Purim Service & Shpiel
Don a costume and grab a grogger for a visit to the streets of Shushan on Friday, March 22 at 7:15 p.m. during our Purim service
at the Temple. We’ll make merry when Rabbi Lenny reads from Migillat Esther, retelling the story of how Queen Esther and her cousin Mordechai save the Jews of Persia. Our middle school students will add to the fun by performing a shpiel.
Enter the costume contest for children and adults, play new and favorite games, bid on a diamond necklace during the silent auction, sample an updated menu by the ROMEOs when our annual Purim Carnival
returns with a new look on Sunday, March 24 from noon to 2 p.m. at the Temple.
The fun includes:
- Bagel darts, bounce house, face painting, basketball and more
- Bingo for the grown-ups ($1 per card - begins at 1 p.m.) with Mike Rush calling out the numbers to win fun prizes.
- Food from the ROMEOs (Retired Old Men Eating Out) featuring cheese pizza, Casa salad, fruit, kugel, lox and bagels, and, of course, hamentashen
- Silent auction to benefit the youth group. Items include a diamond necklace (valued at $1,200) and four $25 gift certificates for Paintball Plex, La Dolce Vita in Roanoke, Teeth Whitening Package, Fleet Feet, and more.
