WHAT IS MISHLOACH MANOT?
Mishloach Manot (meesh-LOW-ach mah-NOTE) also called a Purim basket, are gifts of food or drink that are sent to family, friends and others on Purim (/poo-rim/) day. The mitzvah of giving mishloach manot comes from the Book of Esther. It is meant to ensure that everyone has enough food for the Purim feast held later in the day, and to increase love and friendship among Jews and their neighbors. Mishloach Manot brings peace and harmony and shows the unity of a community. Sending a basket is a fantastic opportunity to let your family, friends, teachers, staff, and business associates know how much you appreciate them!
Baskets will be available for pick up via drive-by at Kol Tikvah on Thursday, February 25 from 3:45 pm to 6:30 pm and Friday, February 26 from 10:00am to 11:30am.
