Now on Sale! OHOH Purim Cards

Mishloach Manot Fundraiser for Open Hearts Open Homes

Mishloach Manot (literally: “sending of portions”) is a generations-old Purim tradition of sending sweet treats and/or warm wishes to friends and family and those whose spirits would be lifted by such a gesture.

Support Open Hearts Open Homes by purchasing these beautiful Purim cards so you can wish your friends and family “Chag Purim Sameach/Happy Purim” and perform this mitzvah.

Card packs will be mailed to you. Deadline for orders is Mar 10, 2022.

About Open Hearts Open Homes

The JCC of Northern New Jersey developed this unique program in 2002 to support Israeli children who have suffered trauma as a result of the ongoing terror in Israel.  Funded entirely through the generosity of private donors, Open Hearts Open Homes offers a respite from the daily stress of life on the Gaza Strip and Sderot to these brave Israeli teens who have been impacted by violence their entire lives.

Teens who are selected travel completely expense-free to the United States and stay with volunteer host families for three weeks. They enjoy daily activities including visits to local attractions, a taste of summer camp, many social gatherings, and a constant shower of love. By bringing comfort and support to these teens who have already witnessed more than their fair share of fear and loss throughout their young lives, we hope to achieve our goal of providing them much needed support, hope, and healing for a brighter future.
