What’s Up For Purim?

By Paula Eskoz

Sunday, March 17


Sunday, March 17, at our religious school
Is a Purim program that will surely be cool
For children AND adults, so please attend
Much appreciated if a “hand” you can lend

Yummy Hamantashen ready to bake
Creative, noisy Graggers for all to make
Blessing Bags to fill for the homeless at PADS
So we can help them be a little less sad

Dress in costumes if you like, you will be seen
Purim songs led by Rabbi Tom and Ilene
Second half of the morning is carnival games
Followed by lunch, you’ll be glad you came!

Wednesday, March 20 

Big Night with lots of fun in the works . . . 

Come out, come out, wherever you are
MCJC friends from near and from far
Please join us March 20 for our Purim Shpiel
Returning this year, along with a small meal

From 5 until 6, we’ll be serving dinner
Then a Wizard of Oz Shpiel, should be a winner
At Haman’s name, shake a Gragger or two
Drink some Goldschlager, while you BOO

Please come in costume, it adds to the fun
There will be something for everyone
So come with the kiddies, the night won’t be late
More info to follow, we can hardly wait!

Our Pizza Dinner Is Followed by the Megillah Reading/Purim Shpiel

Wizard of Oz Theme – Wear a costume, and shake, rattle, & roll that gragger!  

March 20 is a very big night for the Religious School and our whole congregation!

The Megillah Reading and Purim Shpiel follows our 5:00 pm pizza dinner. The fun-filled reading in the MCJC tradition of Purim Shpiels begins at 6:00 pm and is not to be missed!

This year our Megillah Reading has a Wizard of Oz theme.  Costumes are welcome and encouraged!  

All these great activities make one great Purim evening celebration for the Religious School and our whole community. Come on out with the whole family. It’s a great time to bring friends to introduce them to our MCJC community.

P.S. If you would like to attend the pizza dinner or can bring Hamantaschen, please email school@mcjconline.org.
