Purim 2020 Fundraiser!

 

Mishloach  Manot (Purim gift bags)

Sending food gifts is one of the four mitzvot performed on Purim. It is a heartfelt way to emphasize the Jewish unity that lies at the core of the Purim holiday. 

It's a Mitzvah! It's great fun and with B’nai Jacob, it's easier than ever and it's our biggest fundraiser! 

Here’s how it works
For a donation of $154, you can participate in the sending of mishloach manot (Purim gift bags) to all members of the congregation.  Every family will receive one Purim-themed gift bag, personally delivered, filled with delicious holiday treats, along with a scroll (card) that lists all the people who participated in this project using their names as they appear on their B'nai Jacob account. For your name to appear differently on the scroll (ie. 'The Taylor Family', instead of 'Judy and Mark Taylor'), email Judy

You can also order additional mishloach manot (Purim gift bags), which can be picked-up or shipped or you may purchase a Purim gift bag to donate to JFS (Jewish Family Service).

ALL ORDERS MUST BE SUBMITTED BY MONDAY MARCH 2 AT NOON!

BJ Players Presents

: A group of quirky kids with a passion for spelling and wildly entertaining back-stories have flocked to Putnam Valley Middle School to compete (and sing!) in the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. As the words tested become more difficult and the spellers get eliminated one by one, friendships are formed and the characters’ inner troubles and hilarious backstories are slowly revealed.
 
Our own Cantor Malachi Kanfer will be the show’s Musical Director.
Cindy Gerber and Susan Jacobs will serve as Co-Directors.

Performance dates: 
Thursday, April 2 - Dress Rehearsal
   Saturday, April 4 - Opening night!
