Coastside Jewish Community Gives Shalach Manos (Gifts) for Puente

The Jewish holiday of Purim tells the story of Mordechai and Queen Esther and how they helped save the Jewish people from the hands of the wicked Haman. Purim is a day special friendship is shown to friends and where special gifts (Shalach Manos — gifts of charity) are given to those less fortunate. The Religious School at Coastside Jewish Community collected toys, books, toiletries and more for the children and farmworkers served by Puente and presented them to executive director, Kerry Lobel
