Purim

At Chabad of Stamford March 16-17 2022

purim in a nutshell

The festival of Purim commemorates the salvation of the Jewish people in ancient Persia from Haman’s plot “to destroy, kill and annihilate all the Jews, young and old, infants and women, in a single day.” It is celebrated with Megillah readings, gifts of food, charity, feasting, and merriment.

CHABAD OF STAMFORD`S ANNUAL PURIM PROJECT

It is a special Mitzvah to give gifts of food to friends, traditionally known as Mishloach Manot or Shalach Manos. For the 19th year, Chabad of Stamford and Gan Yeladim will be sharing our Shalach Manos Purim Project with the community.

This year 1000 homes in Stamford will receive a very special package for Purim Day. BE A PART OT IT! 

The purpose of Shalach Manos is friendship and connection - something we all need at this time! You select families from our member list that you would like to send a Shalach Manos Package and your name and personal greeting will be added on the greeting card that accompanies the gift. You can also choose from the option to pick up your Shalach Manos Gift and/or those of your friends and neighbors to spread the joy and unity in among your community
