Purim Project

Mishloach Manot Program

Purim is just around the corner! This year it begins Wednesday evening, February 28, 2018.

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.

For a very modest cost, we will prepare a beautiful package of Purim goodies, attached to which will be a list of all the families that contributed towards it.

On February 5, we sent a special email to all Temple Members inviting you to participate. This email included a special link to a personalized page. Click that link, and you’ll be able to make your selections. If you didn’t receive your email, please contact purimbaskets@trt.org
