Mishloach manot (sometimes referred to as Purim baskets) are gifts of food that friends (and prospective new friends!) exchange on Purim. We are instructed in the scroll of Esther (9:19) to send gifts to one another. Jewish families make or purchase mishloach manot and distribute them to friends. Often presented in baskets, mishloach manot include at least two different types of food, including hamantaschen, the traditional three-sided pastry eaten on Purim. Many families purchase or bake hamantaschen to include in these baskets and to enjoy at home. Mishloach manot may also include a wide variety of foods and treats. These gifts are frequently referred to by their Yiddish name, shalachmanos.
Mishloach Manot FAQs
Are mishloach manot/manos and shalach manot/manos the same thing?
Yes. It wouldn't be Jewish if it didn't have multiple names!
