Darchei Noam is again sending Mishloach Manot packages to our students and young people. If you would like to send a package, please notify Paulette Donath at email@example.com, and send the $18 fee per package to her at 4200 Sunset Blvd, SLP, 55416. We are planning on mailing the packages next , so please let us know ASAP. We regret that we are not able to send to kids outside the U.S. If you have any questions, please call Linda Maach at 952-200-1982.
If you get too much mishloach manot, remember that unneeded mishloach manot can be donated. March is Minnesota Food Share month, when a special effort is made to restock food shelves, including our local STEP. Darchei Noam will be collecting donations of non-perishable foods, in the box labeled for STEP in the shul lobby. Donations, including chametz, will continue to be collected up to erev Pesach. Monetary donations to STEP are always important to purchase items that cannot be donated, (e.g., fresh produce, meats, etc.).
A shout-out to the kids who helped residents of the Sholom Home make Purim groggers! We had a very fun and rewarding morning, and it was so wonderful to see the seniors' faces light up as they made groggers and spent time with our youth. Yasher koach to Rivka and Nechama Buchbinder, Rachel and Yoni Potter, Sofie Geretz, and Yonit Krebs. And... a special thank you to Jack Bass who facilitated!
