FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CELEBRATE PURIM ON MARCH 12 WITH CHJ

Looking for an excuse to dress in costume and make a lot of noise? Bring your groggers and come celebrate Purim with the Congregation for Humanistic Judaism (CHJ) Sunday, March 20, from 10:00-12:000 at Bedford Middle School, 88 North Ave., Westport.

March in the costume parade, enjoy a Purim play performed by the students, play carnival style games,!
There will be pizza, fun games and prizes! New this year — Purim Photo Booth and Photo Collage! Have the kids come in costume! We will have photo props too.

Purim commemorates the deliverance of the Jewish people in the ancient Persian Empire from destruction in the wake of a plot by Haman, a story recorded in the Biblical Book of Esther. Esther is the heroine of the story who saves the Jews. When the story of Purim is told, listeners drown out the name of evil Haman with noisemakers.

This family-focused event is a great way for Jewish or interfaith families who are interested in the Congregation to learn more about the group and see our wonderful Sunday School in action. Please RSVP to (203) 293-8867 or email info@humanisticjews.org.

The Congregation has a full calendar of activities for adults and families including Jewish holiday celebrations, Adult Education, Shabbat dinners, a wide array of evening programs and discussion groups. The Sunday school will present a model Passover Seder on April 2nd, also at Bedford Middle School.

The CHJ Sunday School provides a contemporary Jewish education for children in kindergarten through Bar/Bat Mitzvah. Children learn about Jewish holidays, history, literature, and traditions of the Jewish people in a warm, participatory environment. The curriculum is enriched by Hebrew, music, art, dance, and crafts. Jewish and Humanistic values and their relation to interpersonal, social and environmental issues are explored in all areas of the curriculum. Sunday school registration is ongoing.
