Thanks to all who joined us for our masked and costumed Purim Parade yesterday, and especially to our storyteller and family educator Jane Shiyah. That was our first taste of Purim this year. Our next taste will come on Thursday evening (when Purim begins — except in ancient walled cities like Jerusalem, which celebrate Purim one day later.) Join us on Zoom for our annual Purim play.
