Purim at The Song Shul—Wednesday, Feb 28
Musical Interactive Megillah!

No one tells the Purim story the way we do!
First we have our fast-paced Megillah reading, so come help us drown out Haman’s name with hands, feet, voice, greggars, and noisemakers (both musical and “noisical”).
Then stick around for The Song Shul’s crazy musical re-telling of the Purim story with our rockin’ singalong. Don’t worry about forgetting lyrics — they’re projected on a big screen for you!
Featuring our live professional band Mordechai and the Amalekites
Hosted by Cantor Simon & Aliza
Great prizes for costumes (seriously – great prizes!)
