Purim is a time to tell the story of Esther and send food and gifts to friends. It is also a time to be generous— and give to those in need. With that mitzvah in mind, this Purim Shearith Israel is organizing a community-wide campaign “Share a Smile... 18 Acts in 18 days!” Each day we’re suggesting an idea for a small act of kindness— a simple way to make the world a little better, brighter and spread kindness to those around you. Keep an eye out for the daily emails. 

For every act of kindness you log, an anonymous donor will give $1 to further our Ahavat Chinam initiatives!
