Our Temple celebrated the holiday of Purim last month, with three
well-attended events. On Sunday, 17 March, the Temple's Hebrew School students took part
in making Hamentaschen, the popular Purim pastry. In Israel, these pastries are
known as "Oznayim Haman" or Haman's Ears.
Erev Purim, on Wednesday evening, 20 March, nearly thirty people
came to the Temple to join in reading the Scroll of Esther - the Megillah. The Megillah
reading service was led by our Rabbinical Intern, Mimi Micner, and the reading of the
Megillah was done by the attendees, in both Hebrew and English. After the service, refreshments
were enjoyed by all.
On Sunday morning, 24 March, the Temple held its annual Purim
Carnival. The event was organized by the Temple's sisterhood. The attendees, particularly
the children, had a fun-filled morning with games, refreshments and Purim costumes.
Pictures taken at the event are shown below.
