Chani from Chani's Project intends to distribute Mishloach Manot for 150 families of soldiers for Purim, some of whom are still serving in Gaza, some have been completely discharged, and some have already received enlistment orders for the Purim period.

Each package will cost 50 euros.

This is our opportunity to express gratitude, appreciation, and love to the families who enlisted four months to fight against terror and for the sake of the people and the country. For every package donated, we will write the name of the sender, for example: "With love and appreciation from the Mayer family in Basel.

Certainly, it is possible and desirable to give more than one package; we want to reach 150 packages.

In the donation notes, please write: "Purim - Chani's Project."

Update from Chani's Project.

Many of the readers have stepped up and sent donations. Today or tomorrow, I will transfer an amount equivalent to 10,000 shekels to her, which will actually cover the packages for this week and already allow her to prepare for the next week. It excites me a lot.

Chani's team has expanded, "Tali" from the neighborhood committee, whose son is a soldier, saw herself on the list and decided to join the team. She will go through all the neighboring buildings to check where there are more women whose husbands have already been in the army for a month.

"Chaya," Chani's daughter, brought a team of friends who bake and prepare alfajores. Another neighbor's daughter is making the personal letters.

In the photos: the personal letter that is prepared for each one. The Alphahorse that Chaya and her friends made. The list is being updated.

Benny, meanwhile, managed to take a few hours to organize a bar mitzvah for a boy he taught for the bar mitzvah.

What an amazing community we have.

Benny, my brother-in-law, has been enlisted in the army since October 7th. He is part of the military rabbinate, and since October 7th, he has been involved in the sacred work of caring for soldiers who have fallen.

In the photo: Benny returns home in the first week. One minute before Shabbat

In his civilian life, he manages a Chabad house in the Marom Neve neighborhood in Ramat Gan. However, since October 7th, he leaves home early in the morning and returns late, and his once-perpetual smile has been somewhat forced since then. In the first week after Simchat Torah, he and his friends received refrigerated trucks from the south, labeled 'Tnuva' or 'Tara' (Israeli dairy companies). However, instead of finding yogurts and cheeses, there were dozens of bodies of holy soldiers in bags, every day. He thinks it's something a human cannot bear, but it turns out that when there's no choice, there's no choice.

But I'm not here to tell you about Benny; I'm here to tell you about Chani, his wife, and Dvoora's sister. Chani has been alone at home with four children for a month and a week, amidst sirens and worries for her husband, who becomes thinner and paler every day while being with the holy ones. When the third Shabbat arrived, she felt the need for support. She needed someone to see her, to remember that she is alone with the children and the worries. So, she went and bought flowers for Shabbat, baked alfajor cookies for herself, bought tasty challah, and drew a heart on the packaging, writing 'Chani, Kol Hakavod' to herself, giving herself a happy Shabbat.

For the next Shabbat, Chani thought that there are probably other women like her. So, she prepared six sets and went with her son Mendi to bring five sets to her neighbors who also have children at home while their husbands are in the army. The sixth set she gave to herself. 

The women were so excited and happy that someone thought of them and remembered that they are alone with the children and the worries. They immediately told Chani that there are more women in the neighborhood in a similar situation. Thus, for the next Shabbat, they already distributed twenty sets, and Chani made calls, raised some flowers, some Challa, some money, and did not forget to prepare one set for herself.

Right pic: Chani and Tali the neighbor, happy and loving before Shabbat. By the way, does Chani look like Dvora?

For the upcoming Shabbat, Chani and the team are preparing to distribute 50 sets to fifty families who have a family member in the army, all in one neighborhood in Ramat Gan. Chani knows that there are probably several hundred families like hers in her neighborhood, where thousands of residents live. She understands that next week there will probably be 100 on the list, but for now, there are 50.

I live in Switzerland and asked Chani if we could help with the project, And here I offer you too if you only want to join as well. In each set that Chani gives, there is a flower arrangement, challah, cake, two Shabbat candles, all wrapped in a beautiful paper bag, a sticker with a heart, and a personal note. Each set costs Chani about 100 shekels, which is equivalent to app. 25 francs.

Dvora and I donated four sets and asked that one of them be Chani's set.

If you also want to help Chani, you can do so in one of the options here, and we will pass it on to them.
