Purim Party and Play

Saturday, March 23rd, 7:00 PM EST

Our fellows hosted yet another Abrahamic House DC Purim party and community Purim spiel!

Purim is a Jewish holiday that retells how a secretly Jewish queen, Ester, helped save her people from Haman.

Here’s a short video that explains the story: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SGjlZjGi8vw

The fellows retold this story, with volunteer actors from their community, as a funny Purim play, also known as a Purim spiel.  

On Purim, people typically dress up to heighten the joy and excitement of the holiday and this party was no exception. There were some truly stunning costumes from our very creative attendees.
