Esther to the Rescue! A Purim comedy show for families
Professional comedy troupe The Bible Players presents a fun, family-oriented show!
Magical Megillah Madness!
A zany Zoom megillah experience and community Purim Shpiel. Come in costume, mask, or silly hat. Join in the fun! The reading will include magic tricks and sleight-of-hand by magician Ariel Shrum with Q&A after the Shpiel. Bring a grogger to shake (on mute! hey, it’s Purim, so everything is upside down!) or make signs that say Boo! and Yeah! to hold up during the reading.
New! Additional Full reading of the Megillah in Hebrew at 8:00 pm
Rabba Kaya Stern-Kaufman will open the program with a blessing and then share Rabbi Oren Steinitz’s special Purim project: ten rabbis and cantors each chant a chapter of the Megillah in Hebrew, in the traditional tropes. Video includes the scroll and yad so you can follow along from home!
Join us in the Temple Israel parking lot for a Car Costume Parade, Shalach Manot Exchange, and some Purim Games and Surprises!
Share the Joy… Come in costume, masks or silly get-ups. Decorate your car and join the Purim Parade. Bring a shalach manot bag to share. Donate some non-perishable foods for the Food Bank, or give tzedakah to help feed those living with food insecurity through the Jewish organization Mazon.
Two special mitzvot for Purim are giving gifts of delicious treats to one another and gifts to the needy. Suggestions to include in your shalach manot bag: home-baked or bought hamantaschen, citrus fruit, individually wrapped candies such as Hershey’s Kisses, Sunkist Fruit Gels, bagged dried fruit. (Please be mindful of those with allergies and include a list of ingredients for home-baked treats.)
