Let's come together for Purim with a little help from our friends! Hold Esther's hand as she gently weeps for the Jewish People and deals with the nowhere man (not to be named here) who will twist and shout. 

Dress in your best ‘60s- and ‘70s-themed outfit (mop top wigs optional!) and join us on Monday, March 9 at 6 p.m. at the Temple. Led by Rabbi Paula Jayne Winnig, we’ll tell the story of Purim with tefillot set to Beatles music. Grab a grogger and, well, shake it up, baby, now! Cheer for Mordechai as he offers help to find the Sun as we help Esther to feel fine and all sing “obla di, obla da.”

Afterward, a pasta dinner will be served (suggested contribution: $5 per person). RSVP for dinner to the Temple office at (260) 744-4245 by Friday, March 6. A traditional reading of the Megillah will begin at 7:30 p.m. led by Pamela Friedman with Rabbi Paula Jayne Winnig. We welcome all to participate in services and need people willing to read part of the Megillah. Play a role in the service and help serve the meal!

We’ll have plenty of groggers, but please also bring boxes of macaroni and cheese to shake and then donate to the food bank at Wellspring Interfaith Social Services.
