Purim 5752 Programs

Purim 5772 (2012) was celebrated on Wednesday evening, March 7, and Thursday, March 8. The students of the Rabbinical College of Australia & New Zealand brought the joy of Purim to a wide variety of businesses, eateries, residencies, hospitals, old age homes, markets, schools, childcare centres and prisons. They also assisted and participated in various events conducted by local synagogues, Chabad Houses and community organizations. Aside from hearing Megillah, the commandments of Purim include Mishloach Manos (gifts of food), Matanos L'evyonim (giving charity), and participating in a joyous feast.

A tally of the students’ efforts yielded the following results:
Number of Mishloach Manos packages: 1,100
Number of Megillah readings: Approximately 85
Number of attendees at these Megillah readings: More than 1,000
Number of people who fulfilled Matanos L’evyonim: More than 50
Number of people who donned Tfillin: More than 200
Number of Purim parties: 40
