Purim Project

Mishloach Manot Program

 

Purim is coming … and so are the baskets!

 

Once again, Temple Rodeph Torah’s Men’s Club is pleased to help you fulfill the
special mitzvah of sending out Mishloach Manot packages.

Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to connect with your friends,
classmates 
and others within the TRT community!

Please join with all of us at TRT in this joyous Mitzvah!

Purim is just around the corner! This year, Purim begins Wednesday evening, March 20, 2019

On Purim, we commemorate the heroism of Queen Esther and her cousin Mordecai who saved the Jewish people from destruction.  To celebrate this joyous holiday, it is customary to perform the special mitzvah of sending gifts of food to friends and family called Mishloach Manot.

The Temple Rodeph Torah Men’s Club and Sisterhood have found a fun way to help you fulfill this mitzvah, surprise old friends, and connect with other Temple members you perhaps don’t know as well.  Via a simple-to-use online system, you will be able to send Purim greetings to other families at TRT.

For a very modest cost, we will prepare a beautiful package of Purim goodies. Attached to each package of goodies will be a list of all the families that contributed towards that family’s basket.
