Fulfilling the Mitzvot of Purim

There are 2 special "giving" mitzvot on Purim, Misloach Manot/gifts to friends and Matanot LaEvyonim/gifts to the needy.  Both originate in the Megillah (Book of Esther) and help us share the happiness of the holiday.  Sending gifts to friends and family increases love and friendship within our community while making gifts to the needy elevates those in difficult situations.
 
These mitzvot align with the mission of the Beth Ahm Sisterhood.  We strive to build community within our synagogue while helping those outside the congregation.
 
Please help us fulfill our mission by performing these mitzvot through a special tzedakah project.  On your behalf, the Sisterhood will send a festive Purim greeting card to your friends and family within the synagogue.  A portion of your tzedakah will be given to Yad Ezra for hunger relief.  The remainder will be used by the Sisterhood to advance all the work we do at Beth Ahm and in the larger community.
 
Participating is simple.  Click here to view the Beth Ahm membership list.  Then, send an email to bahmsisterhood@gmail.com with a list of names to whom you want a card sent.
 
  • For a donation of $5, a card will be mailed to one household.
  • For a donation of $36, cards will be mailed to 10 households.
  • For a donation of $50, cards will be mailed to 25 households.
  • For a donation of $100, a card will be mailed to every household in the Beth Ahm family.
 
To participate, your response is required by Friday, March 8th Checks and credit cards accepted.  Your check, made payable to the Beth Ahm Sisterhood, can be mailed to the synagogue office.  Or, to donate with a credit card, use the Venmo App @BethAhm-Sisterhood.

We hope that you will participate in this project and fulfill the mitzvot of Purim while supporting the Beth Ahm Sisterhood.
