Mishloach Manot for Holocaust Survivors

2012-02-18 Mishloach Manot 021713 004The mitzvah of giving mishloach manot is spelled out in the Book of Esther, which enjoins the Jewish people to observe the days of Purim “as days of feasting and gladness, and sending portions of food to one another.”

On Sunday, Feb 17, Boston 3G helped fulfill this mitzvah by putting together mishloach manot packages for local Holocaust Survivors, ensuring that each Holocaust survivor knows that they are being thought of and loved during this time.

We had a great group of 3G volunteers on hand to assemble the packages and received a warm response from the survivor community upon receipt of the package.

Check out photos from the day!
