Purim Carnival

March 24 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm

There will be a number of activities geared towards children, including carnival games, inflatable play areas, arts and crafts, and face painting. All games earn children points that can be traded in at the prize table. Traditional Purim food, such as hamentaschen, knishes, and bagels, will be up for purchase during the event. The event is held in celebration of the Jewish holiday, Purim. The Festival of Purim commemorates the salvation of the Jewish people from the Evil Haman. On Purim, children dress up and celebrate by giving gifts and Tzedakah (charity). Everyone, young and old, are encouraged to come dressed as their favorite Purim character or in any costume of their choice. Cost is $5 per child, $1 per adult, with a $20 maximum per family. The entire community is welcome and encouraged to attend. All proceeds will go to benefit the JCC Youth Department.
