Mishloach Manot FAQs

What are mishloach manot?

Mishloach manot (sometimes referred to as Purim baskets) are gifts of food that friends (and prospective new friends!) exchange on Purim. We are instructed in the scroll of Esther (9:19) to send gifts to one another. Jewish families make or purchase mishloach manot  and distribute them to friends. Often presented in baskets, mishloach manot include at least two different types of food, including hamantaschen, the traditional three-sided pastry eaten on Purim.   Many families purchase or bake hamantaschen to include in these baskets and to enjoy at homeMishloach manot may also include a wide variety of foods and treats. These gifts are frequently referred to by their Yiddish name, shalachmanos.

Are mishloach manot/manos and shalach manot/manos the same thing?

Yes.  It wouldn't be Jewish if it didn't have multiple names!

What happens when I order mishloach manot through Sisterhood?

Sisterhood makes one bag of Purim treats for every Barnert household.  These bags are available for families to pick up from Barnert during the week of Purim.

Sisterhood then sends a personalized letter to each household listing the names of those who sent them Purim greetings.  When you order mishloach manot through us, you are adding your name to someone's personalized Purim greeting.

If I want to order additional bags to give to family/friends outside of Barnert, is that possible?

Of course!  Some families purchase additional bags to personally deliver to family and friends.  When placing your order in the online system, you can tell us how many additional physical Purim bags you want.  We'll make them and have them available for you to pick up during the week of Purim.
