Purim at Congregation Beth Israel
Monday, March 9, 6pm: Purim Celebration
This year we’re planning a simpler celebration, focusing on the Purim story and on the sweetness of our togetherness. We’ll have a Purim spiel (play) that tells the Purim story, and a dessert buffet featuring hamentaschen and other tasty treats. Come together in community! Be merry! May our Purim be sweet! Please RSVP by email to or via our Facebook event and let us know if you want to bring something for the dessert buffet.
