On Thursday, March 20th, the Roosevelt Island Jewish Congregation will sponsor a Purim celebration to be held at a local CommunityRoom. For information call 212-753-0237.

What's Purim You Ask? Think of it as Jewish Halloween but in this story the bad guy wanted to exterminate the Jews and a beautiful Jewish Maiden (the King's wife) tricked the bad guy (named Haman) preventing the slaughter and afterwards we all ate. Just your standard story. To learn why we dress in costumes and how she tricked him come by and stay for the whole megillah.

Come in Costume – Come as You Are – Come to have fun - Hear the Megilla read – hear some music – Bring some food (kosher, dairy) – bring something for our Shaloch Manos packages for those in Goldwater-Color who cannot attend* – Bring your attitude – Bring your appetite- Bring your musical instruments - Bring some groggers and make some noise - Have Fun – Have a drink –Have a Hamantaschen - Be in the costume parade - Win a prize !
