emen Balk placed bags
filled with grapefruit,
nuts and cookies into
the back seat of his
blue station wagon Sunday
and drove off to deliver sha-
lach manot to new Ameri-
cans.
Mr. Balk, who moved to
Detroit from Moldavia last
year, wanted to help people
from his homeland enjoy
their first Purim in America.
He and more than 100 vol-
unteers participated in the
Great Purim Parcel Project,
an annual event sponsored
by Jewish Experiences For
Families and The Jewish
News L'Chayim family sec-
tion.
Volunteers from congrega-
tions, youth groups, the Na-
tional Council of Jewish
Women and others helped
distribute more than 2,000
shalach manot, small pack-
ages of fruit and sweets that
friends traditionally give to
each other and the poor on
Purim.
Many parcels were pre-
pared at synagogues and
some at private homes. They
were brought to the Jewish
Community Centers and the
Agency for Jewish Education,
where volunteers distributed
them.
Jewish organizations re-
ceived many of the gifts. They
included the Jewish Home for
Aged and Group Apartments
for the Elderly, Sinai Hospi-
tal, Jewish Meals on Wheels

and the Yad Ezra kosher food
pantry. New Americans and
new Detroiters also received
the parcels.
Alice Lepsetz, a member of
Temple Emanu-El, was
preparing Purim parcels with
her 9-year-old daughter, Deb-
orah, at the United Hebrew
Schools building on 12 Mile
Road.
Deborah's prime concern
was the homeless.
"They have no clothes, no
food," she said.
-Others who came to the
United Hebrew Schools
building included daddy-
daughter duo Bruce Fealk,
and daughter Laura, 10.
"I just wanted to help out,"
said Laura – and the Reese's
Peanut Butter Cups didn't'
look half bad.
The Birmingham Temple
members bagged peanuts,
kosher potato chips, and, of
course, hamantashen.
J.E.F.F and The Jewish
News have sponsored the
Great Purim Parcel Project
for seven years.
In addition to food, the
parcels included stickers and
a pamphlet explaining the
history and rituals of the hol-
iday. Pamphlets for new
Americans were translated
into Russian.
Carting boxes full of,
parcels, Stevie Mendelso
said he volunteered for t
event because "the Sund
cartoons have really gone
... Haman." ❑
