PURIM CHESED OPPORTUNITIES:

3 DAYS 2 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 and to City Harvest. 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 Rabba Anat at rabbaanat@thebayit.org.

MISHLOACH MANOT MATCHING PROGRAM:

Sign up to be matched with a Bayit community member who would enjoy your company, bring them Mishloach Manot and pay a short visit to enjoy the true essence of this holiday. Feel encouraged to share your visit with a friend or a family member. To learn more, please contact Rabbi Ben Shefter at bshefter@gmail.com or Caryn Keller at carynkeller87@gmail.com.  You can sign up directly here.
