For years I have given as mishloach manos to rabbanim a bottle of wine and some other prepared package of candy and the like. I cannot imagine that the rav wants or needs all this, so I was wondering if anyone has suggestions of what would be a more meaningful shalach manos for a rav.February 27, 2015 2:24 pm at 2:24 pm #1062146☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant

Most of the mishaloch manos people get they dont need so why should a Rav be different?February 27, 2015 2:29 pm at 2:29 pm #1062149flatbusherParticipant

How about a bottle of 37 year old Tomintoul reserve and some herring? I think it has an OU.February 27, 2015 8:25 pm at 8:25 pm #1062154oomisParticipant
A small bottle of wine or sparkling grape juice, a bag of nuts, and a fruit, which I put into a cardboard Chumash-shaped bencher box one year. If you know they will eat your baked goods, then throw in some home-made hamantashen.February 27, 2015 9:19 pm at 9:19 pm #1062155nishtdayngesheftParticipant
I have a question.
Has anybody ever drank sparkling grape juice willingly?
I think the only reason it even sells is because it has a niceish bottle. But I don’t know if it is possible to even drink. I wonder if you can be yotze mishloach manot with sparkling grape juice. I know that there Are shitos that say you cannot be yotze with water.March 1, 2015 4:02 am at 4:02 am #1062156from Long IslandParticipant
Honestly, I do not think Rabbeim are paid enough for what they do. I think a bottle of wine, a fruit and cash/check would be most appreciatedMarch 1, 2015 4:17 am at 4:17 am #1062157147Participant
Honestly, I do not think Rabbeim are paid enough for what they do According to your assertion from Long island, which is probably very correct assertion, then why aren’t we giving Matonos loEvyonim to the Rabbi instead of Shelach Monos? Certainly they don’t need 200 bottles of wine & grape juice, but may well need the money.March 1, 2015 5:39 am at 5:39 am #1062158barlevParticipant
Are you talking about the community rav or rebbe in cheder?March 1, 2015 7:30 pm at 7:30 pm #1062159Miriam377Participant
For the Rav of the shul, We buy a nice serving platter (from Amazing Savings) and load it with beautiful fruits, vegetables, cheeses and crackers.March 2, 2015 3:12 am at 3:12 am #1062160from Long IslandParticipant
Exactly correct, that is what we do. We give a fairly large check with a bottle of wine to the Rabbeim that we wish and a smaller check to Tomchei Shabbos.
Personally, I like giving to those I personally and know they could use a bit of help.
