PurimFest including Heavy Shtetl and Family Megillah Reading!

March 24 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Celebrate Purim with PurimFest at JRC! Our celebration will start off with a costume parade, music, and family Megillah reading at 10 am. We’ll then have family-oriented activities and games in JRC’s style—laid back, warm, cheerful, and participatory! Always popular are our hamentaschen baking and eating and cake bingo. An adult blood drive will take place at JRC as well. Family activities will be most enjoyed by children 2-12. You’ll have more fun in a costume!

10:00-10:45 — Family Megillah reading, costume parade, and music by Heavy Shtetl
10:45-11:40 — Games and activities on the 2nd floor
11:40-12:00 — Cake bingo

PurimFest admission is $20 per family. This includes games and activities, freshly-baked hamentaschen, and a cake bingo card. A family ticket can be purchased in advance or on site. Save time at check in by signing up here.
