Celebrate Purim with the PEF Jewish Committee
The PEF Jewish Committee invites all PEF members and retirees and their guests to join the committee in celebrating Purim from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 15, at the PEF Region 10 office, 225 Broadway, 14th floor, in Manhattan (across from City Hall).
Purim commemorates the survival of the Jewish people in ancient Persia (now Iran) from the threat of annihilation by Haman. This story is found in the Megillat Ester (biblical Old Testament book of Esther). The event is traditionally celebrated by giving to the poor and to friends, and by sharing a Purim feast. The committee’s celebration will include music and food such as falafels and hummus, salads and kosher wine, among other treats.
If you would like to attend, please call 516-660-1972 or email committee Chair Paul Kalka at gro.f1490498751ep@ak1490498751lakp1490498751. — Sherry Halbrook
