Mishloach Manot:
Gift Giving as a Form of Advocacy

How can the mitzvah of Mishloach Manot on Purim, be used as a tool for action and advocacy for the hostages?

Purim is the only Jewish Holiday where the story fully occurred outside of Israel. Where can we, as Jews who live in and outside of Israel, get inspiration from the story of Purim to motivate us to advocate for the Jewish people? What is the connection between giving and receiving gifts and celebration? How does the act of Mishloach Manot build community?
