Participate in Temple Sinai’s Purim Project by bringing joy into your home, your life and your community.  

Pay it forward through the mitzvah of giving Mishloach Manot.

It is common practice to send treats to one another in celebration of the holiday of Purim.  As this practice has its roots in the story of Esther, the custom has been transformed and grown over the years.

This year, consider creating your own Mishloach Manot baskets for friends, loved ones or front line workers who may be in need of a little added joy this year.  Click here for some ideas from the URJ about what to include in your Mishloach Manot deliveries!

Give Tzedakah to Those in Need

Another mitzvah of the Purim holiday is giving Tzedakah.  During this time, here are some ways to support those in need:

  • Consider creating Mishloach Manot packages for local food banks or shelters - you can find information about Sandy Spring’s Solidarity Food Pantry on our Temple Sinai Economic Justice page. 
  • Donate clothing to a local shelter as you begin spring cleaning
  • Support Temple Sinai partner organizations
    • Family Promise - provides emergency shelter for those in need of housing. Your donations (whether monetary or items) are essential at this time.
    • Second Helpings - The need for food in this time of Covid is greater than ever. Support fellow vulnerable Atlanta families and donate food!
    • Community Assistance Center - with a variety of ways to assist your neighbors in need, visit the CAC website to best determine how you can provide meaningful support.

Celebrate Purim with Sinai

Join us for this year’s Sinai Purim CARnival, emphasis on the car! As the Sinai parking lot becomes a live telling of the Purim story, drive through to “boo” Haman from the window, enjoy carnival foods and win prizes from games along the way. Take a moment to step out of your car with your family for a hero themed photo shoot and most importantly, the dunk tank is back! Don’t miss the chance to dunk your favorite clergy and staff, and enjoy our time together to celebrate Purim as a community. With the exception of the open-air photo booth, all activities will take place from your car. Masks and social distancing enforcedCostumes encouraged. Bring a box of pasta that will act as your grogger for us to shake together!  Visit the calendar page for more details and to RSVP.

 

Join together virtually for the Megillah with festive Purim cocktails! Whether a Long Island Vash-Tea or a Haman “Hang” Over, we’ll have recipes available for both alcoholic and non-alcoholic Purim-themed cocktails. Check out our Purim-Themed Cocktail list above for recipes! JOIN HERE
