Purim Car-nival and Canned Food Donation
Wednesday, February 24
6:00 – 7:00 pm
Congregation Emanu-El (on Arguello Street)
Channel your best Mordechai/Esther/Haman, grab a bag of canned food to donate, and join us at the “Palace Gates of Shushan” (aka the front of Emanu-El) for a lively drive-through celebration. Your canned goods will help Jewish Family and Children’s Services meet the increased needs of families and seniors at this time. Every car donating to JFCS will receive a sweet treat in return!
The Whole Megillah: A Reading For Adults
(with Rabbi Jonathan)
Thursday, February 25
6:00 – 9:00 pm
The night of Purim, gather for lively discussion and the opportunity to imbibe until you can’t tell the difference between Mordechai and Haman, as we journey through the entire Megillah. The book of Esther is about power, sexism, and inflated ego, which sounds strangely contemporary! To follow along, pull up “Megillah from Sefaria” by using the search string “megillah text” in Google.
