Sending Mishloach Manot before Purim


Some authorities understand that the purpose of mishloach manot is to increase our goodwill toward each other on Purim itself. Therefore, mishloach manot should be sent, or at least received, on Purim itself.

(Magen Avraham 694:1; Be'er Heiteiv Orach Chaim 695:7; Pri Megadim Orach Chaim Eishel Avraham 694:1; Biur Halachah Orach Chaim 694 lishnei; Aruch haShulchan Orach Chaim 690:1, 694:2; Beit Shearim Orach Chaim 381; Divrei Yatziv Orach Chaim 298:2, Hashmatos 65:1; Yehudah Yaaleh Orach Chaim 207; Chelkas Yaakov Orach Chaim 233; Torah Lishmah 188; Yechaveh Daat 440)

Have a great day,
