CSI Youth Purim Programming by Story Arts

Wednesday, February 28, 6:00PM

We welcome all children to the Story Arts show during the reading of the Megillah.  Heather Forest will do a dramatic telling of the Purim story and other Jewish folktales, accompanied by her guitar.

Parents are encouraged to arrive at 6:00 pm, in order to help their children settle in, and then make their way to the Large Synagogue in time for megillah at 6:15 pm.

Liz Rios and Yona Glass oversee childcare, but children below five years old must be accompanied by their own caregiver.
