Purim - Inspiring Our Family Life
Speaker:   Hauer, Rabbi Moshe
Series: Purim
Lecture Details:  Two of the central mitzvos of Purim are matanos le'evyonim (gifts to the poor) and mishloach manos (gifts to friends). The Rambam writes that the most important mitzva on Purim is not the seudah (feast) or mishloach manos, but matanos le'evyonim. We might think this is because giving to the poor is the most virtuous of the mitzvos, but this is not his reasoning. The Rambam explains that the thing that gives a person the most joy is giving to others. When we bring joy to someone else, we are using the piece inside of us which is domeh l'shechina (similar to G-d) to imitate His ways. Hashem is the Ultimate Giver, and we aim to be like Him. This is a concept which we can apply to our family lives as well, using this attribute of giving to bring the Shechina into our relationships. We hope to use the day of Purim to be givers, and to uplift ourselves with the rich taste of the joy of bringing happiness to others.
