Purim 2022

Thank You for Being a Friend! All of our MLRT friends and family are invited to our Golden Girls Purim Megillah Reading, Shpiel & more!

With celebrations including costumes, skits and songs, noisemakers, and gifts of food, Purim is definitely full of fun!
The main communal celebration involves a public reading—usually in the synagogue—of the Book of Esther (Megillat Esther), which tells the story of the holiday: Under the rule of King Ahashverosh, Haman, the king’s adviser, plots to exterminate all of the Jews of Persia. His plan is foiled by Queen Esther and her cousin, Mordechai, who ultimately save the Jews of Persia from destruction. The significance of Purim lies not so much in how it began, but in what it has become: a thankful and joyous affirmation of Jewish survival.
