Celebrate Purim 2023 With Beth Am

Purim Begins on Monday Evening, March 6

Get your costumes and groggers ready for Purim, the holiday of joy and laughter! As we read in the Book of Esther, "Mordechai sent dispatches to all the Jews... to observe the fourteenth and fifteenth days of Adar every year... as days of feasting and merrymaking, and as an occasion for sending gifts (mishloach manot) to one another and presents to the poor" (Esther 9:20-22). We'll have opportunities for people of all ages to hear the Megillah and celebrate the triumph of Esther and Mordechai over the wicked Haman. Below you will find a schedule of Beth Am Purim celebrations as well as Purim resources. Please check the Beth Am website for last-minute details and updates.

Purim Tzedakah Project: One of the mitzvot of Purim is giving matanot la’evyonim (gifts to the poor). This year, instead of bringing your grogger (noise maker) to Beth Am on Purim, please bring an unopened box of pasta or mac and cheese. After the Purim shpiel, we'll collect the boxes and donate them to the JFCS food pantry.
