Mishloach Manot

What are Mishloach Manot?
Mishloach Manot are gifts of food and treats that friends give to friends and neighbors during the Jewish holiday of Purim. Our TI Mishloach Manot will include a Megillah, grogger, fresh-baked Hamantashen, and other sweet and traditional treats.

Why is it custom to give Mishloach Manot?
Derived from the book of Esther, the mitzvah of giving Mishloach Manot is to ensure that our friends and neighbors have enough food for a Purim feast and to spread love and friendship with a gift.

Help us fulfill this mitzvah and spread love and friendship on Purim!
We’re looking for sponsors and volunteers to help us make and deliver Mishloach Manot to EVERY Temple Israel member during Purim.

Sponsorship opportunity closes on Friday, February 14.
$1,000 – Queen Esther Sponsor
$500 – Mordechai Sponsor
$250 – Grogger Sponsor
$18 – Hamantashen Sponsor
Sponsor names will be showcased at their donation level on the Megillah (scroll) that will accompany all Mishloach Manot!

From baking delicious Hamantashen and stuffing Mishloach Manot bags, to personally delivering these delightful holiday gifts to Temple members, there are so many fun and fulfilling volunteer options. Make this a family affair and bake at TI with your spouse, older kids, or parents; come by yourself to mingle with friends and make new ones; or bring a friend and fulfill a mitzvah together!
