Celebrate Purim by Doing a Mitzvah: Contribute to Beth Am's 2019 Purim Drive
Observing the Purim Mitzvah of Matanot la-Evyonim (Gifts to the Poor)
One of the mitzvot of Purim is giving matanot la’evyonim (gifts to the poor). This year, Beth Am has TWO Purim tzedakah recipients (collection bins are located for both in the Sanctuary Foyer and Main Office):
- We are collecting new or gently used bras (in good shape only) to give to Be A Dear and Donate a Brassiere, a nonprofit organization started in 2009 which has donated over 10,000 bras to local Bay Area homeless shelters. Bra donations should have all hooks working, no stains or pulled elastic. Diverse sizes needed. $1 discount off admission to Adult Purim for every bra you bring to donate!
- We are collecting school supplies to donate to Haven Family House, a Menlo Park location of LifeMoves. This project is coordinated through BAJY (Beth Am Junior Youth), who has organized the collection. Here is a suggested items listing. $1 discount off admission to Family Purim for every school supply you bring to donate!
