PEF Jewish Committee Purim Celebration – Region 8

Date(s) - 03/05/2014
5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Region 08 (PEF HQ) - Albany


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 PEF REGION 8 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 Monday March 3, 2014 to Andrea Coton in the PEF Region 8 office at 518-785-1900 x228 or send an email to Richard Nebb. The meeting room can accommodate no more than 50 people; we therefore cannot accept more than 50 RSVPs.

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

PRICE: YOUR participation
