Purim Photos

Purim Celebration – Monday, March 9th
6:30 Dinner
7:30 Service
We will be performing a “Shpiel” or 45-minute play to tell the Purim story. Members of Bashert will perform live Purim-lyric renditions of the songs, which, this year, will be Beach Boys tunes! (You may remember last year we had the Beatles among us!) We need at least 10 participants for speaking parts, including Esther, Haman and many others (no singing or acting experience is necessary!). Please contact Amy in the CBI Office to sign up and you will surely have “Fun Fun Fun” at this festive event! – Bob Moverman
