Celebrating Purim In Roslyn


purimPurim is the festival which celebrates the courage of Esther and the wisdom of Mordechai, as they overcome Haman’s evil plot to destroy the Jewish community of Persia. Congregants mock the service, make fun of prayers and enjoy the wit and talent of the entire Temple Sinai family. Purim is a celebration for everyone of all ages, children and adults alike, who like to laugh and sing. The entire community is invited to join us for this happy, fun family event.

On Sunday, March 16, there is the “Billy Joel Purim.” The Megillah Reading and Purim Shpiel is on that date at 10:30 a.m. It is sure to have people dancing in the aisles. Congregants boo Haman, sing, laugh, cheer and eat too many hamantashen. Don’t miss this Purim Extravaganza including the Megillah reading, the annual Temple-wide Purim Shpiel featuring the Purim Players, and a costume parade. Bring pasta in a box to use as a “grogger.” Your “groggers” will be donated to a food pantry after Purim. The entire event is free. The Purim Shpiel is dedicated to the memory of Andrew Moisoff.

Following the Megillah Reading and Purim Shpiel stay on for the Purim Carnival beginning at 11:30 a.m. Bring the whole family (in costume). The Purim Carnival has Purim games, prizes, food and raffles. Win great prizes, terrific raffle prizes, eat and have fun. Children in costume will receive five extra prize tickets, adults will receive 10 extra for dressing up. Admission is $10 per child. Raffle tickets are $5 each or three for $10.
