Mystery Mensch Chanukah Exchange Sign Up Deadline

Sunday, November 22, 2020 6 Kislev 5781

All Day

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 even when we can’t be together in the synagogue building this Chanukah.

Here’s how it works:

  • Households can sign up through November 19 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 December 1.
  • To participate, please deliver a Chanukah gift to your assigned recipient(s) during Chanukah (December 10-19). 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, 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.
  • On December 19, all will be revealed! Reveal details will be announced during Chanukah.

Questions? Please reach out to Erica Silverstein.

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


Registration is closed.
