We ask each Temple member to bring in a box of macaroni and cheese to  use as a grogger  during  all of  Temple Israel’s Purim services.
This food will then be donated to HOPE Community Services.

Purim is a holiday for laughter, costumes, noisemakers and giving treats. Mishloach Manot is the Purim Mitzvah of sending small gifts, usually of food, to friends, neighbors and the community.

Surprise your friends and family with Mishloach Manot gift bags. Each decorated package contains an assortment of Kosher candy and snacks, hamentaschen, and a grogger. Please also consider donating Mishloach Manot to the United Hebrew or Sarah Neuman Nursing Home.

Why should you purchase Mishloach Manot this year?
• It is a Mitzvah to gift baskets of food to family and friends.
• Mishloach Manot sales are an important fundraiser for Chavaya.

Click to order Mishloach Manot this year and support Temple Israel of New Rochelle by Friday, February 17th!
