Mishloach Manot 5781

Purim starts the evening of Thursday, February 25th! On this festive holiday there are four Mitzvot that the Jewish people should fulfill: reading/listening to the Megillah Esther, sending Mishloach Manot, or gift baskets, the Seudah, or festive meal, and Matanot La'evyonim, giving to the poor.

The tradition of sending Mishloach Manot comes from the Book of Esther and is meant to ensure that everyone can enjoy the traditional Purim feast. Literally, the “sending of portions,” Mishloach Manot (Hebrew) or Shalach Manos (Yiddish) is the Mitzvah of sending gifts of food to others in our community at Purim. In fulfillment of this Mitzvah, Kol Ami solicits contributions that enable us to provide those special Purim treats. Any donations above and beyond the costs of the bags will be donated our joint Kol Ami & Utah Food Bank Mobile Pantry Project.

Fulfill the Mitzvot of Mishloach Manot (sending gifts) and Matanot La'evyonim (giving to the poor) as we raise funds to send Purim goodies to each member household and additional funds to support the joint Kol Ami & Utah Food Bank Mobile Pantry Project!

Levels of Giving

 I/We wish to make a donation and would prefer to receive a note instead of a gift bag.
