What's new at Beth Shalom

BETH SHALOM PURIM FUNDRAISER
 
Mishloach Manot for Everyone
 
One of the mitzvot of Purim is sending gifts of food, called Mishloach Manot, to friends and family. At Beth Shalom, we involve the whole community and send all of our member families gift baskets. The sweets and treats bring joy and festivity to the holiday. Each bag is filled with fresh baked hamentashen, fruit and goodies.
This year, every family will receive a basket from every donor. Simply select the donor level you would like to participate in, complete the form and send in your payment. Payments may be made by check or credit card (Mastercard, Visa, & Discover). Please return THIS FORM and payment to Beth Shalom, 3750 E. Third St., Bloomington, IN 47401 or pay online HERE.
