IN PERSON: The Whole Megilla – Purim Dinner, Megillah Reading, and Bash

March 23 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm
This year we’re holding grief, tension, and discomfort alongside the deep potential of Purim, with the destruction of Gaza raging on, most hostages still in captivity, and the suffering of Palestinians and Israelis present in every moment.
Rebbe Nachman taught:
The rule is that a person has to be very determined and put all their strength into finding joy at all times. For human nature is to draw itself to gloom and depression on account of life’s vicissitudes and misfortunes. And every human being is filled with suffering. Therefore, a person has to exercise great effort in tying themself to being happy at all times, and to bring themself to joy in any way they can—even with silliness. (Likutei Moharan, Part 2, 24:2)
We’ll join again with our friends at Urban Adamah, Base Bay and Chochmat HaLev for Purim this year. On this night of turning everything upside down, maybe something will open up that can lead us toward justice, peace, safety and healing.
