Mishloach Manot 5778

FTJC has set up an easy way for you to send mishloach manot — gifts of food and drink that are sent to family and friends — while supporting your synagogue at the same time.

Mishloach Manot Basket with goodiesHere is how it works:

  • Each FTJC member household will receive one package, with a card listing the names of those who have signed up as sponsors.
  • Each package will contain a variety of foods including hamentaschen (all packages will be peanut and nut free!).
  • The deadline for signups is Sunday, February 25th, 2018.
  • Mishloach Manot packages will be distributed at our Purim celebrations on Wednesday night, February 28th.

PURIM HALACHAH

Please note that the halachah of mishloach manot is to send and receive these gifts from one particular person or household to another, and during the daytime. So in addition to participating in our shul’s communal gifting, you may want to be sure that you or your family also send a gift, of at least two kinds of food to at least one person, during Purim day (Thursday, March 1st) — this can be a fun and more personalized way of fulfilling the mitzvah!
