Members of B’nai Emunah, Beth Israel Judea, Ner Tamid and Or Shalom gathered on the eve of March 15th to celebrate Purim at BIJ. Costumed crowds gathered for dinner while the four rabbis in their clown outfits entertained. Then the Whole Megillah unfolded in various ‘tents’ with a fire-breathing megillah in one room while a juggling megillah unfolded in another. Macaroni and cheese groggers (for donation to the Food Bank) resounded with each mention of Haman as the story of Esther was told through humor and music. All reassembled for Havdalah and dessert, followed by dancing to the strains of Klezmania.
