Purim is about the play between what’s hidden and what is revealed, resilience and bravery in impossible circumstances and, above all, the simple release of joy and fun! Join us this year for feasting, hamantaschen and general merry-making!

Grappling With The End of the Megillah - Saturday, March 23rd from 9:15-10:00

The Purim fun begins on Shabbat Morning, Saturday, March 23rd from 9:15-10:10 as part of Torah Study. Members of Beth El’s Ritual Committee will lead us in a thoughtful conversation about grappling with the end of the Megillah. The Megillah is commonly thought to have a happy ending - in this session, we’ll explore the problematic nature of the last chapters of the Megillah and how we can make sense of this today. No prior Torah Study or Hebrew experience required; all are welcome. Torah Study is held each week mixed presence - in person in the Beit Midrash and on Zoom at the following link:
