Chanukah Mystery Mensch Sign Up

Tuesday, October 26, 2021 20 Cheshvan 5782

All Day for 10 Days

Bring some light to a congregant’s Chanukah celebration this year with Olam Tikvah’s Mystery Mensch card and gift exchange! Sign up to secretly send a Chanukah greeting to a fellow Olam Tikvah member, and you’ll be surprised with something special during the holiday from a Mystery Mensch, as well. (If you just want to receive a secret greeting, that’s okay, too).

The exchange is coordinated by the Olam Tikvah Membership Committee, which is dedicated to spreading holiday joy and building community.

Here’s how it works:

  • Households can sign up through November 5 to participate in this fun holiday activity, either as a Mystery Mensch, a recipient, or both.
  • Mystery Mensches will receive their recipient’s name(s) by November 16.
  • To participate, please deliver a Chanukah gift to your assigned recipient(s) during Chanukah (November 28-December 6). Gifts can include homemade cards, small gifts, pre-packaged hechshered food (cookies, tea, candy), or a creative idea of your own. If you are feeling extra enthusiastic, you are welcome to send or drop off multiple gifts (no more than $20 total, please) to your recipient throughout the week, as well. Be creative and have fun!
  • Check your mail and doorstep each day of the holiday to see if your Mystery Mensch has left a secret surprise for you.
  • Reveal date and details will be announced during Chanukah.

Questions? Please reach out to Erica Silverstein.

Thank you to the Membership Committee: Melinda Roth (co-chair), Erica Silverstein, and Debbie Weber (co-chair)
