Yom Shlishi, 28 Elul 5777

This early spring holiday occurs on the 14th of Adar and celebrates the events described in the Book of Esther. Queen Esther saved the Jews of Persia from a plot to destroy them by the king's minister, Haman.

Join us for Purim Carnival hosted by TEMTY,  the Religious School Purim Shpiel and our Purim Party for Adults.
