Purim at CBI

March 24th 5:00pm

Join your CBI family and friends for a festive and silly celebration of Purim.

The Megillah reading will begin at 5:00pm.  Please fill the Purim mitzvah of giving Tzedakah by bringing non-perishable food items for the JFS Food Pantry (consider bringing ‘noisy’ food and use it as your grogger first!).  Stay for the Purim mitzvot* of hearing the Megillah AND enjoying in celebratory feast which will follow the reading.  Bring your vegetarian/dairy potluck dish to share.  Following dinner, stick around for some funny antics- AND we’ll get you home before dark!

*The fourth Purim mitzvah is to give gifts of food to your friends- you know this as mishlach manot.  We invite you to do this mitzvah as well.
