Send a gift to your community this Purim!

"Observe them as days of feasting and merrymaking, and as an occasion for sending gifts to one another and presents to the poor." -Book of Esther 9:22
Celebrate Purim and feed the hungry by sending Purim cards
to friends and family through Tikkun Ha-Ir! 
Order your cards by March 8!

Purim Cards serve as both Mishloach Manot, gifts to one another, and as Matanot L'Evyonim, presents to the poor. Your purchase will support the Food Justice efforts of our local community which gather leftover fresh produce, prepare healthy foods and distribute it to food pantries and shelters.

The cards, designed by THI board member Cindy Cooper, will sent by mail ONLY this year. Purim is March 20, 2019.

Cost: $5 Per name.

Please send in names and payment by Friday, March 8th using the online sign-up form.   You can also mail your check to Tikkun Ha-Ir of Milwaukee, PO Box 090287, Milwaukee, WI 53209.
