Purim

The holiday of Purim commemorates the mythical deliverance of the Jewish people from a genocidal plot in ancient Persia. For us, Purim is a celebration of the heroes in Jewish history (especially Jewish women!) and a tribute to ethical role models.

Our Sunday School students create their own Illustrated Megillah (“scroll" in Hebrew). Each class, from first grade through confirmation, decorates one page of the megillah, and the whole megillah is rolled out during the rabbi’s telling of the Purim story. 

Our school Purim service is followed by a festive Purim carnival with costumes, games and food!

All are welcome to attend our Purim celebration!

“Purim for Adults Only” Celebration

 

 

As part of a Friday evening Shabbat service, Rabbi Chalom leads a “Purim for Adults Only” service which exposes the subversive humor, drinking, sex and violence in the Scroll of Esther and its later commentaries and influence. No one under Chai (18) admitted! 

You might enjoy this “Drunk History, Purim Edition” program with our Rabbi Adam Chalom and Rabbi Denise Handlarski.
