Purim 5775 was a great success!!! We are grateful to all those who organized this year's activities especially: Vivian Klaus and Joan Nachmani who worked on the successful and delicious Mishloach Manot project. Brenda Pace and Leah Liberman who planned our super cute Kids' Pre-Purim party. Our talented Megilla readers, Mendel Kaplan and Rabbi Yossi Rosenbaum, Our Social Committee - Leora Walter, Joan Nachmani, Jeremy Block, Ellen Neuborne, Alexia Friend, and Elly Kramer - as well as their volunteers (Shimmy Rapps, Alan Feder, Harris Marks, David Landis, Cara & Josh Lebewohl, Eli Szus, and many more) for planning and setting up our fun and festive "That '70s Shul" Purim Party. The Lebewohl Family for sponsoring the more delicious features of our party. Our friends at University of Purim for helping us establish our shul as *the* downtown Purim place to be. The Ritual and PR committees that supported of their efforts. The hundreds of people who davened, danced, and partied with us long into the night and throughout Purim day. We are most thankful to Rabbi Bellino who managed and assisted all of these efforts.

Photos of some of these recent events may be viewed on our Facebook Page.

Another reminder that weekday Mincha/Maariv minyan has been cancelled, due to attendance struggles. If you need to request a minyan, please check online for times at nearby synagogues, or use our Discussion Board.
