A Tale As Old As Time: Royalty Before Disney - Text Study with Rabbi Goldberg
Adults | 10:00 - 10:45 AM
Join Rabbi Deborah Goldberg to explore the two queens of the Purim story, Vashti and Esther.  What role do they play in the Purim story? How does our study of Vashti and Esther inform our lives and actions today?  We’ll read some text of the Book of Esther, plus traditional and modern commentaries of these two queens, to deepen our connection to the holiday of Purim.

Join Woody and friends for a sing-along shpiel with our clergy, followed by mask- and crown-making, balloon twisting, and pizza, as we travel to infinity and beyond! Costumes and silliness encouraged!


Disney Goes to Shushan: Shpiel & Megillah Reading
All Ages | 10:45 - 11:30 AM (Live Stream Available)

Wonderful World of Purim Carnival

Ohana Purim Mitzvah Project: Birthday in a Bag for WSCAH
For all ages | 11:30 - 12:30 PM
“Ohana means Family. Family means no one gets left behind or forgotten.” On Purim we include our whole community in that sense of family, and what family doesn’t love a birthday? In partnership with our community partner The West Side Campaign Against Hunger, we’ll prepare Birthdays in a Bag, providing a complete celebration kit for children who would otherwise not be able to enjoy their special day.  This is a wonderful way for us to work together within CRS to bring joy to the broader New York community!
