The month of Adar — the month that includes Purim — is a time to share good fortune and to bring joy to others. It is customary to give mishloach manot, gifts of food and drinks, to family, friends, and others on Purim day.
This year, Jewish Family & Children’s Services of Northern New Jersey is selling Purim cards to be sent in lieu of mishloach manot. Card proceeds will support the JFCS Corner Market food pantry, which has more than 560 families in its catchment area, serving more than 2,000 people who are suffering from food insecurity.
Cards are sold in packs of 5 for $25, 10 for $40, and 20 for $70. To order or learn more about JFCS’s other services, go to jfcsnnj.org.
