Wednesday, March 20th- 6:00pm- Pizza Dinner, 6:30pm- Purim Service
When Adar comes in, joy increases. So says our tradition. And a lot of
that joy comes from the holiday of Purim, when everything is topsy
turvy, no one acts like they would on other days, and costumes, masks,
noisemakers and drinking are the order of the day.
CAA will be holding its annual Megillah Reading and Purim event on Erev
Purim, which falls on Wednesday, March 20. Come in costume – the more
outrageous the better. There will be a costume parade, much singing and
revelry, hamentaschen for all and some comedic skits in between chapters
of Megillat Esther.
We’ll start at 6:00 p.m. with a pizza dinner, followed by the service
and megillah reading beginning at 6:30. If you’d like to perform in a
Purimshpiel (the aforementioned comedic skits) or write one or put on
some other amusement, now’s your chance to be a star! Contact President
Ronnie Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell her what you’d
like to do.
Thursday, March 21st at 4:45pm- Community Kitchen

Friday, March 22nd at 7pm- Short Shabbat Service
Once a month we go for brevity in a service that is accessible to
beginners yet still full of tradition. Prayers are often “sampled” rather
than sung through, and there is more English language singing and reading
than in our other services. Services finish within an hour and there is
more time to schmooze afterwards at the oneg.
