Giving Mishloach Manot

E-mail

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