Adult Purim Celebration

March 11, 2017 - 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Purim – The Musical?

This Purim, help us boo Haman – and cheer on your fellow congregants. B’nai Israel will hold its usual slate of Purim fun on Saturday, March 11, and Sunday, March 12, including the Megillah reading, the Sunday morning Purim service and the Purim carnival. This year, thanks to the holiday’s occurrence on a Saturday night, we are adding B’nai Israel LIVE! to the festivities. Come join us as we make Purim great again! Some of our musically talented congregants will perform short sets, coffeehouse style. We will provide dessert and coffee; for you, it is BYOB. Purim marks the heroism of Queen Esther, who thwarted the plans of the evil Haman to destroy the Jewish community of Persia. Here is our full schedule of Purim Events:

Saturday, March 11

  • 7:30-8:00 p.m. – Megillah reading and sing-a-long with our clergy and musicians
  • 8-10 p.m. – B’nai Israel LIVE!

Sunday, March 12

  • 11 a.m.-Noon – Preschool and Religious School Purim assembly in the sanctuary. Enjoy a Dr. Seuss style Purim spiel with our clergy and teachers, and here come hear our teens read the Megillah. The Junior Choir and preschool students also will perform some of your favorite Purim melodies and lead us in a short service.
  • Noon-2 p.m. – Purim Carnival in the Social Hall! Support the Confirmation Class Bake Sale fundraiser at the same time!
