Purim

The festival of Purim commemorates the salvation of the Jewish people in ancient Persia from Haman’s plot “to destroy, kill and annihilate all the Jews, young and old, infants and women, in a single day.” It is celebrated with Megillah readings, gifts of food, charity, feasting, and merriment.

Our 2018 “Jurassic” Purim Party was a roaring good time with meteor blasts of fun. Check this page again as Purim approaches next year to see all the fun we will have planned!  Hamantaschen and costumes are surely going to be included!
