Designed envelope with mishloach manot to the Jews of America. The package includes two mil coins from 1927 with values of 1 and 2 mil and a designed brochure about the activities of the JNF in the Land of Israel and the Jewish world in general and including a request to the Jews of America to return mishloach manot to the JNF in the Land of Israel. The brochure is from 19/3/1935.

The attached brochure is mainly in English. At the end, there is an entire page with a Yiddish translation. It opens with words about the Purim holiday in general, and especially the importance of mishloach manot on Purim. The JNF turns to Jews in America with a request that this year they donate to the JNF in the Land of Israel, and with this fulfill the mitzvah of mishloach manot in its most praiseworthy way LET YOUR PURIM GIFT HELP REDEEM ERETZ ISRAEL... MAKE YOUR PURIM CHECK PAYABLE TO THE JEWISH NATIONAL FUND. The text points out that Jews are arriving in the Land of Israel from all over the world, including Jews emigrating from Germany, whose greatest need at this time is a land of their own [a few years before the Holocaust!]. The rest of the brochure is impressively designed showing a pioneer in the Land of Israel receiving mishloach manot in the form of a plate with an American check on it, the top part has a picture of Queen Esther and King Achashverosh with farms in the Land of Israel in the background.
