Purim Family Visits

Celebrate Purim Together with An Older Adult!

DOROT invites families (with children ages 5 and older) to spread festive holiday fun via Zoom or phone calls to older adults.

Virtual visits take place for 20 – 40 minutes and begin at 5:00 PM on the designated day. Virtual visits take place on Monday, February 22 or Wednesday, February 24 - select the date that works best for you. Each family will receive a helpful guide with visiting tips and conversation starters. 

Costumes welcome!

Optional Misloach Manot Activity: Fulfill the mitzvah of giving mishloach manot (a traditional Purim food package filled with holiday goodies) by delivering a package to the older adult before your call. Families will arrange a delivery time with the older adult prior to the call and deliver the package to their door while wearing face coverings and maintaining social distance. Families are responsible for providing the package. DOROT will share the older adult's contact information with you prior to the visit so you may arrange a time to drop off the package. 

Registration is now open through February 18. Spaces are limited. Registration will close once all matches have been made.
