Mishloach Manot for Purim 2019
What is this wonderful holiday of Purim all about? A few fun facts….
When is Purim day this year?
March 20-22, 2019 or 13-15 Adar 5779
What do we do?
We send a ‘portion’ or Schlach Manos. We send them to family or friends on Purim day and we do so during daylight on Purim
What kind of food do we send?
Kosher Hamantaschen, Kosher Fudge, Kosher Juice either Grape or fruit juice – snack foods, wine, fruit
Some say that there should be 2 foods with 2 different blessings – The Kosher Hub has a greeting card and a blessing over Hamantashen and or fruit
Why do we do it?
It’s a Mitzvah and is found in the Book of Ester
To make sure that everyone has enough food and to increase love and friendship among Jews and Neighbors
The purpose is to ‘increase peace and friendship’
It is also a time to give to charity
What makes up a wonderful Mishloach Manot pack?
Children over the age of 6 or 7 can send to their friends in preparation for their Bar Mitzvah
We send it via a third person – so that’s where The Kosher Hub can help!
