Torah Academy High’s Purim fundraising drive
Purim, which begins on the night of February 28 is held to commemorate how Queen Esther saved the Jews of Persia.
It is traditional for Jews to send gifts on Purim and to dress up, as Queen Esther and her uncle Mordechai, did to hide their identity. We also read the Book of Esther and eat hamantashen – literally translated as “Haman’s ears”.
Torah Academy Girls are selling a variety of gifts ranging in price from R30 to R1 000. The presentation packages include Israeli kosher products like biscuits, sweets and grape juice. There is also top-quality luggage and handbags for sale, and the deluxe and premium packages come with wine or whisky.
