Unmasked Purim 600x300.jpg 

* WINE & BEER * LIGHT APPETIZERS * HAMANTASCHEN * INTERACTIVE DISCUSSION * OPTIONAL PROFESSIONAL PHOTO SESSION * DIY SERVICE PROJECT CRAFT*

Think, drink, and give back this Purim! Sometimes we wear a mask to cover up who we are. Join us at Beyond Studios, a modern photography studio, as we tackle our common struggle to be the person we want to be while balancing multiple identities (and social media accounts.) Mingle over drinks and festive snacks, participate in an interactive discussion with Rabbi Rami Schwartzer, and enjoy an optional photo session and Purim themed art project with a professional photographer.

We will also make "mask" hats for Only Make Believe, a non-profit that creates and performs interactive theater for children in hospitals and care facilities, as our contribution towards the Purim theme of giving to those in need.
