Purim Project 2016

The holiday of Purim is fast approaching on March 24th. One of the Mitzvot of Purim is for members of a community to send food baskets one to another. This Mitzvah emphasizes that as a community we share each other’s joy and have a responsibility for each other’s well-being. This Mitzvah is called "Mishloach Manot" [literally: sending food baskets].

This year the Ocala & The Villages community can again participate in a "Shalach Manot" Gift Basket exchange.

This service makes Shalach Manot simple, easy and affordable. You will be able to send a beautiful Shalach Manos basket, hassle free, to as many friends and family as you wish. If you haven’t yet taken upon yourself this mitzvah, now would be an opportune time. Take advantage of this service to bring your family and friends closer over the holiday.

The deadline for ordering is Tuesday March 22nd.

Here is how it works:

Step One: Click here to find a list of names to whom you may want to send a purim gift to.
If you cannot find a certain name please let us know and we will add their name to the list.

Step Two: Fill out the purim gift form with all your information. Click here to fill out the form

The cost for the first 3 names is $25 dollars. Each additional name will be $5 dollars.

We also offer the "Reciprocate Service", which will automatically add to your list, the people who are sending you a basket which you did not include. (This provides you with a special "insurance" policy.) You will be billed separately for this service at $4 per name.

Become a Shalach Manot Benefactor! Your donation of $180 or more will entitle you to send to as many people as you choose. This is an easy and terrific way to support the Jewish community and all the programs we offer.

You are doing a great mitzvah, fostering meaningful connections within our own community, giving tzedakah and having fun whilst doing so.
