Mishloach Manot /
Purim Package Project

Chisuk Emuna is pleased to launch this year's Mishloach Manot/Purim Package project!  

Mishloach Manot - sending food gifts to friends and family - is one of the four Mitzvot performed on Purim.  It is a heartfelt way to emphasize the Jewish unity that lies at the core of the Purim holiday...and to create meaningful connections within our own congregation at the same time.  

 

Through this project, members can participate in the sending of a beautiful gift bag to other members of the congregation that will be delivered to them just prior to the Purim holiday, which this year is on March 6th and 7th.  

 

For more details, contact the office at info@chisukemuna.org or 717-232-4851.

Living the Art of Loving Weekend

Living the art of Loving 04 (1).png

Chisuk Emuna member, Lara Match, wrote and illustrated a book, Living the Art of Loving, which was released in Nov '22. The book is about intentional relationships and we have organized a few events over a weekend to reflect on and engage with this topic.

During Shabbat morning services, before Musaf, Lara will share reflections on how the book came to be.

10:15-11:00 am kids program led by Lara and Ezra Match exploring themes from the book, ages 4-teens welcome (and parents of younger kids too!) RSVP here.

Kiddush with original illustrations from the book on display.

Sunday, Feb 19

1:00-3:00pm: book reading and discussion.

Book reading, discussion circles, author Q&A, and coloring station available for younger kids. Bring your open hearts! Light refreshments, books for purchase, and book signing will be available. Please RSVP here or call the office at 717-232-4851.

"I read Living the Art of Loving in just one short sitting. Then I read it again. And then I reread certain parts of it, and then other parts...and again and again and again. I invite you to come to Lara's book reading and discover for yourselves how this very, very large book contained in a very small cover never stops giving. I guarantee it will open your eyes and your heart!"
