Purim Is a Time to Give Back

The P2G Culinary Mission to Israel and Mamanet are coming together to celebrate Purim with the Holocaust Survivors by packaging and sending them Mishloach Manot. Mishloach Manot, also known as Purim baskets, have two main functions — to instill harmony and love in the Jewish people and to remind ourselves that as we celebrate the holiday of Purim we should consider those less fortunate.  The group will be packaging Manot for Holocaust Survivors living here in Columbus.

To fill the baskets, the group is asking the community to provide: tea bags, chocolates, jellies, crackers, cans of tuna and other non-perishables items through a drive. All items must be sealed and have a kosher symbol on the package. Please NO hard candies, toffee, or nuts.

Drop off locations will be provided at: JewishColumbus, 1175 College Ave., East side JCC and preschool, 1125 College Ave., Columbus Jewish Day School, 150 E Dublin Granville Rd in New Albany and the JCC North Preschool/Beth Tikvah, 6121 Olentangy River Rd in  Worthington, until March 7, 2019.

If you have any questions about the project, please contact Stephanie at stephanie@JewishColumbus.org.
