Party for Purim!
Wednesday, March 4 @ 5:30pm
Join us for dinner and a Purim party. We will hear the megillah in a whole new way, enjoy klezmer music, sing, and enjoy some adult beverages. This celebration is geared towards adults, but is appropriate for all ages. Come in costume and get ready to participate in the festivities. Of course, we will have hamentaschen! Please RSVP here so we can order enough pizza. We are also asking people to bring a side dish or drinks to share.
Temple Beth El is a diverse, welcoming community that embraces inclusiveness, promotes lifelong Jewish learning, and encourages active participation in Jewish life in Central Maine. We are committed to the progressive ideals of Reform Judaism, and we welcome members and visitors who represent a wide range of Jewish experiences. We seek to deepen our members’ connections to Judaism, foster a spirit of community within our congregation, and engage in social action in the world beyond our synagogue.
