Shalach Manos Order

Dear Community Member,

Purim is not far off (February 28th – March 1st). This year we are again offering the opportunity for our members to conveniently participate in the great Mitzvah of Shalach Manos (food-gift packages) to one another. This year’s version will be consistent with our Purim Banquet Theme, “Purim in the Circus!” They will be, as always, extremely creative and loaded with goodies!

The Shalach Manos gifts are lovingly dedicated by the Moyal Family in loving memory of their grandparents and to help celebrate their beautiful legacy of passionately embracing the ways of the Torah.

The commandment to send food gifts to the community fosters mutual love. Everyone can economically be a part of this beautiful Mitzvah by simply filling out and returning the order form with your check or Visa/MasterCard number, or you can order online on our secure website; and leave a note on the form. 

Please watch your mail for our bright yellow envelope. Enclosed you will find the current list of Chabad at La Costa members and friends. Every member will receive a Shalach Manos food-gift package with an insert detailing who participated in sending the gift.  Simply check off the names that you would like to have your name included on. It costs only $54 per name that you want included, or as an incentive to be as inclusive as possible, it costs only $180 to include everyone on the list. That means your name will be included on every delivered Shalach Manos. You can fulfill the Mitzvah of Shalach Manos and the Mitzvah of Tzedakah at the same time! Also, everyone who chooses the $180 option gets two adult tickets to our fabulous Purim Banquet on Thursday, March 1st from 5pm – 8pm at no additional cost. The regular price is $25 per adult and $10 per child. Our Purim banquet will have an amazing Circus menu and the ambiance we have all come to expect and enjoy. Our Purim Banquet is dedicated to the memory of Howard and Raymonde Plant, two people whose support and generosity was so important for our community. 

Please be sure to return your form with payment no later than February 15th. Your payment must be sent with your order form to be processed. Don’t be left out! Please remember: If you do not participate your name may not be included on the cards sent to those on the list, and you may receive a package from someone whom you neglected to send.

All proceeds benefit our community – so it is a total win-win situation.
