Purim is a Jewish festival celebrating the avoidance of an ancient genocide. One of the customs of this holiday is Mishloach Manot, the sending of two or more edible treats to friends and family.

Congregation B’nai Torah, 5700 Main St., Trumbull will once again hold its annual Mishloach Manot project. For a donation of $10 per box, B’nai Torah will handle preparation and local delivery of baskets to addresses in Trumbull, Monroe, Bridgeport, Easton, Fairfield, Newtown, Stratford and Shelton.

Have family out of town? Delivery beyond the local area is available for addresses anywhere in the country for an additional fee of $7 per box to cover the postage.

Orders for the baskets must be received in the B’nai Torah office by Friday, Feb. 12.
