Matanot L’evyonim, Gifts to the Needy

The Megillah tells us that on Purim, we should give gifts to the needy (matanot l’evyonim). Fulfill that mitzvah by assembling a personal hygiene kit before or after the Purim family celebration in the social hall on Monday, March 6. Kits will be donated to Small Things Matter on Purim day.  

Purim Tzedakah

The Tzedakah Havurah will have canisters available for your donations during Purim services. You can also donate online to the Tzedakah Havurah or directly to the charities by viewing this flyer to access their web/donation pages.

Mishloach Manot

Thank you to the Women’s Network for assembling more than 300 mishloach manot – one for every TI family! Those who made arrangements to pick up their Purim box from TI can do so during normal office hours or on Erev Purim. Thank you to the many volunteers who delivered mishloach manot all over town.

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Manna Food Center to support the Women’s League “Stock the Shelves” anti-hunger initiative. If you would like to contribute, please make a donation to the Women’s Network and put “Mishloach Manot” in the notes.

Sunflower Bakery Hamentashen Delivery

If you ordered Hamentashen from Sunflower Bakery, they will be available to pickup at TI on Monday, March 6.
