Purim at Mount Zion – The Best Jewish Holiday for All Ages!
Purim commemorates the story of Esther, who rescued the Jews of ancient Persia (now Iran) from
persecution. Traditions include dressing in costume and eating hamantaschen (triangular stuffed
pastries). It is our Spring time (!) chance for some fun! At Mount Zion, we celebrate the holiday with a Brief Service, Megillah Reading, and performance. This celebration often includes a Shushan Deli, where food may be purchased. Then we hold a carnival on a Sunday during Religious School, in which we have a brief version of the Purim Service & Megillah Reading and then a Purim Carnival, which is open to everyone (invite your friends)! Learn more about Purim.
Due to COVID-19, this year will look a little different, but we can still celebrate virtually!
