Shalach Manot - Purim Bags 2019

Once again we are continuing our sweet Mishloach Manot tradition (the sending of gift bags) at Nevei Kodesh in celebration of Purim. (In Yiddish this is referred to as "Shalach Manot.")

Everyone in the congregation receives a bag of Purim treats including homemade hamentaschen and other delectable goodies, along with a special greeting card signed by all the people who have sponsored the gifts.   "Receiving this special gift each year makes me feel cared for and important" a congregant reported.  

How It Works

• All member households, school families and staff receive a gift bag.  (If you do not wish to receive a gift bag, please complete the form and indicate this under delivery options.) 

• To have your name on everyone's card, select option below and donate $180.   (We automatically include the names of all adult members per household.  If you want your children's name on card, let us know that as well.)

• If you can't afford the full $180 but want your name on the card, you can select one of the other options of volunteer tasks in exchange for sliding fee scale donation.

If you don't want your name on the card but can help with baking hamantaschen or other volunteer tasks indicate that on form below.

• If you have any special dietary needs please be sure to fill out the form below even if not donating.

Baking Parties

Community members are encouraged to host Hamantaschen Baking Parties between now and Purim. (They freeze great – start early, bake often) These parties will be an opportunity to make new CNK friends, catch up with old friends, hear the latest news, learn how to bake hamantaschen, and have fun. To publicize a party, email with day, time, location, and number of people you can host. We’ll announce the parties in our emails and ask for RSVPs. Let us know on the forms how many hamantaschen (and what type) you will be baking.  Delivery of hamantaschen is by Tuesday, March 19, noon (so we are ready for assembly party Tuesday, March 19, 3-6 pm).

Please fill out form below to donate and/or let us know your hamantaschen and volunteer preferences
