Mishenichnas Adar Marbin Besimcha
According to the amount of activity and the people involved, it seems that Purim is a seven-day holiday!
Thanks to Elisa Bash, Judith Light and Tzvia Kor, who organized the Matanot LaEvyonim and packages for the needy.
As in previous years the project was done together with our Bar and Bat Mitzvah children.
A huge thank you to all those who participated in the preparation and distribution of the packages.
Also to everyone who contributed to this important project.
It is worth mentioning that over 18,000 NIS was raised:
56 families received packages and more than 20 families received financial assistance. All on the day.
Thank you very much to the Purim committee that organized a wonderful party. According to the responses, everyone was excited and thoroughly enjoyed it. Well done!!
To Nir Koyfman, the Ringmaster, and all the members of the committee: Liora Shefer, Sarah and Yehoshua Maltzman (thanks also for arranging the children’s activities in the shul) Melissa Ben Horin, Yifat Koyfman, Sarah Cohen and Shani Kandel.
And of course to everyone who brought food and other accessories.
The idea of combining adults with children proved itself.
A great party, social, unifying and on a high standard – suitable for our active community.
I would also like to thank all the youth who responded to our call for help to bring chairs on Taanit Esther and this morning to return them.
