Celebrate Purim

Shake your graggers, boo the villainous Haman, solve a monster mystery, cheer brave Esther and Mordechai, raise your glass, and celebrate the survival of the Jewish people during two Purim celebrations at Temple Israel on Wednesday, March 4.

Solve a monster mystery? That's not in the usual Purim story. Our children's Purimshpiel is Purim Monsters Inc., a play about monsters who sneak into children’s rooms in order to scare them and collect their screams for the Scream Gragger. But one Purim, all the screams are missing. Written by Marci Brumberg, Educational Director of Beth Israel Synagogue in Roanoke, Va., the play is guaranteed to evoke some laughs, stifle screams and keep everyone on the edge of their seats until this mystery is solved. 

Primary actors are students in Hebrew and Confirmation studies. But there are roles for every child (and adult) who wears pajamas and isn’t afraid to use their vocal chords. So join us at 5 p.m. in the sanctuary.

Stay for a light supper at 5:30 p.m. (Yes, there will be hamantaschen.) Then take part in the congregational Megillah reading, featuring joke-telling, shenanigans and Die Gantze Megillah (The Whole Megillah), with some chapters in Hebrew and some in English. Be sure to wear a costume and bring a tasteful joke or two to tell.

And on your way out the door, pick up some mishloach manot to deliver on Thursday, Purim Day, to elders in the congregation.

Purim in Shushan

In Shushan and walled cities in existence since Joshua’s time, Purim is celebrated on Adar 15, which occurs on Friday, March 6. We remember Shushan Purim with a children's costume parade during Family Shabbat services, which begin at 5:30 p.m. Stay for the DuSTY Purim Carnival after our Shabbat meal.
