This past weekend was full of fun Purim celebrations! For those who made it to the Spiel, you know it was funny and full of laughter as we poked a little fun at the current president in our retelling of the tale of Esther. Sunday morning brought sunshine and beautiful weather for our annual carnival.
Thank you to everyone who came out for the Purim fun. Special thanks to our Purim Spiel Players: Danny Katz, Sarah Mantell, Maddie Koumelis, Aliyah and Maddie Carrillo, Noah Antler, Ilana Rosenberg, Hannah Rosenberg, Adam Smith and Gabriel, Gideon and Miriam Frank. Also thank you to Heather Rosenberg, Minerva Rosenberg, Robin Antler and Lydia Owens for helping with the Spiel and to Minerva Rosenberg for making a fantastic carnival a huge success. Thank you to the Men’s Club for donating the pizzas and for all of the people who baked hamantaschen for our festivities. It was great to celebrate with everyone!
