Be Happy! It’s Adar! Purim is coming with a busy night at Beth El.

The Megillah reading and costume parade begins at 6:30 pm. A children’s program will take pace in Barr Hal with refreshments, a balloon artist and a magician after their costume contest,7–8 pm. At this time, there will be a special treat for the adults. Linda Belkov’s idea of a brief musical show became a reality when she and Linda Drucker collaborated, creating the first ever Purim Parody. The evening is hosted by MC Rabbi Arnowitz. The cast includes among others, David Cardon as Good King Ahashverus, Deb Segaloff as the Lovely Queen Esther, Paul Peck as her kind cousin Mordechai, and don’t forget Haman, the guy you don’t want to invite to the party, who is portrayed by Adam Foleck. There will also be Sunday Religious School singers, as well as many other actors from the Beth El family. Adults will be seated “cabaret style” in Myers Hall with wine, spirits and noshes during the performance.

The Adult Megillah reading takes place at 8 pm.

The entire evening is family-friendly. Call the office at 625-7821 to RSVP.
