Join us on Wednesday, February 28th, at 7:00 p.m. for the READING OF THE MEGILLAH, also known as the Book of Esther.
In order to fulfill this first and foremost Purim mitzvah, one must hear every word of the reading, except of course, when we mention the name of the evil Haman and make as much noise as possible to blot out his name! If you like, dress up in a costume. Either way, come, have fun, enjoy the community and nosh some Hamantaschen.
The second mitzvah on Purim is MISHLOACH MANOT, or the sending of food gifts. When you come to the MEGILLAH READING, please bring along a small bag or other container, filled with two or more different types of ready-to-eat foods. We will exchange these little gift bags so that at the end of the evening, every person who attends is able to take one of them home. Keep it simple, this is about fun and not about spending a lot of money. It is the thought that counts! Need some ideas? Check out this link: https://kosheronabudget.com/101-mishloach-manot-ideas/
Our evening of the Megillah Reading is mainly geared towards adults, but children are certainly most welcome to attend too.
