Mishloach Manot Purim Fundraiser

The Sisterhood of Congregation Habonim is pleased to launch its annual Mishloach Manot Purim Fundraiser. When you participate, you fulfill the Purim mitzvah of matanot l'evyonim -- giving gifts to the poor and  supporting Congregation Habonim.

This year Purim starts on February 25. Due to Covid-19, Sisterhood will not be making mishloach manot packages this  year.

Donations toward Mishloach Manot can be made at various amounts.
Suggested levels are as follows:
Esther - $540, Queen Vashti - $360, Mordechai - $180, Shushan - $72, Megillah - $36

All donations will be acknowledged in the weekly email after Purim.
Please click here to donate .

Our Sisterhood is affiliated with Women's League for Conservative Judaism (WLCJ), which is the umbrella organization for Conservative synagogue women's groups worldwide. Through our association with WLCJ, Habonim Sisterhood members have access to educational, cultural and leadership development programs here at Habonim at 103 West End Avenue, and also beyond the walls of Habonim. 

There is always something new and interesting for us to participate in along with our "sisters" from all over the Metropolitan Area and beyond. For further information, contact Sisterhood Board at

Unless otherwise noted, all events are open to all. While the building is closed, events take place on Zoom.
