A Beatles Purim: March 15th!

The British invasion is coming to the bimah this Purim on Saturday night,  March 15, at 6:30! Replete with your favorite Beatle’s songs, A Beatle’s Purim will tell the story of Esther in a fashion that would have the British Royals shaking a grogger.

Please join Rabbi Matt Drefflin at Beth Shalom for Havdalah, pizza and hamentashen.  Rabbi Matt is already growing his hair and practicing his Megillah and Beatles Spiel. Wear a costume and BYOB. Remember it is customary to boo, hiss, stamp feet and rattle the groggers whenever the name of Haman is mentioned.

It is a special mitzvah to remember the poor during Purim. Please bring non-perishable items or a check made out to the Food Bank of East Alabama.

Rabbi Matt Dreffin will lead Friday night services the night before Purim, March 14, at 7:00.  On Saturday morning, he will lead a Torah discussion from 9 to 10:00. If you would like to schedule some personal time with the Rabbi, please email Margie, who is coordinating the logistics for his visit.  The rabbi will also come to Sunday school to help the children celebrate Purim.
