Purim Dinner and Celebration

Saturday, March 11

The reading of Megillat Esther begins promptly at 7:15 pm in the Large Synagogue.

Immediately following the Megillah reading, registered guests are invited to a festive family-style meal in Levy Auditorium. In addition to a tasty dinner, guests will enjoy our annual children’s costume parade.
