We’re off to see the wizard of Oyz with this year’s Purim celebration – open to all! 


Purim Shpiel and Carnival

Sunday, March 17th starting at 10:30am with Megillah Reading and Shpiel; Carnival to Follow

We’re not in Kansas anymore, Tovah! Our day begins with a reading from the megillah (traditional scroll of the Book of Esther) and a performance of The Wizard of Oyz, an original Purim Shpiel. Costumes are encouraged – be sure to visit our photo station in the lobby!

Following the shpiel, our Purim Carnival will provide fun for all ages. Enjoy games, activities, bounce houses, pizza, and hamentaschen along with live music by CBI’s own A Touch of Klez. Eric Girardi of Bending Gravity will give interactive yo-yo and juggling performances. Vashti’s Getaway, our adult room, will have special foods, adult beverages, and games (who will win Manny Manischweitz?). Plus new this year: a virtual reality tour of ancient Jerusalem.

A modest donation of $2 per person or $5 per family is appreciated at the Haas Entrance to cover costs; $1 raffle tickets and drink donations help defray party costs. Thank you to Community Coffee for sponsoring the bounce houses.
