Purim in time of Plague

What's the best holiday to celebrate during a pandemic?  Purim, because we're already wearing masks!


We're holding a 3-part celebration this year.  


First, starting on Erev Purim, Feb. 25, head to our YouTube channel here to listen to Eileen Anderson read a picture-book version of the Megillah!


Then, stop by the synagogue between noon and 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 28, to pick up freshly-baked hamantaschen.  Call Susan at the number below so we know how many to bake! Want to help?  Call her to set up a time - we'll make sure we keep the numbers down so we're safely socially distanced.  We'll also make deliveries to folks in quarantine or isolating that we can reach by car before the evening celebration.


Finally, at 7 p.m., join us online for a GoToMeeting online celebration of the holiday, with music, stories, puppetry and of course, the reading of the whole Megillah, and plenty of noise to drown out the name of You Know Who.  Call Susan at the number below to get login information.


Chag Sameach!
