Purim at Chabad

at Chabad East Lakeview
Purim : March 11–12, 2017
Message from the Rabbi
Purim at Chabad East Lakeview is a really happy and festive time where we celebrate the salvation of the Jewish people in ancient Persia.

Please join us at our main event and megillah reading. You can find more information about the holiday below.

To relive the miraculous events of Purim, listen to the reading of the megillah (the Scroll of Esther) twice: once on Purim eve, Saturday night, March 11, and again on Purim day, March 12.
Please Note: as in the past, Chabad is happy to assist those who are home bound by sending one of our volunteers to your home to read the Megillah. If you or someone you know would like to partake in this offer send us a email to: or call 773-495-7127

Give to the needy
Concern for the needy is a year-round responsibility; but on Purim it is a special mitzvah to remember the poor.

Give charity to at least two (but preferably more) needy individuals on Purim day, March 5.

If you are not able to find a poor person, we are able to facilitate this great mitzvah for you. Click donate below to send a donation that will be distributed on the day of Purim (note: this money will go directly to local families in need - not to chabad).
Send Food Portions to Friends
On Purim we emphasize the importance of Jewish unity and friendship by sending gifts of food to friends.

On Purim day, March 5, send a gift of at least two kinds of ready-to-eat foods (e.g., pastry, fruit, beverage) to at least one friend. Men should send to men, and women to women. It is preferable that the gifts be delivered via a third party. Children, in addition to sending their own gifts of food to their friends, make enthusiastic messengers.

Dear Friend,

How would it feel, if I said that YOU can have a direct hand and merit in bringing the Joy and Mitzvah of Purim to many Jew’s from every background and affiliation throughout the Lakeview!

Chabad East Lakeview serves the religious and the non-observant, the affiliated and non-affiliated, young and old and all in between. We reach out to all who are in need and assist them with their financial, emotional and religious needs; as well as serving the community at large by offering programs and classes for all ages. From toddlers to seniors, all have a place and feel welcome here.

We are committed to strengthening Jewish identity, unity and commitment. We cannot do this alone. We count on support from people known for their generosity, sincerity and sensitivity to the needs of all mankind.

Chabad is funded locally by people like you who benefit and respect the outreach efforts of our organization. 100% of funds donated are used here in Lakeview to support our activities. We are not supported by any central office.

My friend, I am turning to YOU. Be a partner in this incredible partnership for Purim 2017! No contribution is too big or too small
