Ohev Sholom!


Purim 2017 / Mishloach Manot Fundraiser

Adar’s around the corner, Chag Purim awaits,
A festive opportunity when Ohev celebrates.
So get your graggers ready, your costumes in place
Think you can out do the Herzfelds? Nah, trying’s just a waste!

Through our annual shul-wide Mishloach Manot
You’ll do so much more than just send friends a note.
Your donations support our weekly Seudah Shelishit
And make sure on Shabbat there’s plenty to eat.

And as the kid’s grow and need more to do
We’re able to buy new equipment, it’s true.
When you give to this project, you’re helping us all
And making our shul even more exceptional!

And wait, there’s more! Something delicious for your table,
While showing support for the differently-abled.
Mishloach Manot with a Sunflower Bakery twist,
A scrumptious giving opportunity not to be missed!

How it works:
For just $7 per recipient, you can participate in the sending of a festive gift to anyone on our membership list.  Or, by making a generous donation of $360 you may choose as many names as you wish. Please note: If you have already joined one of our Annual Giving Plans, you will automatically be included at the maximum level! If you have not yet confirmed your 2017 Annual Giving Plan with Executive Director Sarah Shapiro, please contact her at

Every member household will receive one gift package available for pickup at Ohev Sholom on Purim.

Chag Purim Sameach,
