Chabad of Arlington & The Mid-Cities Presents:

The Purim Project  

 Mishloach Manot - Muchnik

Purim is one of the most joyous and meaningful holidays on the Jewish calendar. On Purim, we emphasize the importance of Jewish unity and friendship by sending gifts of food to friends and family. This is known as "Mishloach Manot".This year, Chabad of Arlington will once again be sponsoring shared Mishloach Manot gift boxes at a low cost so that as many community families as possible can participate in this special Mitzvah. Everyone in the community (not limited to the attached list) is invited to partake in this special Purim mitzvah. We will deliver Mishloach Manot to any family you choose in the area. Recipients will receive one package with a card listing all the names of friends/families that have sent Mishloach Manot to them. All proceeds will benefit Chabad’s community programs.

The Purim Project is designed to:

  • Help you in fulfilling the beautiful Mitzvah of "Mishloach Manot".
  • Show your appreciation and care for fellow community members.
  • Foster community unity.
  • Help Chabad!

Here’s how it works:

  • Your selection will most likely be grouped with other senders. The recipient will get one Purim gift package filled with Hamentashen and other Purim treats and a card listing the names of all the senders.
  • Carefully check off the families you wish to send a gift package to. Each name you choose from the attached list is only $10.
  • If you would like to send a Purim gift box to someone not on the attached list, you may do so by submitting their name and address on the attached form.
  • Avoid any hurt feelings with our “Reciprocity” option. If someone sent to you but you did not originally send to them, we will automatically add them to your list and bill you at $10 per box.
  • For a $180.00 sponsorship, your name will be placed on every Purim Mishloach Manot Package.
  • Our volunteers will deliver all Purim gift boxes ordered or reciprocated in the area by Purim, March 5th, 2015.

Each community member will receive an email* with their own login credentials, which will allow them to view a list of fellow community members and select to whom they would like to send Purim gift baskets. Chabad will deliver a gift to every member on that list, together with an attached note listing the name(s) (and personal greetings) of those who sponsored their Purim basket.
