Congregation Bnai Jacob
Official Purim Decree
AND IT HAS COME TO PASS IN THE CONGREGATION B’NAI JACOB that a decree has been issued that the holiday of Purim shall be observed with joy and gladness, the evening after Shabbat, Saturday, March 15 and on Sunday, March 16.
LET THERE BE the reading of the Megillah, the singing of songs, the attirement in costumes, and the booing of Haman, the villain!
AND IT HAS BEEN FURTHER DECREED that all humankind endeavor to rid itself of the influence of Haman and evil, so that all may ever know joy and happiness unto the fullness of days.
Reservations are due on Thursday, March 6 for the 7:00pm Shabbat Seudah planned prior to Havdalah and the Megillah Reading/Purim Celebration on March 15, and for the Seudah Brunch following the 11:00am Megillah Reading on Sunday, March 16. Call or email the office.
