Purim Palooza 2024

The event scheduled for 23 Mar was canceled due to weather.

Stephanie Abrams, award-winning mime, contortionist, and circus arts coach and director, is excited to share her and her students’ acts with us, and intends to produce a BAJC fundraiser on a Saturday night or Sunday afternoon/early evening sometime between now and the end of June.  Stay tuned for details!

In addition, a Purim Schpiel, the satirical re-enactment of the Megillah (scroll) of Esther will be performed. This scroll tells the story behind Purim.

Wild costumes and masks are encouraged. You may come as a character from the Book of Esther, a character from your own imagination, or simply just come as you are.

A cash bar will feature beer and wine from Windham Wines along with finger foods, pastries, non-alcoholic beverages, and Hamentaschen, the special Purim delicacy.

Admission is by Donation with a suggested amount of $10-$20.00, payable by cash, check, or PayPal. For information contact info@bajcvermont.org or stephan@bajcvermont.org or call our office 802-257-1959.
