Celebrate Purim with Hakafa this year at our annual

 MEGILLA READING CELEBRATION

   

Wednesday, March 16, 2022 – 7:00 p.m.
in-person at the Winnetka Comunity House (620 Lincoln Ave)

OR via Zoom (Meeting ID: 816 6759 5482)

Join us for a fun-filled evening as we read from the Megilla!
(Scroll of Esther or Megillat Esther in Hebrew)

We've heard it from the Grammys, through the grapevine, leaving on a jet plane, in a yellow submarine, amidst the sounds of silence, wishing upon a star, with all our heart and soul, under a disco ball, on the television, through the painful 80's, with Glee, on Broadway, and more.

This year? Come for our Jolly Holiday.... 
Costumes are encouraged - Prizes for anyone who wears one!

Purim is a one-day celebration observed on the 14th day of the Hebrew month of Adar (one month before Passover).  It commemorates the saving of the Jewish communities living under Persian rule from Haman's evil designs to exterminate them.  Although there is some uncertainty about the date, the events described in the Book of Esther (Megillat Esther) took place about 450 B.C.E.

At Hakafa, we joyously celebrate Purim with our annual Megilla Reading and Purim Carnival (most years),
