The Purim Carnival returns to Congregation Shaare Emeth on Sunday, February 25. Join us for a morning of fun, games and music for the whole family.

The day will begin with a Boker Tov Purim event from 10:30 a.m. – 11 a.m. Wear a costume and you may win a prize! From 11 a.m. until 1 p.m., carnival games will be open. Purchase a wristband in the Temple office or online for unlimited access to games. If you buy yours between February 4th and 23rd, the cost in $13. They will be available for $15 on the day of the carnival.

You won’t want to miss the fun and exciting area for preschoolers in the Bnai El Chapel, return of Jacob’s Ladder in the Kehillah Center, balloon animals, face painting fun games for all ages and – of course – the PRIZE STATION! Every child can visit the prize station as they leave the carnival.
