On Purim we emphasize the importance of friendship and community by sending gifts of food, mishloach manos, to friends.

Send a package containing at least two different ready-to-eat food items and/or beverages (e.g., pastry, fruit, beverage), to at least one Jewish acquaintance during the daylight hours of Purim. Men send to men and women to women.

It is preferable that the gifts are delivered via a third party. Children, in addition to sending their own gifts of food to their friends, make enthusiastic messengers.


Enter The Purim Project:

Purim Project is an innovative program designed to:

  • Help you in fulfilling the beautiful Mitzvah of "Mishloach Manot", sending food-gifts to your friends on Purim

  • Show your appreciation and care for fellow community members

  • Foster community unity

  • Help Chabad!

Each community member gets their own login information, which allows them to view a list of fellow community members and to select your own, personal list to whom you'd like to send Purim gift baskets. Chabad will deliver a gift to every member on that list, together with an attached note listing the name(s) (and personal greetings) of those who sponsored their Purim basket.
