G-d, A-l-mighty, avenge the bloods of those holy individuals!!!):

 

·       Rabbi Gavirel and his wife Rivkah Holtzberg, the Shluchim (Emessaries) of the Lubavitcher Rebbe who ran the Chabad House

 

·       Rabbi Aryeh Leibush Teitelbaum who was the son of the Volover Rebbe of America and was a dominant figure in the Volover Rebbe’s kashrus organization, one known for its pristine standard (he was there to help with Kosher-Supervision)

He is survived by a wife and three children, with the oldest being 3.5 and the youngest 3 months.

 

 

 

Boruch Dayan Hoemes!!!

 

 

 

May G-d, A-l-mighty, avenge the bloods of those holy individuals!!!

 

 

 

 

 

For NOW, we’d like to say a little:

 

As Rabbi Yehuda Krinsky said in his comments in the press conference (we are paraphrasing a small part of his comments at this time, (We’re in the process of finding the full report, and we will post Be’ezras Hashem, very soon) at  According to CrownHeights.INFO:

 

“…The correct greeting to comfort the mourners is: ‘Hamakom Yenachem Es-khem Besokh She-‘ar Avelei Tzion Virushalayim’ which means: ‘May the G-d, A-l-mighty, comfort among mourners of Zion and Yerushalayim!!!’…”

Rabbi Marvin Hier Calls Upon World to Confront Islamic terror after Attack at Chabad Mumbai

 

 

Among with other pure souls whose names are as follows were murdered, Hashem Yikom Damam (May G-d, A-l-mighty, avenge the bloods of those holy individuals!!!):

 

·       Rabbi Gavirel and his wife Rivkah Holtzberg, the Shluchim who ran the Chabad House

 

·       Rabbi Aryeh Leibush Teitelbaum who was the son of the Volover Rebbe of America and was a dominant figure in the Volover Rebbe’s kashrus organization, one known for its pristine standard (he was there to help with Kosher-Supervision)

 

·       Mrs.  Norma Schwartzberg Rabinowitz  who was planning to make Aliyah to Israe-l, on Monday

He is survived by a wife and three children, with the oldest being 3.5 and the youngest 3 months.

 

 

 

Boruch Dayan Hoemes!!!

 

 

The correct greeting to comfort the mourners is: ‘Hamakom Yenachem Es-khem Besokh She-‘ar Avelei Tzion Virushalayim’ which means: ‘May the G-d, A-l-mighty, comfort among mourners of Zion and Yerushalayim!!!

 

Today, Rabbi Mavin Hier of Simon Wiesenthal Center speaks today regarding the tragic brutal and barbaric MURDER of the many people INNOCENT at the following address:

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rHeB81BbuYU

There’s un-fortunately so-much information to go-through and we are going-through them and trying to see what is appropriate to post, what is to brutal to post, what is too-heart-wrenching and what ….etc.

 

For NOW, we’d like to say a little:

 

 

 

 

 

As Rabbi Yehuda Krinsky said in his comments in the press conference (we are paraphrasing a small part of his comments at this time, the full report may be found at :

 

“…The correct greeting to comfort the mourners is: ‘Hamakom Yenachem Es-khem Besokh She-‘ar Avelei Tzion Virushalayim’ which means: ‘May the G-d, A-l-mighty, comfort among mourners of Zion and Yerushalayim!!!’…”

 

 

There has been a Fund set-up by different organizations and individuals, so, if you’d like to contribute to this Jewish community relief fund, click here.”

While we are saddened by the tragedy of these brutal murderers, we MUST stand strong and say:

 

“Hashem! Ad-Mosai???         We WANT Moshiach, NOW!!!”

 

It is a Miracle and by Divine Providence that their baby son who has NOT even become 3 was saved by the maid and the cook as they slipped-out of the building!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There have been some more names that we found, among the countless, other precious Jewish souls whose whereabouts are still unknown…

 

We ask that you continue your efforts of prayers for them and we ask you that you would Please say Tehillim (Psalm) Chapter 20 for (the English translation is on the bottom):

 

We still urge, EVRYONE to say Tehillim for the rest of the Jewish people finding themselves in the area which G-d forbid, may still, Rachamana Litzlan be in the harm’s way in other places in the world:

1. For the conductor, a song of David.

3. May He send your aid from His sanctuary, and may He support you from Zion.

 

 

 

 

 

4. May He remember all your meal offerings and may He accept your fat burnt offerings forever.

 

 

 

 

5. May He give you as your heart [desires], and may He fulfill all your counsel.

8. These trust in chariots and these in horses, but we-we mention the name of the L-o-rd our G-o-d.

 

 

 

 

 

9. They kneel and fall, but we rise and gain strength.

 

 

 

 

 

 

10. O L-o-rd, save [us]; may the King answer us on the day we call.

 

 

 

 

Mumbai’s Chabad House, situated near the sites of destruction, is a popular stop for Israeli tourists. The Holtzbergs offer a host of programs, including providing kosher food, to locals and visitors alike.

 

 

We hope and pray that we will hear good news very soon.

May Hashem answer our prayers and I will share good news when I have it.

BS”D



With GREAT heartache and sadness, we have been informed through many NEWS agencies that as for now, it SEEMS like the Shluchim of the Rebbe, Rabbi Gavriel and Rivka Holtzberg (the emessaries of the Lubavitcher Rebbe to Mumbai in India), have been murdered by the vicious murderers.


Boruch Dayan Hoemes!!!


May G-d, A-l-mighty, avenge the bloods of those holy individuals!!!

According to CrownHeights.INFO, the NEWS piece is as follows:


Boruch Dayan Hoemes – Shluchim Rabbi Gavriel and Rivka Holtzberg OBM


Rabbi Gavriel and Rivka Holtzberg, the beloved directors of Chabad-Lubavitch of Mumbai, were killed during one of the worst terrorist attacks to strike India in recent memory.


Jewish communities around the world reacted with shock to the loss of the couple, who were killed Thursday at their Chabad House during an apparent standoff between Indian military forces and terrorists.


Their toddler son, Moshe, managed to escape with his nanny some hours before Indian commandos stormed their building, known as the Nariman House, in the popular touristy neighborhood of Colaba. The Associated Press reported that the boy was unharmed, but was wearing blood-soaked pants.


Levaya information will be posted as soon as it becomes available.

Boruch Dayan Hoemes”.

Baruch Dayan Emet. Hashem Yekon Damom.

It is a Miracle and by Divine Providence that their baby son who has NOT even become 3 was saved by the maid and the cook as they slipped-out of the building!!!

We ask that you continue your efforts of prayers for them and we ask you that you would Please say Tehillim (Psalm) Chapter 20 for (the English translation is on the bottom):


· Rabbi Teitelbaum (Aryeh Leibish ben Elta Nechama Maltshi)

· Rabbi Chroman (Bentzion ben Elka)

  • Moshe Tzvi Ben Rivkah (the Shluchim’s young son)

We still urge, EVRYONE to say Tehillim for the rest of the Jewish people finding themselves in the area which G-d forbid, may still, Rachamana Litzlan be in the harm’s way:


Therefore, we are, again, posting the Tehillim as follows:


The English translated text is as follows (We thank Chabad.org for this text):

2. May the L-o-rd answer you on a day of distress; may the name of the G-o-d of Jacob fortify you.

10. O L-o-rd, save [us]; may the King answer us on the day we call.


We have found the following NEWS release which includes a short Obituary about the Shluchim to Mumbai, (A”H) on Chabad.org which we are sharing with you:


“As the day wore on Friday in Mumbai, with no resolution at hand to what is now called by local news outlets as India’s worst terrorist attack in history, people worldwide anxiously awaited word on the fate of Rabbi Gavriel and Rivka Holtzberg and others held hostage in their Chabad-Lubavitch center. Prayers continued around the clock, and a fund was established to help relief efforts in Mumbai at www.ChabadIndia.org.


Concurring reports indicated that at least one American rabbi and one Israeli rabbi, both kosher supervisors who had traveled to Mumbai on business, were in the Chabad House when suspected Islamic terrorists took the building by force Wednesday night local time. Other reports from news organizations and field personnel say that as many as 10 people could be in the Chabad House, not including anywhere from two to five gunmen.


The Holtzbergs arrived in Mumbai in 2003 to serve the small local Jewish community, visiting businesspeople and the throngs of tourists, many of them Israeli, who annually travel to the seaside city.


Gavriel Holtzberg, 29, was born in Israel and moved to the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn, N.Y., with his parents when he was nine. A prodigious student, Holtzberg was a two-time champion in a competition of memorizing the Mishnah, a compendium of rabbinical enactments redacted in the second century C.E.


He studied at yeshivas in New York and Argentina, and as a rabbinical student served communities in Thailand and China under the Summer Rabbinical Visitation Program run by Merkos L’Inyonei Chinuch, the educational arm of Chabad-Lubavitch.


His 28-year-old wife, born Rivkah Rosenberg, is a native of Afula, Israel. Chayki Rosenberg described her sister as dedicated to helping Jews.


She “gives lots of classes for women at the Chabad House,” Rosenberg told The Jerusalem Post.


Friends described her as always having a positive outlook and a kind word for everyone.


Two years ago, the Holtzbergs raised funds to purchase the current location of the Chabad House, a five-story building in Mumbai’s Colaba market area known as Narimon House. They operate a synagogue, teach Torah classes, provide drug rehabilitation services, and host scores of people for weekly Shabbat meals. A trained ritual circumciser and slaughterer, the rabbi also conducts weddings for local Jewish couples.


The last word heard from the couple came in the form of a phone call the rabbi placed to the Israeli Consulate shortly after the beginning of the attacks. The line went dead in the middle of the conversation. Based on the accounts attributed to the nanny who escaped to safety with the Holtzbergs’ toddler son Moshe, the couple and at least two others were believed to be unconscious.


Shots Fired at Chabad House

Beginning in the early morning Friday, Indian commandos began a full-fledged assault on the Chabad House, with troops airlifted in by helicopter while snipers trained their sites through windows from locations surrounding the building. Footage broadcast by IBN, CNN’s affiliate network in India, showed a person waving what appeared to be a Jewish prayer shawl from a mid-floor window after the military assault began.


As of 3:30 p.m. local time, the military was reported to be in control of the upper two floors of the building and working their way downward. Numerous shots and apparent grenade explosions rang out throughout the day.


News reports placed the death toll in the crisis at more than 125, with more than 327 people injured. The attacks began when suspected Islamic terrorists came ashore near the Gateway to India monument carrying plastic explosives, grenades and machine guns and quickly fanned out to a restaurant, the Chabad House, several luxury hotels, a hospital and two train stations.


On Friday morning, the Associated Press reported that Lt. Gen. N. Thamburaj held a press conference about security operations aimed at retaking the hotels and the Chabad House.


“It’s just a matter of a few hours that we’ll be able to wrap up things,” said the general.
