‘Twas a “wonder”ful Purim…

I speak from my heart!On Wednesday March 20, Emanu-El celebrated Leil Purim in grand style. Participants young and old showed up fully attired. Our gathering included “women” with matching blue hair and dresses, some in imperial/palatial garb, tux and top hat, and even a sexy police officer.  And,  who can forget the appearance of Wonder Rabbi?  There was a make-up artist on hand, and a karaoke machine for the post-megillah festivities.
Our youth did us proud with their wonderful megillah reading and their costumes and make-up.  Many other people stepped up to read from the scroll of Esther with fun, flair and passion.
Finally, as with any Jewish event, we were treated to delicious foods: hamantaschen, salads and mini pizzas. Thanks to Penny Tennenhouse we have a wonderful pictorial record of the event.
