The Chabad Jewish Center in Needham will celebrate Purim the miraculous escape of the Jewish people from the ancient Persian Empire with a Wild West themed party on Sunday, Feb. 24 and everyone, from all backgrounds, is invited.
We focus on doing interesting and innovative holiday programs while still keeping with the holiday traditions, said Rabbi Mendy Krinsky in a press release about the event. This party will combine ancient Jewish traditions with a modern twist.
Purim is celebrated by exchanging food between friends and giving charity to the poor, according to the release. It features a traditional festive meal and the reading of the story of Purim.
The party will add entertainment by Brenner Family Magic, with western-themed tricks; a masquerade in Western attire or a costume of your choice, music and traditional Purim dessert Hamentashen.
Anyone interested in attending should RSVP by Feb. 17. Tickets are $18 for adults, $10 for children aged 3-12, or $54 per family. Sponsorship is $180.
