Purim at BCRC was a very festive event this year! We started with a Megillah reading by Rabbi Amy (and all of the attendees) on the actual date of Purim. Boo Haman! Have you ever joined us to read the entire Book of Esther? If not, try it next year - it is considered a mitzvah to read it on Purim! On Friday we had our traditional Purim spiel. This year we presented "Spooky Purim! - A Musical Purim Shpiel and Erev Shabbat Service (sort of)". Another great show! Why pay those high prices for Broadway when you can get the same level of entertainment at BCRC? Sunday our pre K-7th grade classes first performed one of the important mitzvoth of Purim, giving gifts to the needy ("matanot l'evyonim"), by making bagged lunches to be distributed to a local shelter. That was followed by our Purim carnival, with many fun games, crafts, hamantaschen, and that good ol' BCRC Purim favorite, pizza! Click here to see the photo album (must be logged in for privacy). Thanks to all the volunteers who made this happen!
