Purim: A World Turned Upside Down
Temple Beth-El’s Rabbi Tara Feldman & Sharon Epstein invite you to join this free event, appropriate for all levels of yoga ability.
Wednesday, March 16, 7 p.m. Erev Purim Megillah Reading: The Silly and the Serious
Join Temple Beth-El in person or on Zoom as they journey through a lighthearted reading of the Megillah by congregants and clergy in English and in Hebrew. Attend (or Zoom) in costume! Bring a box of pasta to use as a grogger.
All pasta will then be donated to the St. Aloysius Interfaith Food Pantry. The evening will begin and conclude on a serious note as attendees consider the modern-day reality of antisemitism: Where do we perceive Haman’s hatred today? And where do we encounter Esther’s courageous response?
Appropriate for 6th grade and up.
Friday, March 18, 7 p.m. Erev Shabbat Service and Purim Shpiel: Get off your Hamantush!
Do you, or someone you love, suffer from Hamantashitis? Have you been sitting on your couch for the last 18 months?
Are you ready to get off your Hamantush? Do you want to be TBE famous? Then get ready for this year’s Virtual Purim Shpiel, which will be shared during Temple Beth-El’s Erev Shabbat Service. To enjoy the hilarity, just attend services in-person or virtually. Bring a box of pasta to use as a grogger. All pasta will then be donated to the St. Aloysius Interfaith Food Pantry.
Costume contest! Everyone can dress up to celebrate and the best-costumed winner will receive two tickets to Temple Beth-El’s next rooftop concert.
