Purim 2005

I walked to the grocery store thursday and it was purim. the feast of esther (not easter).. the kids were dressed in costume and there were parties in the catering halls.. THere were cars of hasids going and coming and celebrating

Friday (good friday) i was on my way to a meeting in Manhattan.. I was very aware it wsas good friday but it was also purim... I ran into lubavitch youth who were delivering shalach munos- they offered me a box and when i said i didnt need it.. they sked me to distribute it and asked for coins for the charity box. i fished coins from my pocket and then at my ACS meeting, i passed on parts of the gift package i received.. they fulfilled their mission and i fulfilled my religious obligation
