A Beloved Purim Tradition Comes to RS – “Mishloach Manot

Sending gifts of delicious treats to family and friends is one of the mitzvot of celebrating Purim, and for many people it is one of the most anticipated Jewish holiday traditions of the year.  Now we are bringing this wonderful tradition, called “mishloach manot,” to Rodeph Shalom!  Our mishloach manot will be colorful bags filled with hamentashen and other tasty treats. All proceeds will be used to benefit programming and experiential learning at Berkman Mercaz Limud.

Ordering is simple! Go to www.HappyPurim.com and enter a special log in code that was emailed to you. Please contact Renee Carl if you have questions about the ordering process.

Everyone who receives a mishloach manot can pick it up at Rodeph Shalom on Sunday, March 8 during the Purim Carnival, or Monday evening, March 9 during Erev Purim celebrations.
