On March 1 at 11:00, the Jewish Cultural Center “Solomonika” invites children and parents to the celebration of the Jewish holiday Purim. The celebration will be held at the Menorah Center’s Sinai concert hall.
Purim is a celebration of the Jewish salvation from their enemies in the days of the Persian king Ahasuerus (Artaxerxes), the celebration of getting rid of the villain Haman, who had conspired to destroy the Jewish people. For twenty-three centuries, the Jewish people have celebrated this holiday, year after year, generation after generation. This wonderful and joyful holiday serves as a perpetual source of courage and faith, the harbinger of the final Salvation, which is now just around the corner.
It’s a custom to give each other gifts on Purim. Most often gifts are a variety of sweets, including the so-called “Haman’s ears”, triangular cookies with poppy seeds or jam. Purim is a carnival celebration. On this day, according to a Purim tradition, Purimshpils, special performances are organized.
The Jewish Cultural Center “Solomonika” has prepared a special holiday program for you:
- Cheerful children Purimshpil (a performance filled with tricks).
- Purim workshops (fascinating thematic master classes by professional teachers of the Child Development Center “Solomonika Kids”).
- Sweet gifts to each child.
Children are welcome to attend in carnival costumes. Each child will have an opportunity to show his/her costume on stage and take part in a festive lottery.
Come as a family and enjoy the fun atmosphere of Purim with the Jewish cultural center “Solomonika”! Admission is by invitation only.
Invitations are available at the JCC “Solomonika” located at 4/26 Sholom Aleichem St, Menorah Center, 6th floor, elevator B.
