Erev Purim

February 25 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


6:30pm Maariv OR Make Your Own Grogger (Noisemaker) for 3-8 Year Olds
6:45pm Music + Costume Spotlighting
7:00pm Megillah Reading + Integrated Schtick Experience

Join us on Zoom for an evening of music, costumes (wear one so we can show them off!), and megillah reading with fun surprises in between chapters. We are planning this experience for Zoom. There is one Zoom link for the whole evening, and it can be found in Cybershul or on the CBS Facebook page.

Show up at 6:30 and you’ll be directed to a Zoom breakout room either for Maariv or for families with 3-8 year olds to make fun and festive craft that you can use to blot out Haman’s name.  Here are the materials you will need (feel free to make substitutions based on what you have available): paper plates, markers (or crayons, colored pencils, sharpies, stickers etc. for decorating), dried beans (or beads to make noise), a stapler (or hot glue) to seal it- likely adult help will be needed for this part. We hope you will stick around afterwards for Purim songs, an opportunity to show off your costume, and to hear the Megillah!

There is space for a limited number of people to come to Beth Shalom for the megillah reading. If you wish to attend in person, please register below by 12pm on Thursday, February 25 and note that you will be able to view but not interact with certain portions of evening that happen over Zoom.
