  • Sun25
    Purim Carnival, Costume Ball and Cavorting led by Rabbi Devora Lynn
    February 25, 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm
    Unitarian Universalist Church of Arlington

    Purim is a holiday of upheaval, based on the biblical book of Esther. The story has an unpredictable king in charge, a maleficent adviser behind the scenes plotting against an immigrant community, and a young and beautiful Jewess who saves the day. Historically, it was a day for Jewish community members to poke fun at their oppressors, to forget their woes, to feast and provide food for the poor.

    We’ll be starting the festivities at 4:00 with a low-key Purim carnival for families with kids. Costumes are welcome! At 4:45 we’ll have a retelling of the Purim story, with reading from the Megillah (scroll of Esther), noisemakers, and a Purim Spiel — a parody of the story performed by adults and kids. Come one, come all and join in the fun! We’ll be in the Fellowship Hall.
