Fascinating Insights—The Sefer (in English)
A Moving Mishloach Manos
One idea of giving Mishloach
Manos is to increase unity. What are some ways we can do this?
1) Instead of just giving
the Mishloach Manos that we “must” give such as to our friends and neighbors,
we should also think of people that we may have had a conflict or some friction
with and give them. Perhaps giving to these people is even more important. Purim
is a great day to do this because people’s hearts are open and more receptive
on this festive day. Someone once put it this way: Make a list of everyone you
want to give Mishloach Manos to. Now rip up the list and give Mishloach Manos
to those who didn’t make it to the list.
2) Another idea is to
think of someone who could use encouragement and uplifting. Send this person a
Mishloach Manos. It is not about what you give rather about the fact that the
person feels like they matter, that someone cares about them, that they were
3) Make something special
that you know the person enjoys. We can extend this even further. For example,
don’t send a Mishloach Manos full of candies and cakes to an older couple that is
health-conscious. Similarly, if you know someone is allergic to certain foods,
make a special effort to send them that which they aren’t allergic to. Then
your Mishloach Manos has so much more meaning to them which truly increases
4) Another great idea is to write a letter or at
least some nice words in the Mishloach Manos you send. For example, if you send
to a teacher of your child, write how much you appreciate the teacher. Or if you
give to a neighbor, you can write we are so lucky and grateful to have you as
neighbors. This puts some “soul” into the “body” of your Mishloach Manos. This
therefore brings feelings of unity.
