Purim is a holiday full of merrymaking, hidden messages, and the opportunity to seek out truth and justice. Join the Edlavitch DCJCC and JUFJ for an evening featuring Purim carnival games (budget ring toss, anyone?), a hilarious Purim spiel, a costume contest, and special drag performances by Manny Nuff, Neuro Cosmos, and MiSTER SiSTER! Come out to nosh on hamantaschen and learn how we can push councilmembers to prioritize affordable housing and put people over profit. Don’t miss this perfect mashup of shenanigans and social action!

A light vegetarian dinner will also be served.
