Purim 2024

Purim Party and Megillah Reading

Saturday, March 23 at 6:00pm

Shalach Manot & Hamentaschen Baking

Continuing with our Har Shalom tradition, every congregant, preschool family, and religious school family will receive a gift box at their home, delivered by a community volunteer. 

As our community has grown and the cost of ingredients continues to increase, we are grateful for your donations to offset the cost of baking and other shalach manot items. For this year to be successful, please fill out the Purim form (at the bottom of this page) to donate or to volunteer your time as a hamentaschen baker, box assembler, or delivery driver. If you will not be in town when boxes are delivered, please email to let us know. Your Purim box will be available for pickup at Har Shalom when you return. 


Baking Days (Volunteers can stay for the entire time or drop in when convenient):

  • Sunday, March 3: Community Bake Day at Har Shalom | 12:30 - 5:00pm
  • Wednesday, March 13: Community Bake Day at Har Shalom | 9:30am - 1:00pm
  • Tuesday, March 19: Community Bake Day at Har Shalom | 3:00 - 7:00pm

OR: Host a baking party at your home any day between Feb. 17 and March 17. All baking supplies and instructions will be provided. Email with the date you'd like to host and how many people will be helping you.

Assembly & Delivery: 

  • Wednesday, March 20 at 5:30pm: Assemble shalach manot, pack hamentaschen and other treats.
  • Sunday, March 24: Pick up boxes and delivery list (with names and addresses) from Har Shalom between 9:00am and 12:00pm. Plan on 60-90 minutes of delivery time. Your list of homes will be fairly close together. This is a great family activity and a wonderful way to meet your Har Shalom neighbors!
