Sisterhood Happy Purim

Mishloach Manot is the Purim Mitzvah of sending treats to our families, friends, and neighbors.  Sisterhood invites you to fulfill this Mitzvah in a wonderful way. We will prepare delightful Purim bags, filled with surprises, along with a beautiful Purim greeting card for each family in our shul. This is a lovely way to enhance the joy of the holiday! In addition, this year, we will be allocating a portion of your donation to send baskets to soldiers in Israel.

The cost of sending cards and bags to the entire congregation, including staff members, is $100.00. If you would like to be included in this Mitzvah, we request that you bring or mail your check for $100.00, payable to Sisterhood, to SBJC, Sisterhood, Attention: Shalach Manot, 2959 Grand Avenue, Baldwin, NY 11510. Please submit your payment before February 27th.

Each family will receive a bag. If you would like your name to be included only on the cards of selected families, please attach their names along with your payment.

Bring your baby item donations to SBJC

We are writing to ask once again for your patience and support. As you were previously advised we are in the process of replacing Murray as well as in the process of changing our billing and record keeping system. During this transition we have not been able to enter the payments received to our member's accounts. The November Statements have been sent out but do not reflect the payments that have been received during the past month. Nor have the payments for October that were accumulated, been posted. We have paper records of all payments and have made the deposits but we have not been able to enter them into the electronic system while we are making this transition. We greatly appreciate your patience and assure that all accounts will be updated properly. We assure those that still have payments due that all payments received will be properly posted once we have completed the transition and appreciate your continuing to make your payments and donations.

It is considered a great mitzvah and responsibility to honor the Sabbath by lighting candles 18 minutes before sunset on Friday evening.

This unique commandment, entrusted to the Jewish woman, is rich with meaning and purpose.
