Purim

A celebration for the whole community on Sunday afternoon 12th March 2017 , 2pm-5pm  at The Old Church Stoke Newington Church Street, N16 9ES, you are welcome to bring a vegetarian dish and come in fancy dress. For more details she our upcoming events page.

Purim falls on the last full moon before spring. It is a carnival festival, that laughs in the face of fear, and that enjoins us to eat, drink, send gifts of food to our neighbours, give charity and dress up in silly costumes. We are celebrating the survival of the Jews in Persia, after the brave Jewish Queen and her uncle Mordecai foil the plot of the wicked Haman to bring about our destruction.

The Purim Story, found in the Book of Esther, dates from between 400-200 BCE (before the Common Era).
