We are rapidly approaching the joyous holiday of Purim (March 16-17). 

On Purim, we emphasize the importance of Jewish unity and friendship by sending food gifts to family and friends.

Although this project has been ongoing for so many years, it takes on a whole new meaning this year. As the pandemic continues, this annual project which has always brought such a sense of friendship, connection, community and goodwill, will be so much more meaningful. Giving us each an opportunity to send a "virtual hug" to each other.

Ironically, our last grand, public, in-person celebration was our Roaring 20’s Purim Party last year. Due to current COVID restrictions, many parts of Purim will be celebrated very differently this year. However, this project can not only stay the same, it will be even bigger, better and more impactful. The more of us that participate, the wider the community hug will be.

The theme of Purim is Community. In addition to hearing the Megillah, the Purim traditions are fulfilled through uniting and sharing with others. The festive meal, the giving of charity, and the gifts of food baskets to friends.

We would like to inspire EVERYONE to unite in this opportunity to be included in the giving (and receiving) of Shalach Manot. To accomplish this, we are asking that each family gives a donation of $180. This will put your family name on our “Givers List”. This “Givers List” will be included in EVERY Shalach Manot basket we distribute. So, by donating $180 you are able to give a gift to everyone who chooses to be included in this initiative.

Now, we know that GIVING is also the greatest way to RECEIVE, so everyone on the Givers list will also be receiving a Shalach Manot basket. By doing the Mitzvah in this way, we are able to unite our community, and ensure that everyone has an opportunity to be included in this unique mitzvah in a meaningful way!
