Community Purim Celebration

Celebrate Purim Online with Us!

Sunday, February 21 on Zoom from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm

Raise your voice, make some noise and strut your stuff!

Join in the noise and fun on Sunday, February 21 from 2:00-3:00 pm for a community Purim celebration with Temple B’nai Israel and the rest of our Jewish community.

Costume Parade

Get your costume put together and plan to be in our virtual costume parade. You submit a 15-20 second video or photo of yourself in costume and send it to us. We’ll include it in our virtual costume parade to be shown at the event. In order to be included in the video, your costume video must be submitted by February 15.

Mask Making Competition

Make a mask of any kind, or simply draw or paint one. You can enter the contest in one of three categories: under 6 years, 7-12 years and 13 and up. Everyone who makes a mask will have a chance to show it and participants will choose their favorites during the event.

Fulfilling a Mitzvot of Purim

Lastly, to fulfill the mitzvot of helping others, we’ll be collecting food donations in boxes at both CoM and TBI. As an alternative, you can make monetary donations to either (or both) Loaves and Fishes or Portage Community Center. Collections of non-food items such as soaps, shampoo, laundry detergent, diapers etc. are also welcomed and needed.

Guest Stars

Adam Weiner will be joining as once again as our Master of Ceremonies for the event, and singer extraordinaire Naomi Morse will lead us in fun Purim songs!

We hope that you will join us for a fun afternoon as we celebrate the silliest holiday in the Jewish calendar. For more information and to register for the Zoom link, click here.
