Click here to view our Shalah Manot page thanking all our generous vendors who supported SHJC for Purim 2020!  Purim Baskets were available for pickup March 9 – 13.  In retrospect, perfect timing, because the baskets were chock full of goodies to help you get through the start of the Stay at Home order due to COVID-19.  Hope you enjoyed your basket.  Sisterhood wants to thank those who participated in their Shalah Manot Purim Baskets project.  It was a huge success.  Not only did we raise much needed funds, we also gave you the opportunity to satisfy the mitzvah of Shalah Manot.  More of you participated in this project than ever before.  We hope you enjoyed the contents.  Make sure you use the bags when you go shopping – another mitzvah.  Thank you also to all the women who helped make reciprocal phone calls, who helped pack the bags, and who helped hand out the bags.  We couldn’t do it without all of you.
