Celebrate Freedom the Kosher Way with Purim Gifts from Gift Baskets Overseas
World renowned gift delivery company Gift Baskets Overseas invites the world to celebrate victory against oppression with sweet treats, fine foods, and delicious drinks—all guaranteed to meet the strictest dietary laws—for Purim this year.
Purim is celebrated each year on the 14th day of the Hebrew month of Adar (during leap years it is Second Adar or Adar II); this year the celebration will begin at sundown on Sunday, February 28, 2010 and will last two full days until March 1, 2010. This day of Purim, or “lots,” is observed in memory of the day after justice prevailed over the enemies of the Jewish people during the time that they lived under the rule of King Ahasuerus of the Persian Empire. As it is recorded in the Book of Esther, Haman, the vizier to the king, plotted against the Hebrew people and tricked his king into allowing him to murder them all. According to the story, Haman was allowed to cast lots to determine the day that his evil plan would come to fruition. But Esther, the King’s wife, who was secretly Jewish, foiled Haman’s plans, exposed him for the unjust person he was, and replaced him with her own cousin, Mordecai.
In memory of Esther’s bravery, victory over oppression, and God’s deliverance of the Hebrew people, Purim is a day full of bright clothing and costumes, dancing, and Kosher feasts. In addition, people remember the story through public readings of the Book of Esther as well as by remembering those who are in need. Jewish tradition mandates that on Purim everyone should send at least two gifts of food and sweets to people who are less fortunate than themselves. This year Gift Baskets Overseas is making sure there is no excuse not to celebrate this amazing moment in history by offering delightful confections and guaranteeing compliance with Kosher laws in their stunning Purim gift baskets.
“This Purim we’re offering Kosher foods, delicious sweets, and wonderful gifts to people in the U.S. and Israel so they can spend their time sharing costumes, feasting, and reading the Book of Esther rather than worrying about how their gifts are getting where they’re going,” says David Skol, Chief Gift Officer at Gift Baskets Overseas. “We want to bring people closer together—even if they are on opposite ends of the earth—by sharing gift-giving practices and making it easy to participate in them. This year we’re offering a wide selection of delicious, fun, and Kosher gift baskets. We invite everyone to send gifts to their Jewish—and even non-Jewish—friends;
