On Purim, we ask that any costumes you wear do not hide your face. We need to be able to identify every person in our building.
Last year it was Schmalz. The year before it was Le Maariv.
In 5777 it’s
West Side Maariv
7:30pm – Havdallah in the Social Hall
7:45pm – Parade of Costumes
8:00pm – West Side Maariv (full prayers done to tunes from West Side Story)
9:15pm – Spielen and Megillah reading
10:15pm – Dancing: Joe Blumenzweig will VJ (yes, that means there will be music videos and lights and great music — in the Sanctuary after the Megillah reading). Ice Cream (and Sorbet) Sundae Bar and Hamentashen to refresh yourself for the dancing!
Volunteers needed for greeting and ushering, kitchen prep, and more. Contact Rabbi Sarah Rubin if you can help!
For Purim Day, Sunday, March 12th, there will be Minyan and Megillah reading, followed by a Seudah and Matanot L’Evyonim – making gifts to the poor – with the help of the Social Action Committee and Isaac Goldberg who will be celebrating becoming Bar Mitzvah.
