Havurah Shalom Celebrates Purim: Saturday, March 19
February 28, 2011
Costumes, hamentashen, singing, and a special Purim Shpiel (play)…Purim is on the way! All ages are invited.
This year our celebration will focus more on kids, but will incorporate many of the familiar elements from years past, including:
2:45-3:30 Make Hamantashen and/or Masks:
3:30 – 5:00 Purim Spiel, Costume Parade, Singing: A kid-friendly rendition of the Purim story with lots of laughs and audience participation.
Hamentashen Bake-Off: Calling all bakers! Do you favor apricot filling? Prune, poppyseed, Nutella? We love ‘em all and there’s never too many. Please bring a batch to share. Our distinguished panel of judges will be on hand.
Noise-making: Although we won’t have a complete reading of the Megilla, there will be plenty of opportunities to drown out the name of you-know-who. Like last year, we’re supporting the CommunityWarehouse by asking folks to bring new or used pots and pans, spatulas, wooden spoons, and silverware (especially forks and knives) to bang as noisemakers (then we’ll donate them)
Costumes: Raid the dress-up box and parental closet (no need to buy something!)
Light finger foods will be provided, but this year there’s no potluck, so we encourage kids (and parents) to eat something beforehand.
PLEASE RSVP by March 15 with your family names and ages of any children.
