Temple Emanu-El in Sandy Springs recently held its annual Purim Carnival to celebrate Purim, a Jewish holiday that honors the Jews being saved from Haman, an Achaemenid Empire of Persia official who was planning to kill all the Jews, as recounted in the Bible. The event also taught children about social justice by giving participants the chance to add foodstuff items at different activity (mitzvah) stations into packages donated by the synagogue’s partner, The Packaged Good. Beneficiaries included several local nonprofits and schools. About 600 attendees helped pack nearly 1,000 bags of food.
