Dear Friends,

Purim begins March 23rd. (That's this Saturday night!) Shabbat will conclude at 7:53 PM. We will gather for Maariv at 8:30 PM and then immediately read the Megillah. Following the Megillah there will be a celebration in our Social Hall.

On Sunday morning, March 24th, we will convene an 8:30 AM Shacharit which will be followed by the Megillah at 9:00 AM.

Kids's Party - After the Megillah, we will be hosting our annual Children’s Purim Party from 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM. Join us in our social hall for fun, arts and crafts, and song. The event is free and everyone is invited to attend-and please bring your friends! If you are coming, please register so we know how many to expect.

Sponsorship - The Committee for Purim Chaos is actively plotting various chaotic activities that require some financial support as well as assistance in setting up. For more information and/or to sponsor something, please click to our Purim Chaos page.

Purim Charity - Matanot L'Evyonim (gifts to the poor) is arguably the most important mitzvah of Purim. In the course of our own joy, we make it our duty to share with others, thus amplifying the spirit of unity that we read about in the Megillah, and extending the divine generosity shown to our people. In the spirit of modern Religious Humanism, we extend this kindness to both our Jewish and non-Jewish neighbors. This Purim we will again partner with the Masbia Soup Kitchen Network and Knock Knock Give a Sock, in providing gifts to those in our neighborhood who truly need our assistance. We will also be supporting several Matanot L'Evyonim projects in Israel that support those in need. You may make a donation here or Venmo us @sixthstreetsynagogue (be sure to specify Purim Charity!). Of course you may also bring in a check (made out to Sixth Street Community Synagogue Rabbi's Discretionary) or cash before or on Purim.

Freilichen Purim!!!
