Purim Basket Gift Exchange

One of the important mitzvah observances for the holiday of Purim is the sending of food gift packages to one another, to emphasize the importance of Jewish unity and friendship. This practice is called Mishloach Manot.

Chabad of Port Washington is gearing up for its annual community wide Mishloach Manot project. Here’s how it works:

Each Chabad Member, Preschool & Hebrew School family will receive one Mishloach Manot gift package. With each package, you will receive a card listing all names of those families who donated in your honor and asked to be listed on your card. This is a very nice way to show friendship and appreciation to the teachers, classmates and friends within the Chabad PW community, without the need to send them an individual basket. (Please note: participation in this project does NOT exempt one from the mitzvah of actually sending at least one gift package on Purim day itself).

• $5.00 entitles you to one mishloach manot package.
• $10.00 entitles you to two mishloach manot packages.
• $75.00 entitles you to eighteen mishloach manot packages.
• $180.00 entitles you to be listed on every package for the entire Chabad of PW Community.
• $18.00 Mishloach Manot package for an IDF Soldier in Israel.

To sign up for any of the above, please CLICK HERE to fill out the form.

Mishloach Manot packages will be distributed up to a week prior to Purim. Children attending the Florence Brownstein Preschool and Chabad Hebrew School will bring their packages home from school. The remainder of the packages will be delivered by volunteers directly to your homes. If you are interested in being a volunteer, please check off the volunteer box on the form.

Because of the tremendous amount of work involved in this undertaking, all requests should be received by Monday, February 8, 2021. We thank you, in advance, for your involvement and cooperation with this deadline.
Wishing you a happy Purim,

Sara Paltiel and Leah Tobin
