PURIM CHESED OPPORTUNITIES:

3 Days 3 Ways: The 3 Days 3 Ways initiative was started by Charlotte Filer this year, supporting people facing food insecurity in NYC. In the spirit of Purim, please bring a small (but noisy!) box of pasta or rice (boxes only, no bags) to use as a grogger, and after Megillah reading drop it off in the bins located in the coat room. Charlotte will deliver the boxes to the Bronx Jewish Community Council. To make donations please contact Charlotte Filer at charlottelfiler@gmail.com. Let's make Purim this year about giving for good!

Megillah Reading for the Homebound: Do you know someone who may need the Megillah read for them at home? Can you offer to read the Megillah for someone in need? If so, please contact Rabbanit Bracha at rabbanitbracha@thebayit.org.

Mishloach Manot Matching Program: Sign up to be matched with a Bayit community member who would enjoy your company. In light of the current situation we are asking volunteers to do phone visits instead of in-person visits or mishloach manot. To learn more, please contact Caryn Keller at carynkeller87@gmail.com. You can sign up directly here.
