The Mac and Cheese Tradition of Purim

Just read this on an old friend’s blog (Hi Jason!), and I thought it was a fascinating way to do social justice as part of Purim (matanot l’evyonim (I.e. gifts to the poor)) and fulfill grogger fun at the same time:

After reading this, I plan on doing just this as my grogger… what a great idea.

For the full article, see Purim_Gragger

"Rabbi Menachem Creditor has shared a new Purim tradition that he learned from his teacher Marcia Brooks. She encourages people to bring boxes of Kosher pasta to synagogue to use as graggers (noise makers); shaking them for noise and then donating them to a food pantry once the Megillah is completed. With this new tradition, one fulfills the custom of drowning out the name of "Haman" from the Megillah reading while also performing the mitzvah of matanot l’evyonim."

Food for thought… (pun intended!)
