When was the last time you dressed up like a queen or king? Now is your chance – the EDCJCC’s Purim Carnival is the perfect time for children and adults to dress up and celebrate this festive annual holiday!

Join us for carnival games, arts & crafts, hamantaschen (yummy Purim treats), songs and a Purim play! Don't forget your costume!

We will be making sandwiches for Martha’s Table and costumes for Only Make Believe, a non-profit that creates and performs interactive theatre for children in hospitals and care facilities, as our contribution towards the Purim theme of giving to the needy.

We are also thrilled to host a teen Jewish a cappella group from Congregation Beth El called Marak HaYom, which means "soup of the day" in Hebrew.

Little ones are welcome at this Carnival but it's geared towards ages 3 and up.  

Please bring an unexpired, unopened food item in a cardboard box (like macaroni and cheese or couscous) to decorate as a grogger to use during the Purim play. We will then donate them to those in need in our community. 

Price per family: $23; $18 Discounted Member or DC Minyan Rate

This program is also supported by the Ruth Immerman Weinstein Endowment Fund at the Edlavitch DCJCC.
