Purim on Sunday

We’re really looking forward to our Purim festivities on Sunday 12th March and hope you can join us. Here’s the key information:

  • The event is taking place from 2.30-5.30pm at the Old Church, just across the road from St Mary’s New Church.
  • We ask for a suggested donation of £5 per non-member family to cover costs.
  • Do bring food and drink to share and come in fancy dress!

The volunteer co-ordinators have planned an afternoon to enjoy for children and adults. This will include games like pass the balloon, funky dancing, circle games, gragger-making, nail-painting, face-painting (if someone can volunteer), crown- and mask-making, Purim Spiel, and a fancy dress parade! Please bring vegetarian food for a light meal with Haman Taschen from one of the Golders Green Bakery’s, and ‘graggers’ (rattles) or other noise making devices if you can.

Here’s the plan for the afternoon:

  • 2.30pm: mask- and gragger-making, colour in the characters from the megillah
  • 3.15pm: tell the Purim story, making a giant scroll with the characters
  • 3.30pm: games!
  • 3.45pm: all-ages team challenge
  • 4.15pm: Purim spiel

At the end of the afternoon, experienced Kehillah volunteer visitors are asked to deliver mishloach manot (gifts of cookies and cakes) to one of our elderly or housebound members. Please get in touch with Edwin or Shulamit to volunteer.

Meanwhile, don’t forget we’ve got our Musical Comes Shabbes with Me tonight (click here for details) and that our next shabbat morning service is an Innovation Shabbat of Play and Creativity at the New Community Rooms as usual on 18th March, followed by a community lunch – so there’s lot’s to look forward to!

And, if you’re yet to see Denial, the final showings at JW3 are taking place next week: more information here.
