One of the mitzvot of Purim is Michloach Manot – a basket of goodies exchanged amongst friends, families and neighbours. The book of Esther, instructs us to send gifts to each other at the time of Purim. These baskets contain at least 2 types of food, usually including hamantaschen, and other sweet treats, fruit, candy, etc.
It is traditional do deliver Mishloach Manot on the day of Purim, which is February 25th. Please plan to deliver your michloach manot between February 21-25 so that it can be enjoyed as part of Purim festivities.
If your family would like to participate in this mitzvah for Purim, join our Mystery Mordechai Michloach Manot! Families will ‘put their name in the hat’ by filling out the simple registration form. You will then receive the name of a Holy Blossom family to prepare and deliver a basket to, and your family will receive one!
Register here. Once you register, you will receive an email with guidelines of what should be included in your Michloach Manot basket. This is a great opportunity to be creative – everyone in the house can add something! In addition to the food items, pictures, jokes or other craft items are a great addition.
Families must register to participate by THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 11th. You will receive the name of your ‘Mystery Mordechai’ recipient by February 16th.
