Purim Schpiel - 10:30AM to 11:30AM

For two shows only, our crack(ed?) staff and volunteers perform and original and hilarious Purim Schpiel, with clergy and teachers making fools of themselves, telling the story of how Queen Esther and Mordechai save the day. This is great fun for the whole family.

Mishloach Manot (Purim Gift)

Did you receive a Purim basket filled with goodies last year? NOW is the time to order your Purim Gift basket; a great way to honor your friends, teachers, clergy and fellow congregants!
One of the nicest traditions on Purim is that of giving a gift of food to friends. This is called “Mishloach Manot” (Mish-LO-ach Ma-NOTE) — the sending of gifts. According to Jewish law, one should give a gift of two different types of food, one of which is prepared (cooked or baked) to at least one person. This law is described in the Book of Esther (9:22) as part of the proper celebration of Purim.
The giving of gifts to one another helps to create a feeling of closeness and hope in the community at a time of the year when we are still burdened with the bleakness of winter. There is a rabbinic teaching that we should not only give gifts to friends, but to someone who is new in the community, to those who are needy, and to those whose spirits would be bolstered by knowing that someone cares.
