Don't believe so though could be wrong. One can I think send a meshulaiach to give it!

Why not give to a non frum jew then. Smile Maybe ask your rav I might be wrong conc mailing it. I mean we do it for relatives but mitzvah wise can't see it being counted Confused

the mitzva is to send it via a shaliah.
I do not know if he has to be Jewish
So it looks like mailig it is better than self-delivering.
Probably it has to be delivered on Purim

Ask your Rav.

I dont think it counts as a mitzvah, maybe if its delivered on purim- ask a Rav!
of course you can always give it to each other Very Happy
but why not find a non-frum Jew to give it to?

they are messianic, so I'd rather not give it to them.

So give it to them!!
(don't talk to them, just give to increase shalom)

Or will interpret it as an invitation to nudge u?

I don't know if it is mutar to send via non-jewish shaliach. But if it is, why isn't the mailman considered a shaliach?

amother yes they are J4J.
that's what I'm trying to find out, if the non-Jewish mailman would pass for shliach.

[quote="dina"]Jews for J?? Are they really Jewish? I thought they weren't...[/quote]

the founder of j4j is not. the typical inductee of this cult is a yiddishe kind who had little if any jewish education, grew up in an assimilated home , and is looking for his roots. the organization uses just enough jewish buzzwords and concepts to sound plausibly jewish to someone who knows nothing or just a little. the organization, yemach shmam, is a christian missionary group with the specific objective of converting jews to christianity. knowing that most jews, even disaffected ones, will not be attracted to a group that states baldly "we want you to convert", this group (and all other "messianic jewish' orgs) tells them "come back to your roots. this is the true judaism"

btw, this is a little late (or early!), but...
the mitvah is to give on Purim....so I'm not sure if you're yotzei...however, if they receive it on purim, maybe you are?!? I'd ask a rov that one. Did you find out?
