Drop everything. Put on your calendar, March 15th. That is the evening of Purim and our Brotherhood* and Sisterhood* have some special events planned that night, starting at 5 with Havdallah, Megillah reading, events for the kiddies, dinner, and entertainment from our very own Dag (the House Rock Shabbat Band), with all new dance music. In case you don’t know, Purim is kind of the Jewish Halloween in that wearing a costume is de rigueur.
Another custom is to drink until ‘ahd lo yodah’ – you can’t tell the difference between cursed Haman and blessed Mordechai.
