Purim@NSTE

Queen Esther entertained and enthralled our youngest children while as many as 50 drums, supplied by our new friends at Drums for Fun, worked in close rhythm to completely drown out mention of Haman’s name.  In between, the VJ stage was filled with superheroes, princesses and biblical characters: so many costumes and such fun for the kinder. 
 
A short service and thoughtful d’var Torah by Rabbi Roberts kicked off a night of ruach that included an illustrated Megillah reading featuring the whole Simpsons clan and a musical shpiel by our choir members.  A devoted kitchen team worked for hours preparing a sumptuous meal of fish and chips with a side of coleslaw.  Naturally, there was plenty to drink…but enough said about that!
