Announcements

 

UPCOMING EVENT – PURIM!!  

We will be celebrating with Tikkun Leyl Shabbat

When: 7:15pm, Saturday, March 11, 2017: 14th of Adar

Where:  15th Street Presbyterian Church, 15th & R Street N.W., DC

Male friends at Purim

Purim is a holiday characterized by storytelling, costumes, plays, parodies, imbibing in various beverages, and eating hamentaschen (a three-pointed cookie with a variety of fillings). We read a scroll (Megillah) that tells the story of Queen Esther, Mordechai, and others.

Everyone is very welcome to enhance the reading of the story with silliness and shtick.

If you have an idea for one or more new slides of the slide show which parallels the Megillah, please contact  bracha.laster@gmail.com.

          Please come!! Please bring

  1. When the name “Haman” is called, many people like to shake their groggers, which are boxes of pasta, rice, or cereal…that are later donated to a local soup kitchen.
  2. We exchange Mashloah Manot (traditional goody bags with at least three different items) to spread the holiday cheer.
  3. We give tzedakah (charitable contributions) to multiple social justice organizations.
  4. A beverage of your choice. Optional: Bring snack food that requires no utensils.

Approximate times:
6:52 Shabbat ends
6:53 One sentence prayer to separate Shabbat from Purim
7:05 Activities begin!  Photo booth with silly costumes; Animal balloons: Tattoo parlor; Face painting; Children’s Purim parade; General smoozing; other activities.
7:45 Ma’Ariv (Evening service)
8:10 Havdalah (ritual ending of Shabbat and beginning of the regular week)
8:20 Megillah reading with new slide show

Dec. 25 Tzedakah Project at Father McKenna Center

We had another terrific volunteer morning yesterday (Dec 25) at the Father McKenna Center.  We served breakfast, began lunch preparation, and helped organize the food pantry at this wonderful program for homeless men located just 1 mile from our nation's capitol building.

It was especially wonderful to have our teenage and young-adult children with us.
