Happy Purim!

purim-mask-aniOn Purim it is traditional to give tzedakah to worthy causes and to send portions of food (mishloach manot) to your friends. You can fulfill two mitzvahs at once by ordering through the Hebrew Tabernacle Hebrew School. Your friends will receive lovely assortments of baked goods, fruit, candy and nuts.

Each package is sent anonymously with a card saying it's from a "Friend of the Hebrew School". (NOTE: Some of our Hamantaschen that will be baked in the HT kitchen by congregants will be kosher. In addition, some of our volunteer bakers have kosher kitchens, so specially marked kosher packages are available upon request.) We also offer a Deluxe bag which includes more of everything as well as juice and fresh fruit. The Deluxe bag comes with a card identifying the sender(s).

We are asking that you pick up your bag at the Purim Carnival, Sunday March 5th between 12 noon and 4 pm. We will be able to deliver bags within walking distance of Hebrew Tabernacle and also to Inwood. Come to our booth at the Purim carnival to pick up your order, or to see if someone has been able to deliver it for you! If you are willing to deliver a bag to a neighbor, please check if there are any bags for your building when you pick up your bag, or note it on your order form.

Help make our fund-raiser a success: If you'd like to make an additional contribution to help with distribution of mishloach manot, your generosity will be put to good use. Every year we deliver packages to nursing homes and to those who otherwise might be forgotten on this festive holiday.
