PEF Jewish Committee Purim Celebration – Region 12

Date(s) - 03/12/2014
4:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Region 12 - Long Island


The holiday of Purim commemorates the survival of the Jewish people in Ancient Persia from the threat of annihilation at the hand of the powerful and evil Haman. To celebrate this joyous holiday, it is traditional to read from Megillat Ester (The Book of Esther) which tells the story of the events relating to the holiday, dress in costumes, give gifts to the poor (matanot l’evyonim), give gifts to friends (mishloach manot) and enjoy a Purim feast (seudat purim).

Please join the men and women of the PEF Jewish Committee at our very first PEF REGION 12 Purim program as we celebrate the story of Purim with music and graggers, noshes and qvelling, Kosher wine and of course, many hamentaschen.

PLEASE RSVP by Friday March 7, 2014 to Mary at the PEF Region 12 office at 631-360-4360 x10 or send an email to Richard Nebb or Paula Kalka so we will have an accurate head count. If you don’t RSVP for then we can’t guarantee that a nosh will be waiting for you.

All PEF members and their guests are welcome to attend – can you join us?
