On Sunday, February 10, volunteers from the Sisterhood of Congregation Beth Israel in Scotch Plains prepared gift bags with groggers, treats and traditional hamentashen cookies to be delivered to the entire congregation before the Jewish holiday of Purim.  This year’s gift bags featured reusable lunch totes with Congregation Beth Israel’s logo.

Congregation Beth Israel’s Sisterhood also donated Purim gift bags and additional pounds of hamentashen to residents of AristaCare at Cedar Oaks, a nursing home in South Plainfield.  Purim gift bags and hamentashen were also donated to Crossroads School, a public school in Westfield that provides education for children ages 3 – 12 with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
