Wednesday Night Live with Or Chadash and the Whole Megillah!!!

7:00 pm, March 4, 2015

Come out ready to party in the main sanctuary as Emanuel joins with Or Chadash on Wednesday March 4 for a wacky service, a meshuganah  Megillah reading in which we will tell the story of Esther, Mordechai, the one whose name we love/hate to say and the rest of the Shushan crew.  We’ll delight the crowd with megillah reading in many languages.   Bring those groggers and noisemakers! Wear a costume and make it uber festive!

After the megillah reading, we’ll have our annual Purim spiel, “The Chabadfather.” If you would like to volunteer to read a part in the spiel, please contact Office@OrChadash.org.

Hamantashen await us!!
